Los Angeles : Actor Dwayne Johnson has bought a car for his father Rocky Johnson. He took to Instagram on Friday to share a photograph of him, his father and a Subaru, reports dailymail.co.uk.

He expressed his gratitude to his father in a lengthy caption that described some of the sacrifices Rocky has made for his son.

"Bought my dad a Christmas gift and surprised him. He's had a hard life. This one felt good. My dad, Rocky Johnson is a minimalist. Always has been. Never asks me for much and over the years his needs are always the barest," Dwayne wrote.

"Crazy story, my dad's dad died when he was 13 years old. That Christmas, my dad's mom had her new boyfriend over for Christmas dinner. Her boyfriend got drunk and pissed on the turkey. My dad went outside, got a shovel, drew a line in the snow and said if you cross that line I'll kill you. The drunk crossed it and my dad laid him out cold as a block of ice," he added.

The actor further went on and shared: "Cops were called. They told my dad's mom that when her boyfriend regains consciousness, he's gonna kill your son so one of them has got to go. In front of the entire family, my dad's mom looked at him and said get out.

"He was 13 years old and now homeless. That f****d up true story happened in Amherst, Nova Scotia, Canada in 1954. He needed the bare minimum then, just like he does now.

"Just a small way of saying thank you dad and Merry Christmas," he concluded.
