It's always nice to be able to give your mom something special. But when you're Dwayne The Rock Johnson, buying your mom "something special" means buying houses! Over time, The Rock has bought his mom Ata a few homes, but this past weekend he gifted her with her "last home" after a lifetime of traveling. He went ALL out, and shared it on social media!
In this first post, he put together a video with Bruddah Iz's version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" playing. He captioned the video by saying "Love you mom and surprise! When I was a little boy, I hated when my mom would cry ~ these days, I’ll happily take her tears of joy I surprised my mom and bought her a new home. Took me and my design team 8 weeks to get it ready, where she could walk thru her front door for the very first time and everything she saw was brand new and a total surprise. 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. Thats my dream.” Mom, there’s no greater feeling than to make you happy ~ welcome home 🏠❤️🌺 I always say, if you got a good mom then you got a shot at becoming a good, caring human being. Let’s all give our mamas a big grateful squeeze this weekend and make ‘em happy.
He then shared a video where she saw her family room for the first time. Now, I admit my eyes got a tiny bit misty while watching that first video, but this one gave me full-on tears! Dwayne captioned this video by saying "Very cool moment ❤️ Brought my mom into her new family room where we placed her vintage ukuleles 🎶 up on the wall and I was able to unearth pictures of our ancestors that she hasn’t seen since she was a child growing up in Samoa. She misses her mom and dad. I miss them too. Thank you God for blessing me with a little bit of work ethic to make stuff like this happen. Enjoy your new home mom!! Break out the ukulele and let’s 💃🏻🕺🏽😂🎶 #cheehooo"
And then came the introduction to his mom's "Smackdown Room." Dwayne explains "Another cool moment ❤️ Introducing my mom to her new “Smackdown Room” 👋🏾🤣 In her homes she always has her “Smackdown Room” where she keeps the coolest Rock/DJ memorabilia but over the years they’ve become insanely crowded - so for her new home, I had these cool built ins made and just added only a few memorabilia items - Posters, University of Miami game balls, movie awards, championship titles etc. Figured she can add whatever she wants from here. This is her favorite room to bring guests to and it’s my least favorite 😂🙋🏽♂️🤦🏽♂️ because the last thing I want to do is stand in a DJ Shrine while people look around as my mom takes them thru at all the stuff I’ve done. No thanks 🙅🏽♂️😂 But, truth is, when I’m BY MYSELF 😊, these Smackdown rooms she creates have such positive energy and beautiful mana. Always a good reminder for me to never forget where I came and always be grateful for grind. Welcome home mom ❤️ ⭐️ special shout out to my AMAZING DESIGNERS @bianca.a.aubrey and her phenomenal real estate company @beyond_estates along with Amber Powell for doing such an extraordinary job delivering my mom’s home. This was her dream come true. THANK YOU 🙏🏾 🥂 🏠 ⭐️"
No, Dwayne, thank YOU for doing such a beautiful thing for your mom and sharing it for the rest of us to see.
