Verified golden boy Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has always been vocal about his humble beginnings, often extolling the virtues of his loving mother who supported the star through thick and thin.

It shouldn't come as a surprise then that come Mother's Day he took to Instagram to relate a heartwarming message in which he detailed a touching moment he and his mom recently shared:

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."

The people's champion reminds us yet again why we love him so much!

Keep being you, Rock!
