Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson opened up about his personal experience with the novel coronavirus. As it turns out, the "Jumanji" star and his "entire family" tested positive for COVID-19.
In a surprising video posted to social media on Wednesday, Dwayne Johnson shared that their entire family of four contracted the novel coronavirus.
Lauren Hashian and Johnson were first romantically linked in 2007, and they share two daughters named Jasmine and Tiana.

In a fairly lengthy video wherein the actor also asked that his fans stay healthy and safe, Johnson opened up about his family's experience with COVID-19. When they tested positive for the virus, it hit Johnson hard, as his first priority had always been the welfare of his loved ones.
Experiencing the disease is unlike anything else their family had to deal with to date, but the actor assured that they are over the worst of the respiratory disease, as he said:
"It was my entire family and it was a kick in the gut. We in a family are good, we're on the other end of it and no longer contagious. Thank God, we're healthy."
Johnson is grateful that his family came through the ordeal "stronger and healthier," but he is aware that other's have not been that lucky. Knowing others who lost loved ones due to the disease, Johnson added:
"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."
THE JOHNSON FAMILY
Apart from the two daughters with Hashian, the actor also has another daughter from his previous marriage to Dany Garcia. In August 2001, Garcia and Johnson welcomed their daughter Simone, but they split up six years later after a decade of marriage.
Hashian and Johnson's daughters are still young, as they welcomed Jasmine in 2015 and Tiana four years later. Eventually, the couple made it down the aisle, and Dwayne Johnson took to social media just last month to celebrate their first wedding anniversary.
The couple said their I do's in Hawaii on August 18 last year, and they celebrated the special day with their two young daughters and those closest to them. As a gift, Hashian surprised her new groom with a romantic song that she sang for him, melting his newlywed heart.
