DWAYNE "The Rock" Johnson revealed that his entire family tested positive for coronavirus in a new video on Instagram on Wednesday.
The 48-year-old actor said that contracting the virus was "a real kick in the gut."
In the clip, Dwayne spoke directly to the camera as he sported a gray zip-up hoodie.
He said: "I wanted to give you guys a little helpful update on some of the things that I've been going through on my end for the past two-and-a-half to three weeks now.
"So the update is this. My wife Lauren, as well as my two baby girls and myself, we have all tested positive for COVID-19 and I can tell you that this has been one of the most challenging and difficult things we have ever had to endure as a family and for me personally, too, as well.
"And I've gone through some doozies in the past. I've gotten knocked about and had my ass kicked in the past with some challenges, but testing positive for COVID-19 is much different than overcoming nasty injuries or being evicted or even being broke, which I have been more than a few times."
"The reason why I feel this is different is because my number one priority is always to protect my family and protect my children- my loved ones."
He added: "I wish it was only me that had tested positive, but it wasn't. It was my entire family, so this one was a real kick in the gut.
"But I am happy to tell you guys that we, as a family, are good. We are on the other end of it. We're on the other side. We are no longer contagious and we are, thank God, we are healthy.
"We've got through COVID-19 stronger and healthier."
Dwayne said that he was "counting my blessings" because "we all have been hit by this thing, whether it is people we know, family we know, loved ones we know, friends we know."
He continued: "We are counting our blessings right now because we're well aware that it isn't always the case that you get on the other end of COVID-19 stronger and healthier.
"I have had some of my best friends lose their parents, their loved ones to this virus that is so incredibly relentless and unforgiving and it is insidious."
He continued the clip by stating that he and his family are "good" and his found one "silver lining" in the situation, which was that both both of his daughters- Jasmine, 4, and Tiana, 2- "had a little sore throat the first couple of days, but other than that they bounced back and it's been life as normal."
The family "isolated" themselves as Dwayne and his wife Lauren Hashian, 35, had "a rough go."
He added: "We got through it as a family. We're stronger, we're better and we did it together."
