Dwayne Johnson just cooked up a special surprise for his mother!
The WWE superstar-turned-actor is best known for his bulging muscles and remarkable portrayal of tough guys in movies. However, there is nothing hard about the Rock’s heart.
The 50-year-old took being a dutiful son to the next level as he left his mother, Ata Johnson, teary-eyed after gifting her a new home.
Dwayne Johnson Buys New House for His Mom And Fills It With Her Favorite Memorabilia
Over the weekend, the “Jungle Cruise” star shared several clips of his mother’s shocked reaction on Instagram after unveiling her new home.
The first video showed Ata dressed in a floral shirt designed with red, white, green, yellow, and black colors. The former wrestler’s mother paired this outfit with a black jacket and pants.
The 73-year-old completed the chic look with bold red lipstick and glossy red nails while keeping her accessories simple by donning a gold wristwatch and matching gold earrings.
As Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s emotional “Over the Rainbow” song played in the background, the “Jumanji” actor’s mother stepped into her new home through the large black front door, which had a “Le Samoana” sign placed above it.
If Ata’s adorable reaction to the surprise did not stir fans’ hearts, her son’s passionate caption did. The Hollywood sensation wrote:
“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.”
The 50-year-old entertainer explained that it took him working with his design team for eight weeks to bring this architectural masterpiece to fruition.

If anyone wondered why it took so long for the 8-time WWE Champion to bless his mother with the profits from his lucrative career, the former athlete clarified that this wasn’t the first house Ata had received.
The father-of-three has blessed his mother with a few houses over the years, but this current home stood out from the list for a special reason.
According to the “Hobbs & Shaw” star, his mother’s dream was to have a final home after a lifetime of traveling, and her doting son ensured it had everything the 73-year-old could dream of.
In a second clip, the California heartthrob showed a teary-eyed Ata getting acquainted with her new family room, where a wall section was designed with her vintage ukuleles.
Another portion of the wall held pictures of the Johnson family ancestors, including long-lost images the actor’s mother had not seen since her childhood in Samoa.
In the final snippet, the “Baywatch” star introduces his mother to the “Smackdown Room,” a place where the 73-year-old kept all her favorite “the Rock/DJ memorabilia.”
Like a true doting mother, the room contained several of her son’s impressive achievements, including movie awards, WWE championship titles, posters, etc.

The Teen Choice Award winner confessed that this was his least favorite room in the house because he found it embarrassing. The Rock wrote:
“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.”
However, Dwayne admitted that when he was alone, he enjoyed his mother’s Smackdown rooms as they radiated “positive energy and beautiful mana.”

Last year, The Blast reported that The Rock happily took on the role of Santa Claus to spoil his loved ones with expensive gifts on Christmas day.
The 50-year-old actor, who treated fans to a free screening of his movie “Red Notice” for thanksgiving, went all out for the merry season by gifting out cars.
The Navy Veteran responsible for caring for Ata and providing meals for women victimized by domestic violence received the “Race to Witch Mountain” actor’s personalized truck.
Dwayne also honored his mother with a brand new car and shared the emotional moment on Instagram, noting that the 73-year-old cried upon receiving her luxurious gift.
The proud grandma also hopped into her new ride with her adorable granddaughters while Dwayne’s dog Hobbs hilariously tried to join the celebrations with his rubber chicken.
