“This one felt good,” he wrote on the social media site. “All our lives growing up, we lived in little apartments all across the country. Lived like gypsies on the road from one state to another. The first home my parents ever lived in was the one I bought for them in 1999.”

He added that his parents got divorced five years later, and things began to get complicated.

“Since then, I always made sure my mom and dad have everything they’ll ever need — houses, cars etc.,” he continued. “But the house this time is a special one, and the timing is very meaningful.”

In the video, Johnson’s mother is seen opening a Christmas card. The Skyscraper star added that he wanted his mother to treat his card like Willy Wonka’s golden ticket, meaning she could pick any home she wanted anywhere she wanted.

“I always say if you got a good mama then you got a pretty good shot at becoming a decent human being,” he said.
