Actor and producer Dwayne Johnson better known as “The Rock,” gave his father a lovely and expensive present for Christmas. The Rock confessed his father was homeless and gave him a brand new car.

 Via his Instagram, the “Moana” star posted a picture along with his dad and a 2016 Ford Jeep as he captioned the photo with a very emotional reflection.  

“Bought my dad a Christmas gift and surprised him. He's had a hard life. This one felt good,” the actor started his long, dedicated caption message on the picture.

Then the actor continued to tell his father's story, as he was homeless at the age of 13.

 “Crazy story, my dad's dad died when he was 13 yrs old. That Christmas, my dad's mom had her new boyfriend over for Christmas dinner. Her boyfriend got drunk and pissed on the turkey. My dad went outside, got a shovel, drew a line in the snow and said if you cross that line I'll kill you. The drunk crossed it and my dad laid him out cold as a block of ice. Cops were called. They told my dad's mom that when her boyfriend regains consciousness, he's gonna kill your son so one of them has got to go. In front of the entire family, my dad's mom looked at him and said get out. He was 13yrs old and now homeless. That f*cked up true story happened in Amherst, Nova Scotia, Canada in 1954. He needed the bare minimum then, just like does now,” he confessed.

The other part of the story is even more emotional, whe he says that: “Over the years, I've moved him into a big home, got him trucks to drive - which he'll literally drive into the ground until I get him something else. Hell, I'll get him anything he wants, but the SOB just won't ask;).”

The former wrestler also reflects that every Christmas, he always think about his father's background and how having every odd stacked against him at 13, he fought through it and still made something of himself. “Makes me appreciate his struggle and hard work. Also, makes me appreciate the fun times he would beat my ass in the gym so bad when I was 13.”

Definitely one of our favorite posts this Christmas, Happy New Year’s to Dwayne and his father, and thanks for sharing this amazing story.
