We already knew Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is one of the sweetest tough guys in Hollywood after that heartbreaking tribute to his puppy last year (which he'd rescued from the bottom of a pool just weeks before) -- but he's squashed all lingering doubt with his latest sweet gesture.
People reports that the movie star, who is shooting the Baywatch remake in Georgia, invited a 7-year-old battling stage four cancer to visit him on set. Johnson extended the officer after Gabriel Singleton sent a request via Facebook to meet the star through a children's hospital.
In a photo, Singleton holds a sign that read, "I think you are strong, but I am very strong too. I've been struck by hundreds of needles, have had TONS of shots, gone through 8 surgeries, too many blood and platelet transfusions, lots and lots of chemo treatments, radiation therapy, tests, scans and 2 stem cell transplants."
Tater! Guess what buddy? I'm coming to meet you!! I want you to be my special guest on our #BAYWATCH set in Savannah, GA. Everyone on set is excited to meet you... especially the pretty girls! Uh oh😉👊🏾. Tater, not only am I super pumped to meet you, but I'm a big bald headed LUCKY DUDE to meet you as well. Big man you're way stronger than I'll ever be and you better get ready, because I hug like a bear! Can't wait to meet you Tater and your family big man! Stay strong! Your buddy ~ DJ PS: Your nickname "Tater" is almost as cool as "Rock". Actually it's way cooler. 👊🏾💯
In his acceptance of the request, Johnson wrote Wednesday he's "super pumped" to meet the tyke, adding "'I'm a big, bald-headed LUCKY DUDE to meet you as well."
Are we crying yet? Good job Rock!
