Dwayne Johnson Tests Positive for COVID-19: "A Real Kick In The Gut"

His wife and their two kids are infected as well.

Dwayne Johnson and his family have tested positive for COVID-19.

The Rock, 48, made the announcement on Instagram on Wednesday (Sept 2). He and his wife, Lauren, and their daughters, Jasmine, four, and Tiana, 2, all have contracted the virus.

In the video message, Johnson said, "I wanted to give you guys a little helpful update on things that have been going on on my end for the past two-and-a-half to three weeks now. So the update is this: my wife Lauren as well as my two baby girls and myself, we have all tested positive for COVID-19.”

He added, "I could tell you that this has been one of the most challenging and difficult things we have ever had to endure as a family, and for me, too, personally as well. And I've gone through some doozies in the past.”

"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," he said.

Johnson said that he and his family contracted COVID-19 from family friends.

He continued, "I wish it was only me who tested positive, but it wasn't, it was my entire family, so this one was a real kick in the gut. But I am happy to tell you guys that we as a family are good. We're on the other end of it, we're on the other side. We're no longer contagious, and we are — thank God — we are healthy. We've gotten through COVID-19 stronger and healthier.”
