• Dwayne Johnson celebrated wife Lauren Hashian's birthday with a heartfelt post 
  • This comes a week after he revealed that he and his family contracted coronavirus
  • He believes they got COVID-19 from close friends 

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson expressed his gratitude for his wife, Lauren Hashian, on her 36th birthday after their family of four contracted and recovered from COVID-19.

Days after revealing that his entire family tested positive for the coronavirus, Johnson paid tribute to his wife as she turned a year older in an Instagram post with a black-and-white snap of them wearing matching face masks.

“‘She was a fast machine, she kept her motor clean – she was the best damn woman that I ever seen,’” Johnson captioned the photo posted on Wednesday, Sept. 9, referencing “You Shook Me All Night Long” by AC/DC.

In his sweet message, the “Fast & Furious” star credited Hashian for being the pillar of their family.

“HAPPIEST OF BIRTHDAYS to my one of a kind woman @laurenhashianofficial who holds it all down and makes our ‘big engine’ run – with a beautiful and inspiring quality, a sweet harmony & a lotta love. I’m a grateful man. Happy Birthday, baby and tequila’s on me #f22,” Johnson wrote.

This came a week after Johnson revealed in a video on Instagram that he, Hashian and their two daughters, Jasmine, 4, and Tiana, 2, had tested positive for the coronavirus. He described the difficult moment as “a kick in the gut.”

“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 “Jumanji” star added.

At the time, Johnson revealed that they were out of the woods and were not contagious anymore. The former WWE superstar suspected that they caught the coronavirus from “very close family friends” who didn’t know that they were infected.

The ordeal, which he described as “one of the most challenging things” that they went through as a family, served as a lesson for Johnson, who said that they will exercise “even greater discipline” by asking visitors to get tested first before coming over.

Contracting the coronavirus had been a big blow to Johnson especially as his “no. 1 priority is to always protect my family. And protect my children, my loved ones.”

“I wish it was only me who tested positive but it wasn’t,” Johnson said. “It was my entire family. So this one is really a kick in the gut.”
