Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has a new nickname this Christmas — "Dw-anta Claus."

The action star took to Instagram on Saturday to share a touching video of his mom, Ata's, reaction to the gift he gave her this holiday: a brand new house.

"This one felt good. Surprise! Bought my mom a new home for Christmas," he began, before explaining that his childhood was full of moving from little apartment to little apartment across the country as his parents tried to make ends meet. "The first home my parents ever lived in was the one I bought for them in 1999. They divorced about 5yrs later and as with life, stuff happens and things got a little complicated. Since then I always made sure my mom and dad have everything they’ll ever need."



"This gift is a special one though and the timing is very meaningful. I told her to treat this card like it’s 'Willy Wonka’s Golden Ticket' because she gets to choose any home she wants - anywhere she wants," Johnson continued. "I always say, if you got a good mama, then you gotta pretty good shot at becoming a decent human being. And somehow, somewhere along the line I became one lucky SOB to be able to make stuff like this happen. Merry Christmas Ma and WOOOHOOO enjoy your new home. Dwanta 🎅🏾."
