Dwayne Johnson is counting his blessings after revealing every member of his immediate family is on the road to recovery following positive COVID-19 tests.
In a new video message, the Jumanji: The Next Level star shared that his wife Lauren, and their daughters, Jasmine and Tiana, are battling the coronavirus, adding the diagnoses are among “the most challenging and difficult” things he’s ever had to deal with.
“Testing positive for COVID-19 is a lot different than recovering from nasty injuries, getting evicted or being broke, which I’ve been more than a few times,” he said. “My number one priority is to always protect my family and my loved ones… I wish it was only me that tested positive.
“It was my entire family and it was a kick in the gut.”
But he admits there’s light at the end of the tunnel, adding, “We’re on the other end of it and no longer contagious. Thank God, we’re healthy.
“We are counting our blessings right now. We are well aware you don’t always get to the other end of COVID-19 stronger and healthier. I have had some of my best friends lose their parents to this virus that is so incredibly relentless and unforgiving. We are counting our blessings, but we are good.”
Dwayne ended the video message by urging fans and followers to always wear a mask when out in public and limit the amount of people at social gatherings.
He’s not the only Hollywood star who has tested positive for COVID-19 – Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson were the first back in March, and Idris Elba, Kevin Hart, Antonio Banderas, Lena Dunham, Bryan Cranston, and Mel Gibson have all battled the deadly virus, which has claimed the lives of almost 860,000 people around the world.
