Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson had fans in tears as he shared a touching video of the moment he gave his cousin a stunning new house.

“We love you so much cuz, so proud of you,” he said.

“Welcome to your new home!” he exclaimed, as he removed his hands to reveal his surprise.

Pro wrestler Sarona seemed shocked and broke down in tears as she hugged the Hollywood star and started to look around her new pad.

The camera then panned around to show off a modern kitchen and a wall covered in framed family photos.

The Rock wrote in the caption: “Hard to explain these emotions for all of us as I led @saronasnukawwe thru her new door. This one felt good.

“Surprise cuz - enjoy your new home!!”

He went on: “I’ve known my cousin Sarona since we were little kids growing up together. Man this girl’s gone thru some tough times, but regardless of what life’s thrown her way - she was ALWAYS determined to break the cycle and become a strong and inspiring single mom example to her two greatest inspirations — her daughters, Milaneta & Maleata.

“It’s so damn hard to make it as a pro wrestler. And it’s even way harder to make it if you’re a woman.

“Sarona (like many amazing women in pro wrestling) made her mind up long ago that she was gonna walk the walk and earn her respect in pro wrestling and make sure that the hard times she’s experienced were always her REASON to WORK HARDER and never let it become the EXCUSE to GIVE UP.

“And that’s what she did.”

“And that’s why my heart’s proud,” added the 50-year-old, who also bought a house for his mum this year.

“Love you cuz and we always got your back,” he said.
