Dwayne Johnson may come across as all business to some, particularly in light of his feuds with Fast 8 co-star Vin Diesel, but nothing could be further from the truth. Dwayne, who first earned his reputation as hard pounding wrestler “The Rock,” has proven that he also has a great sense of humor and a big heart, especially as the holidays influence him to be even more generous. When he’s not taunting long time girlfriend Lauren Hashian about his Sexiest Man Alive title, Johnson is off making dreams come true. To attest to his warm heart, one military couple is not likely to ever forget him.

E! News reports that Dwayne Johnson made an appearance on The Tonight Show on Friday, but, instead of settling in for the standard Q&A interview with host Jimmy Fallon, the two celebrities took off to make some special holiday memories. Fallon and Johnson wanted to give The Tonight Show producer, Karina Kabalan, a very special Christmas memory by bringing her back together with husband, Todd, who serves as a master sergeant in the U.S. Air Force.
Starting out the heartwarming event, Dwayne spoke about his deep appreciation for all that the U.S. armed forces does for the people of America, adding that he felt regular citizens should give back to military personnel whenever possible. Always one to back up his words with action, Mr. Johnson went on to reveal that he was appearing on The Tonight Show, so he could give back to one military family in particular.
It was at this point that both Dwayne Johnson and Jimmy Fallen walked past the audience and approached the show’s production booth, where Karina was seated.
“You guys have been living apart for the past year and a half because he is 5,000 miles away,” Johnson told Karina, who also served a tour in the Army. “We wanted to thank you and your husband for your service and your sacrifice and I personally heard you are the most amazing person and we wanted to bring your husband home for you for the holidays.”
It was then that Dwayne instructed Kabalan to turn around for her holiday surprise.
Ms. Kabalan’s overwhelmed reaction can be seen in the video below:
Dwayne Johnson Milks His Sexiest Man Alive Title At Home
Making the BILLBOARD HOT 100 as a singer is a first for me. Very cool. THANK YOU Billboard & fans for the congratulations luv. Huge shout out to my ace and musical genius Lin Manuel Miranda for writing this song that's been so dope and fun to sing. And thank you Jesus for blessing me with the voice that's been described as warm honey coated gravel on a sexy country day. Admittedly, the woman who referred to my voice as such was very intoxicated, but that's our sexy business #BillboardHot100 #YoureWelcome #Moana
In November, People named Dwayne Johnson their Sexiest Man Alive, and as Entertainment Weekly reports, the Baywatch actor is still flaunting his “sweet, smart, and sculpted” physique at home, driving girlfriend Lauren Hashian crazy with frustration. Johnson says the new title has completely transformed how he and Hashian communicate with one another.
“Now I don’t even have to speak in full sentences,” said the Baywatch actor.
As Fallon played the part of Lauren Hashian in asking Dwayne how he slept, Johnson just winks, shoots a finger gun.
“Hey, hey,” is all Mr. Johnson says in response.
Certainly Johnson is proud of his Sexiest Man Alive title and wants to cling onto it for as long as he can, but Fallon, seeming just slightly perturbed, asked Dwayne if he could think of anything he does which might seem “unsexy” and bring down the actor’s pride just a notch. After giving it some thought, Mr. Johnson replied that the only thing to come to mind is his habit of making breakfast in bed for Lauren.
“That’s not unsexy, right? Unsexy!” responded Fallon.
Dwayne Johnson has two potential blockbusters set to hit theaters.
On April 14, 2017, The Fate of the Furious, formerly known as Fast 8, starring Johnson and Vin Diesel, will premiere in theaters.
Baywatch, also starring Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, and Priyanka Chopra, will hit theaters on May 19, 2017.
