They don’t call him “Dwanta Claus” for no reason. The wrestler turned actor, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, gave his mother a surprise gift for Christmas, a brand new home.
The moment was captured on video of his mother, Ata, reading a Christmas card and a Willy Wonka Golden Ticket. The video was posted to Johnson’s instagram page with the beginning of the caption reading, “This one felt good”. Johnson has always been opened about the hardships and the struggles that he and his family had experienced while he was a child and even as one of the biggest wrestlers in the world. Happy Holidays to the Johnson family.

This one felt good. Surprise! Bought my mom a new home for Christmas. All our lives growing up we lived in little apartments all across the country. Lived like gypsies on the road from one state to another. The first home my parents ever lived in was the one I bought for them in 1999. They divorced about 5yrs later and as with life, stuff happens and things got a little complicated. Since then I always made sure my mom and dad have everything they’ll ever need – houses, cars etc. But the house this time is a special one and the timing is very meaningful. I told her to treat this card like it’s “Willy Wonka’s Golden Ticket” because she gets to choose any home she wants – anywhere she wants. I always say, if you got a good mama, then you gotta pretty good shot at becoming a decent human being. And somehow, somewhere along the line I became one lucky SOB to be able to make stuff like this happen. Merry Christmas Ma and WOOOHOOO enjoy your new home. Dwanta
