Dwayne Johnson, the successful actor, and former WWE wrestler nicknamed ‘The Rock,’ received a very special gift on Christmas which made him extremely emotional because it was something about his late father and he shared it on his Instagram account.
Dwayne Johnson’s father, Rocky Johnson, died of a pulmonary embolism caused by a blood clot that traveled from a deep vein thrombosis in his leg earlier this year at the age of 75. He was a Canadian professional wrestler and he taught everything he knew about wrestling to his son Dwayne.
On Thursday, Dwayne Johnson took Instagram to share the meaningful present he got for Christmas. It was a paper weight, but not an ordinary one because it had the picture of the Rock and his dad at the gym. The gift reminded Johnson of the times when they worked out with his father at the gym.
In the caption, Johnson revealed that he was an extremely hard person to buy gifts for, so he loved to receive sentimental gifts like this. One of the biggest things that gave the actor pain, who lost his father in early 2020, was that he did not have the opportunity to say goodbye to his father.
Here’s the caption:
“I’m extremely hard to buy Christmas gifts for, so sentimental gifts like this mean the world to me.
A family friend had this made for me.
A paper weight to keep on my desk of me and my dad at the gym. I was too young to hit the weights back then, but after his workouts he’d always take me on the wrestling mats and beat my little ass. Those days were important.
My old man died suddenly, earlier this year. I never had a chance to say goodbye. Fucking 2020 huh?!
Still a beautiful gift, I’ll cherish.
The followers of Dwayne Johnson also loved the gift and they head to the comments section.
