Former wrestler and actor, Dwayne Johnson, popularly known as The Rock, has revealed that himself, his wife and their daughters, have tested positive to COVID-19.
The 48-year-old highest paid actor announced this via Instagram, revealing that the members of his family have all been sick with the virus for the past few week.
“I wanted to give you guys a little helpful update on things that have been going on on my end for the past two-and-a-half to three weeks now.
“So the update is this: my wife Lauren as well as my two baby girls and myself, have all tested positive for COVID-19.
“I could tell you that this has been one of the most challenging and difficult things we have ever had to endure as a family, and for me, too, personally as well. And I’ve gone through some doozies in the past.
“Testing positive for COVID-19 is much different than overcoming nasty injuries, or being evicted, or even being broke, which I have been more than a few times”.
He explained that the reason why contracting the virus is different is because his first priority is to always protect his family; his children and loved ones.
Johnson said that he and his family contracted the virus from family friends, who he said are devastated that they unwittingly spread the virus.
“I wish it was only me who tested positive, but it wasn’t, it was my entire family, so this one was a real kick in the gut. But I am happy to tell you guys that we as a family are good. We’re on the other end of it, we’re on the other side. We’re no longer contagious, and we thank God we are healthy”.
He became a huge success in Wrestling before turning to acting, starring in blockbuster movies such as The Scorpion King, Fast & Furious 6 and Jumanji.
The former wrestler reportedly earned $87.5m (£67m) in the year to June, including $23.5m for the Netflix thriller, Red Notice.
