The Rock is a superstar. He took the wrestling world by storm, kicked the Fast and Furious up a notch, stars in Netflix’s biggest movie ever, is prepping to reinvent DC’s superhero hierarchy with his role as Black Adam, and recently won the People’s Choice People’s Champ award, for good reason.
But none of that compares to making his mom happy.
That’s exactly what Dwayne Johnson did this Christmas when he bought his mom a new car.
The actor, who lost his father, wrestling pioneer, earlier this year, took to Instagram to share a video of the moment he delivered the car to his mother, with some help from his adorable daughters.
The Rock captioned the video – and the accompanying photos of his mother beaming inside her new ride – with a heartfelt message of love and thanks:
“This one felt good.
Surprised my mom with a new car for Christmas today 🎅🏾🎄
She was shocked.
She got a few good ugly cries in.
Then once her grand babies joined her inside the car.
She was overcome with pure joy joy.
Hell, even Hobbs, my dog wanted to peep the whip with his new Christmas chicken 🐓🤣
I’m so grateful I can do this kinda stuff for my mom, who’s had one helluva life.
I don’t take any of it for granted.
Neither does she.
Merry Christmas ma, enjoy your new ride!!! 😊🙌🏾
And your Elvis records 🎶🕺🏽
We love you.
You deserve a lot more 🙏🏾”

This video, along with the gesture and the star’s clear gratitude for the privileges his life affords him and his family, are a large part of the reason he is one of the most liked superstars in the world.
