Pro-wrestler turned Hollywood actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson said in a video message posted on social media Wednesday that he, his wife and their two young children tested positive for COVID-19 in recent weeks but that they all have recovered and are healthy.
Johnson, 48, said in the Instagram post that he and his spouse, Lauren, 35, and their daughters, Jasmine, 4, and Tiana, 2, caught the coronavirus about two and a half weeks ago — despite being “disciplined” about avoiding infection — from “very close family friends” whom he said had no idea how they had become infected.
“This has been one of the most challenging and difficult things we have ever had to endure as a family,” he said in the video filmed at his home.

“I’ve gone through some doozies in the past, I’ve gotten knocked around and gotten 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.”
