This video made me smile today, so I definitely wanted to share!
Dwayne Johnson grew up struggling and watching his parents work hard to provide for their family. When Dwayne became a famed wrestler and eventually broke into acting, he made sure that whatever his parents needed was taken care of. Even now that his parents are divorced, he still takes care of them.
For Christmas this year, Dwayne surprised his mama with a “Golden Ticket,” much like Willy Wonka. Instead of a trip to the chocolate factory though, his mom got another huge surprise: a choice of any house she wanted anywhere on the planet! Of course, she was in absolute shock and Dwayne was able to capture her reaction on video.

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 🎅🏾
For Dwayne, it was nothing for him to do it. Not only because he’s one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood, but he truly loves and respects his mom for all she’s done. “I always say, if you got a good mama, then you gotta pretty good shot at becoming a decent human being,” he shared in the IG post. “And somehow, somewhere along the line, I became one lucky SOB to be able to make stuff like this happen.”
