The Rock Surprises Mum Ata with New Home (& We’re All Crying With Her!)

Ata Johnson, mama of Hollywood legend Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, has been brought to tears after her son gifted her a brand new home!

The Rock posted the beautiful moment on Instagram, sharing a clip of Ata walking through her new living room, seeing precious photos on the walls of her loved ones and “ancestors that she hasn’t seen since she was a child growing up in Samoa”:

“Love you mom and surprise!” he captioned another clip. “When I was a little boy, I hated when my mom would cry – these days, I’ll happily take her tears of joy.”

He explained that the surprise took 8 weeks to prepare with the help of a design team and that this isn’t the first time he’s been able to give back to the woman who raised him:

“I’ve been lucky enough to have bought her a few homes over the years, but this one is special as she’s told me over and over these past few years, ‘After a lifetime of traveling, I want this home to be my last. That’s my dream.'”

The Rock ended his message by directly addressing Ata: “Mom, there’s no greater feeling than to make you happy – welcome home.”

He also encouraged his 319 million Instagram followers to “give our mamas a big grateful squeeze this weekend and make ’em happy.”
