Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is all about the family – and he’s proven it once again.
The wrestler turned Hollywood megastar has bought his cousin Sarona Snuka – better known to WWE fans as former Women’s Tag Team Champion Tamina – a new home, and she couldn’t hide her emotions as she walked through the door.
Not too long ago, he bought his mother her final, forever home and, now, he's purchased another for his beloved cousin. And if you'd like to see the moment she received her gift, then you're in luck, because there's some heartwarming footage.
The video showed Johnson walking in with Snuka, with his hand covering her eyes.
“We love you so much, cuz. We’re so proud of you,” said Johnson in his Instagram post.
“Welcome to your new home!” Snuka was speechless and covered her mouth with her hands and cried tears of joy.
“This one felt good,” Johnson wrote in his caption. “I’ve known my cousin Sarona since we were little kids growing up together. 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.” Awww!
In the caption, Johnson also acknowledged Snuka’s sacrifice to her craft- professional wrestling. He recognized how tough the business is for women.
“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 and make sure that the hard times she’s experienced were always her REASON to WORK HARDER and never let it become the EXCUSE to GIVE UP,” his caption read.
In another video, Johnson reveals another special surprise for Snuka. Along with the new house, Johnson tells Snuka that she also needs a new ride, and she's bestowed with a new car that leaves her speechless. Clearly, the kids are big fans as well.
"Life as a pro wrestler is very hard. It can be very rewarding, but it can also tax your soul. Life as a female pro wrestler and being a single mom, trying your best to raise two daughters while being on the road, all year around - FOR YEARS… That life is very, very hard.” he said in the caption.
We’re not crying…YOU are! What do you think of Dwayne’s heartfelt gesture?
