When Mother's Day comes around, many adored celebrities share inspirational pictures and happy stories about their mums.
This year, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson topped them all by revealing a private conversation with his mother on Instagram, talking about how happy she is to have him.
The post shows his mum holding a tissue and blowing her nose after getting teary, after they discuss how hard it was for her bringing him up.
Cool Mother's Day story.. early am flight and I'm sittin' across from my mom when out of the blue she looks around the plane, then looks at me and says "Son, I can't believe the life I have.. grandma and grandpa would be so proud." I asked her, "Are you happy ma?". Just then the flight attendant placed my moms breakfast down on the table and my mom said to me, "Am I happy?.. I used to worry about how I was going to buy groceries for us and now I just had my breakfast placed down in front of me". She bursts into tears and says "Yes, son I couldn't be happier". This is the woman who when I was 14yrs old we were evicted out of our apartment in Hawaii 'cause we couldn't afford the $180 per week rent. At this moment Im shaking my head and smiling quietly (as my mom blows her nose;) 'cause she just told me she's happy. And y'all know when our parents tell us they're happy, its so satisfying for us, 'cause it means we've done a good job for them as their kids. Happy Mother's Day to all the deserving amazing mamas out there. And Happy Mother's Day to my amazing mom who will no doubt kill me for posting this crying pic. #EnjoyBreakfastMom #GratefulTears #TryNotCryInTheEggs

"It's so satisfying for us cause it means we've done a good job for them as their kids," he added.
Last year, his mum was involved in a serious car accident with a drunk driver.
At the time, Johnson posted a picture of the wreckage on his Instagram and wrote: "Hug your own family tighter today and be grateful you can tell them you love them."
My mom & cousin @linafanene were struck head on by a drunk driver this week - they lived. First reaction is to find the person who did this and do unrelenting harm to them. But then you realize the most important thing is my family lived thru this and we can hug each other that much tighter these days. Hug your own family tighter today and be grateful you can tell them you love them. #BearHugsAndGratitude #100PercentPreventable #ChoicesMatter
