WATCH: Make-A-Wish foundation makes 9-year-old Kildare boy’s dream of meeting The Rock come true

Once again Dwayne Johnson proves to be a total legend.

Make-A-Wish Ireland do some fantastic work, having made the wishes of over 2,000 sick children come true since the year 2000.

Their most-recent wish-making involved none other than Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who greeted three young children on the set of his upcoming action epic Fast & Furious: Hobbs And Show.

Among the kids was 9-year-old PJ from Kildare, who is living with Ewing’s sarcoma.

PJ and his two new pals were brought to the UK to visit the set of the new movie, but while they all seemed to think that it might actually just be a fun day out playing video games and checking out cool cars, the best was yet to come…

Yep, The Rock himself showed and made everyone’s day, week, month, and year that bit better.

On top of joining them to sing some of the songs from his Disney movie Moana, bringing out his Hobbs & Shaw co-star Jason Statham to meet everyone, he also gives them all a huge Christmassy goodie bag, and PJ’s face when he sees what the BIG present is? We’re getting emotional again just thinking about it.
