The father of popular actor and WWE wrestler, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, passed away less than a week ago.
Rocky Johnson was a WWE wrestler and made history as one of the first black tag team champions. He is also the man who trained his son.
Just two days ago, Dwayne shared a beautiful and emotional message to express how he feels after losing his dad, Briefly.co.za reported.
He also shared a video to tell fans that he will be laying his dad to rest on 21 January and discussed the cause of his dad's death.
"I lost him just like that, didn't get a chance to say goodbye to him. I'd give anything right now to give him a big ole hug and a big ole kiss before he crossed over and just say thank you and I love you and I respect you.
"But I didn't get a chance to say that, but such is life, as many of you know. A lot of you guys wanted to know what happened to my dad. He had not been feeling well, had been battling a cold and infection and on Tuesday he had what's called a deep vein thrombosis, which is essentially a clot in the leg.
"It was a big ole blood clot that broke free, travelled up his body, and went right to his lung, clotted his lung and he died very quickly from a massive heart attack, just like that..."
The video that Dwayne shared was also dedicated to him saying thank you to his fans for their support. He also reminded them to love those in their lives who matter to them.
Dwayne opened up about some of the memories of his dad as well. Although he is laughing, the actor is clearly in pain.
