Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is getting some big praise from fans after he purchased a brand new home for his mother as a Christmas present.
Johnson's followers are in awe of his generosity after seeing a video of his mom opening her Christmas gift last week. The acclaimed actor wrapped up a card informing his mother, Ata Johnson, that he was buying her a new house.
"This one felt good," Johnson confessed in the caption. "Surprise! Bought my mom a new home for Christmas. 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 [5 yrs] later and as with life, stuff happens and things got a little complicated."

This one felt good. Surprise! Bought my mom a new home for Christmas. 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. Since then I always made sure my mom and dad have everything they’ll ever need - houses, cars etc. But the house this time is a special one 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. Merry Christmas Ma and WOOOHOOO enjoy your new home. Dwanta 🎅🏾

Johnson's post got over nine million views, with comments from fans congratulating, celebrating and thanking him. Many fans were jealous of Johnson, hoping that they could do the same for their mothers some day. Others praised him for using his wealth to give back.
"I am soo very happy for her. I am soo very happy that you are able to treat her like the Queen that she is," one fan wrote. "I am so very glad that you have remained humble through your success. The fact that you stay humble means that you have much more success coming your Dwanta."
"Dwayne, your actions show us how we can be thankful with our relatives, in this case, your mom," added another. "You are an amazing person."
"Dwayne, you have a heart of platinum gold! You're mother is very lucky to have you as her son, not because you give her materialistic things but because your love for her shows through the kind things you do for her and others," a third fan wrote. "God bless you."0comments
