Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Meets a 1-Year-Old “Heart Warrior” on the Baywatch set
From visiting children’s hospitals to inviting sick fans to the set, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has one big heart, and his latest post is yet another example. The Baywatch star is on-location in Savannah, Ga., and heard that a fan asked for him to meet her sick 1-year-old daughter. The megastar happily obliged, and posted this sweet photo from the encounter.
“Was so happy to have met lil’ Sally Walker Colins, who just turned 1,” he wrote on Instagram. “When she was 5months old she had open heart surgery and has been an inspiring lil’ fighter since that day.”
“Her mama, Sarah here was so grateful we had a chance to meet and got teary eyed when talking about her baby and said something so simple, powerful and true.. ‘If Sally can fight thru this, then we can do anything.’ Amen. Yes you can,” he wrote.
The actor joked that his sunglasses were handy in helping to hide his tears. “You’re a heart warrior and you have many many more birthdays to enjoy,” he said to the tot.
The Rock may look tough, but he’s a softy at heart.
