Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is known for having a big and generous heart and his Christmas present to his mother proves it once again. The actor chose to surprise his mother, Ata Johnson, by buying her a brand new house for Christmas.

The 46-year-old took to Instagram to share a video on Saturday showing the moment when he revealed his present to his mother.

Ata was seen reading out of a card from the former WWE star, "This Willy Wonka golden ticket is good for...." she read out before gasping for air and barely continuing "...a brand new home". Ata bursts into tears of joy and hugged her son tightly upon reading the card.


Dwayne captioned the video, "This one felt good. Surprise! Bought my mom a new home for Christmas." Ata then tells her granddaughter Jasmine, "Guess what? I get a brand-new house!"

The Rock then explained how as a child, his family would often move homes and never really created a "home" anywhere.

"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," he continued. "Since then I always made sure my mom and dad have everything they’ll ever need."

"This gift is a special one though 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," he added.

"Merry Christmas Ma and WOOOHOOO enjoy your new home," he concluded.

In the video, Dwayne's daughter, 2-year-old Jasmine, can be seen playing with her new toys in the background.

In March, earlier this year, the superstar bought his dad Rocky a brand new Cadillac after he had his hip replacement surgery. 

Johnson has nicknamed himself 'Dwanta' and has been very generous the entire holiday season. He spent some time with children as a part of his film 'Hobbs and Shaw’s Christmas Wish Granting Day and his work with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Rays of Sunshine Children’s Charity and Starlight Children’s Foundation.

In a video where he documented the children's special day, he shared while handing gifts, "This kind of stuff is easily, easily the best part of my fame."
