In June, The Rock surprised his cousin Tamina Snuka with a new house.

The Rock praised her work ethic in life and as a wrestler, but most importantly, praised her for being a mother to two daughters. In the video, The Rock has Tamina's eyes covered as he walks her into her new home, before uncovering her eyes and delivering his surprise.

Speaking to Ryan Satin on Out of Character, Tamina reflected on the surprise.

"I was standing outside on the driveway and he wouldn't let me come in, he was like, 'Wait.' I said 'Okay.' He drove me up to the house, I came up to the driveway, he walks out and that's how this happened. He said 'come on in' and he covered my eyes. That's when you see it, exactly like that," she said.

When asked if she was expecting the house and for it to be furnished, Tamina replied, "Not in the sense in that, the way he was setting this up, I didn't know he was going to do it like this. I'd be like, 'Hey, here you go, here's your house.' Hell yeah, I'd go in, do the whole get the Chinese food, sit on the floor, sleep on the sleeping bag. I'm down with that, I would have been happy in an empty house. I'll get my furniture and slowly move in. I was hopping from place to place to place all the time. Everything I have, it goes to my kids. You work hard for your kids and family. 'Let me get this Louis Vuitton purse,' No, you have bills to pay."

Speaking about the kindness of The Rock, Tamina said, "That's just his heart. Dwayne has always been that way. Ever since we've been young, this is all I've known him to be. he's always been that long, giving person, and not a lot of people get to see that side of him. This man has done above and beyond for me, more than I can even imagine. That's my brother. I love that man."

Tamina is currently part of WWE Raw and recently competed in the Last Chance Money In The Bank Qualifying Six Pack Elimination match on the June 27 episode of Raw.

The Rock is currently gearing up for the release of DC League of Super-Pets, which hits theaters on July 19.
