There’s something very special about a mother treating her son. However, there is something even more special about a son treating his mom.

Dwayne Johnson, better known as The Rock, recently made this very special moment happen. The actor surprised his mom, Ata, with a brand new house! As an actor with a net worth of over $10.5 billion worldwide, for some people, this act might seem “meaningless.” However, he says that this particular surprise holds a special meaning for his mother.

“She’s told me over and over these past few years, ‘After a lifetime of traveling, I want this home to be my last. That’s my dream,'” he wrote on his Instagram post.

His mom’s reaction to the surprise says it all. As soon as she walks into this beautiful house, Ata cannot contain her excitement and can be seen trying really hard to hold back the tears.

“When I was a little boy, I hated when my mom would cry,” Johnson wrote. “These days, I’ll happily take her tears of joy.”

According to Johnson, it took him and his design team eight weeks to get the house ready. He then added that she was very emotional when she saw pictures of their ancestors that she hadn’t seen since her childhood in Samoa.

Johnson says that there’s no better feeling than to make our mothers happy, and we cannot agree more!

Watch Ata’s priceless reaction to The Rock’s tender surprise and don’t forget to share with a friend.
