In case you’re late to the party, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s relationship with his mother, Ata, is absolutely precious. On top of all of their red carpet appearances together, his Christmas gift for her this year is seriously incredible—and her reaction may be even better.
Sure, he’s not the only celebrity to give a family member a home for the holidays this year (*ahem* Kanye West), but he definitely made it even more special with a playful Willy Wonka twist. Thanks to her new Golden Ticket, Ata will get to choose any home she wants, anywhere she wants it. Woah!
“All our lives growing up we lived in little apartments all across the country…The first home my parents ever lived in was the one I bought for them in 1999. They divorced about 5 years later and as with life, stuff happens and things got a little complicated,” he wrote in the touching Instagram post. “Since then I always made sure my mom and dad have everything they’ll ever need—houses, cars, et cetera. But the house this time is a special one and the timing is very meaningful.”
His mom, who couldn’t hold back the tears of excitement and was obviously completely surprised. Likely because, well…1) it’s a new home and 2) as her son said, the timing was special. “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.”
