Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is spreading love to those around him!
The actor once again put a smile on the face of his family member with the sweetest gesture ever. He recently sweetly surprised his cousin and WWE star Tamina with a house and car, and many were touched by the kind gesture.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Surprises Cousin With Lavish Gift
Over the weekend, the “Red Notice” actor uploaded a heartwarming video of him surprising Tamina, whose real name is Sarona Snuka, with her new house.
The Rock kept Tamina’s eyes closed with his hands as he led her into the furnished property. He was dressed in a sporty outfit consisting of a pair of black shorts and a matching basketball jersey, while Tamina rocked an all-black hoodie and joggers.
“Alright, we love you so much cuz. We’re so proud of you. Welcome to your new home,” Johnson declared as he unveiled the new home to Tamina’s utter surprise.
She was evidently taken aback by the lavish gift, and seeing her loved ones around made the surprise even more special. Tamina couldn’t hold back the tears.
In the accompanying caption, Johnson got emotional about the heartwarming moment, writing, “Hard to explain these emotions for all of us as I led @saronasnukawwe thru her new door. This one felt good. Surprise cuz — enjoy your new home!!”
The former WWE legend opened up about his relationship with Tamina, noting that they had been close since childhood.
“Man this girl’s gone thru some tough times, but regardless of what life’s thrown her way – she was ALWAYS determined to break the cycle and become a strong and inspiring single mom example to her two greatest inspirations — her daughters, Milaneta & Maleata,” The Rock sweetly recalled.
The award-winning actor mentioned how hard it was to make it as a pro wrestler and how it was more difficult for a woman to thrive in the industry.
“Sarona (like many amazing women in pro wrestling) made her mind up long ago that she was gonna walk the walk and earn her respect in pro wrestling,” he wrote.
The proud cousin praised Tamina for working harder despite the obstacles in her way and then gushed, “that’s why my heart’s proud. Love you cuz and we always got your back.”

The “Jumanji” actor’s surprise to Tamina comes weeks after he made his mother, Ata Johnson, cry tears of joy after giving her a mind-blowing gift.
As The Blast reported earlier this month, the Hollywood star surprised his mother with a new house, putting a whole new meaning on what it means to be a dutiful son.
The 50-year-old documented the heart-melting surprise on Instagram with a series of videos. The doting mom looked gorgeous in a colorful shirt paired with a black jacket and pants, with her face mildly made up.
In the lovely clip, The Rock encouraged his mother to open a black matte door over which hung a “Le Samoana” sign. Ata fought back tears as she walked around the well-decorated home filled with heartwarming family photos and cultural paintings.
“When I was a little boy, I hated when my mom would cry ~ these days, I’ll happily take her tears of joy,” Johnson began the touching caption attached to the clip.
He continued, “I surprised my mom and bought her a new home. Took me and my design team 8 weeks to get it ready, where she could walk thru her front door for the very first time and everything she saw was brand new and a total surprise.”
In a follow-up post, the “Jungle Cruise” actor took his mother to a special room called the “Smackdown room” filled with memorabilia from her son’s days as a wrestler and DJ.

“In her homes she always has her “Smackdown Room” where she keeps the coolest Rock/DJ memorabilia but over the years they’ve become insanely crowded – so for her new home, I had these cool built ins made and just added only a few memorabilia items,” he sweetly recalled in the accompanying caption.
Johnson confessed that the “Smackdown room” was his least favorite place due to feeling embarrassed about his younger days, but it was his mother’s favorite place to bring guests to.
However, he couldn’t help but love the special room because, “truth is when I’m BY MYSELF 😊, these Smackdown rooms she creates have such positive energy and beautiful mana. Always a good reminder for me to never forget where I came and always be grateful for grind [sic].”
