Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's Gift To His Dad Post-Hip Surgery Is A Brand New Cadillac

Close

Dwayne Johnson surprises his father with a brand-new wheel on Monday after the old man's hip replacement surgery.

The 45-year-old Jurassic World actor posted on Instagram a snapshot of his father posing on the hood of the brand-new black Cadillac SUV. The Rock said his father called him up to say that the doctor advised a bigger wheel due to his hip rehab.

"I said, 'Say no more ... I got you ... just go down and pick out what you want' then we hung up and hours later I get this pic. Lol," The Rock captioned the photo.

Johnson also took the time to thank his dad, Rocky Johnson, for toughening him up as a child because it made him who he is today. He told his 102 million-strong followers on the photo-sharing app that his father used to kick him on the side of the gym to the other.

It turns out that The Rock is generous toward his family members. In 2015, it was reported that the Baywatch star bought his uncle a new truck as a Christmas present.

Doting Father

Johnson's care for his relatives is evident in his own family. While the actor is known to post videos of his gym activities, he never missed out on sharing stories of fatherhood.

Recently, The Rock posted a video of him and his daughter Jasmine a few days after the little one was rushed to the emergency room. The Jumanji star did not provide details of his daughter's condition, although Jasmine appeared well and healthy in the photo.

Jasmine is The Rock's daughter with his current girlfriend, Lauren Hashian. In December last year, the couple announced they are expecting baby number 2. Johnson had a 16-year-old daughter, Simone Alexandra, from his past relationship.

Not Just Another Film

In other news, Johnson's Rampage movie is getting mixed feedback from fans and critics. The actor revealed he was careful in his approach to the film especially that it is a live-action adaptation of a video game of the same name.

There are several pitches to the story that director Brad Peyton had to completely disregard. One of this is the suggestion that Johnson will transform into a giant monster.

"Let's just say I said no to Rock-zilla. It was presented in a room much like this, and I was like, 'That's a hard pass for me.' That sounds really not grounded at all," Peyton said.
