What a gift! Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is one of the biggest stars on the planet — he was the second highest-paid actor in 2018 — and he recently used his massive fortune to do something incredibly thoughtful: buy his father, Rocky Johnson, a house.

The 46-year-old took to Instagram on Friday, March 1, to tell his fans all about his gesture. “I just got off the phone with my dad and, man, it was a great call and I just had to share this with you guys really quickly,” the former wrestler stated in the video clip. “So about two, three weeks ago I called my dad and I said, ‘Look, you’re probably happy where you’re at 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.”

Dwayne continued, “He couldn’t believe it, he was speechless. So he just called me now. It’s a big weekend, he’s gonna go look at properties. He’s a Florida boy, so he’s going to go up to North Florida and look and he goes, ‘I’m so excited. I’m also so nervous.’ My dad’s an old-school tough guy. I said, ‘What the hell are you nervous about?’ And he said, ‘Well,’ he was searching for words, ‘No one ever called to tell me they were gonna buy me a house before and the fact that it’s you, it’s my son. I’m so proud of you and I love you so much.'”

The Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle star added, “I never heard my dad talk like that. It felt good to me and it felt good to my heart. You know, my dad used to beat my ass, tough love, and I hated it back then but I’m so grateful for it now. It just felt good to kind of give back to the ones who raised you, so love you too, Pop.”

Dwayne also said that the tough love he received from his father, 74, “shaped my DNA and helped inform how I raise my own babies (minus the ass kickings;) but always instilling the value of hard work and discipline.” The Rock has three daughters — Simone, 17, Jasmine, 3, and Tiana, 10 months.

This isn’t the first time that Dwayne has offered to buy his folks a home, as just a couple of months ago he bought his mom, Ata, a new house. “This one felt good,” he captioned the video showing his mother elated at the news.
