Movie star Dwayne The Rock Jonhson and his entire family, including their young daughters, have tested positive for coronavirus.
The actor shared the news on Instagram in a video revealing his wife, Lauren Hashian, and their two daughters, two-year-old Tiana and four-year-old Jasmine, all tested positive.
Dwayne said they were at the end of it and were no longer contagious but this was the most challenging thing they had ever gone through as a family.
"Testing positive for Covid-19 is much different than overcoming nasty injuries or being evicted or broke. The reason why I feel like this is because my number one priority is to always protect my family. I wish it was only me who tested positive.
"It was my entire family and it was a kick in the gut. We in a family are good, we're on the other end of it and no longer contagious. Thank God, we're healthy," he said.
The actor said the babies had a few sore throats but apart from that it was life as normal but he and Lauren had much more difficult times with the virus but got through it.
Dwayne noted they got the virus from close family friends who were devastated that they were the ones who transmitted it to them.
He said they were very disciplined and in lockdown but again felt the need to connect with family which led to the risk. The star added he would follow new severe rules to ensure the family was safe.
"If you guys are having family and friends over to your house, you know them, you trust them. They can be quarantining just like you guys. You still never know. You never know."
