WWF super star and Hollywood actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has confirmed he, his wife and two young daughters all tested positive for COVID-19. He made the revelations on Instagram.
“My wife Lauren, as well as my two baby girls and myself – we have all tested positive for COVID-19,” the actor shared in a video. “I can tell you that this has been one of the most challenging and difficult things that we have ever had to endure as a family and for me personally. … And I’ve gone through some doozies in the past.”
Johnson, 48, added that he wishes it was only him who contracted the virus.
“My number one priority is to always protect my family, protect my children, my loved ones,” he said. “So this was a real kick in the gut.”
The action star assured followers that he and his family are “on the other end” of the virus and no longer contagious.
“We got through COVID-19 stronger and healthier,” he said, adding that he has close friends who have lost parents and loved ones to the virus.
According to Johnson, his youngest daughters Jasmine, 4, and Tiana Gia, 2, each had a slight sore throat but “bounced back.” He and his wife Lauren Hashian, however, had a “rough go” with the virus, which he says they caught from close family friends.
The actor offered tips for his fans, should they contract the virus: He recommends having guests undergo a COVID-19 test before visiting your home, staying committed to health and wellness to boost your immune system, and wearing a mask.
“It has nothing to do with politics: Wear your mask,” Johnson added “I am sending you guys so much love and so much mana, and stay healthy, my friends. And thank you for all the love and support.”
