"About two or three weeks ago, I called my dad and said, 'See, you're probably happy where you are right now, but I want to do something for you. I want to buy you a brand new home wherever you want to live, you can live. "He could not believe it, he was speechless. So he just called me. It's a big weekend, he'll take a look at the lots.

In the captioning of the Instagram video, Johnson explained the effects his father had on him:
"He is a weathered old soul, and like all weathered souls, there is often a hard, historical path that leads them there , Well, for my pops, this path began at the age of 13, when his mother kicked him out of his house on Christmas day and forced him to live on the street (very true and damn story), leaving his reality of compassion and love through pain Toughness was forged.
"He pulled me up with this harsh physical love and beat my ass in gyms and wrestling mats. I hated it as a kid, but today as a man thankful for it, it shaped my DNA and informed me but I always appreciate the value of hard work and discipline, so I am grateful and this felt good – crazy, how full life can be in a circle. "
He also said that it meant a lot to him to hear his father, an "old, tough guy," express his love so openly.
This is not the first time that The Rock has a parent for her Support repaid; At Christmas in 2018, he also surprised his mother with a new house. "I always say that if you have a good mom, then you have to open up to become a pretty decent person," he said in an Insta post, adding that he felt "happy" to be able to do such things for his parents after everything they have done for him.
"We've lived in small apartments all over the country all our lives," he said in his Christmas post. "Lived like a gypsy on the way from a state The first house my parents ever lived in was the house I bought for them in 1999. They divorced about five years later and how life happens something has happened and things have gotten a little complicated since then i have always made sure that my parents are doing everything they ever need.
