The Rock Got His Mom A New Home For Christmas, And You Can Watch Her Emotional Reaction

You always want to give your mother the perfect Christmas present. If you are fortunate enough to have a loving and caring relationship with the woman who brought you into this world, and/or helped raise you, you owe it to her to give her a gift that suits the extraordinary, meaningful, and gratifying efforts. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson definitely wanted to give his dear mother the right present, and he certainly provided one hell of a gift. As he revealed on his social media, he got his mom a new house. The actor/professional wrestler provided a video too. Check it out.

As Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson admits in the Instagram post, it was a great gift that "felt good" for the actor -- as you can likely imagine. Throughout Johnson's formative years, he admits that he and his mom grew up in little apartments across the United States. They didn't really have a home to call their own throughout the years they spent together. But she continued to provide and support for Johnson, and he wanted to repay that lasting effort.

Sure enough, being the extremely rich and giving person he is, Dwayne Johnson wanted to make sure his parents felt provided. He gave them cars and other things they needed throughout their lives -- all on his dime. But with this gift, The Rock admits it felt like giving his mother the golden ticket from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The reason why is because he says this gift allows his mom to choose any house she wants, anywhere she wants to live. It's the golden opportunity for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to give his mother the perfect, most idyllic home. She really appreciated it.

Talk about one Merry Christmas! The video is a cute and emotional tribute to The Rock's mom, as she can be seen crying and trying to hide her tears from the camera that Dwayne Johnson is holding up to her face to capture this life-changing moment. It was undoubtedly a tremendous gift.

The Rock is no stranger to giving extraordinary gifts to his loved ones. For instance, the A-list actor gave his long-standing stunt double his very own, newly-leased car as a tribute to working with the big guy throughout the past two decades. But this gift goes above-and-beyond his gift-giving efforts in the past. Because it is the actor's mom, he needed to give the woman who has provided him with so much over the years the best gift possible. And it seems that The Rock has accomplished that goal with this incredible gesture of love and appreciation. It was a great Christmas for the Johnsons.
