Dwayne Johnson said the news he and his family had COVID-19 was a 'real kick in the gut'.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, 48, revealed this week that he, his wife Lauren and his two young daughters tested positive for coronavirus.

The actor shared a video on his Instagram page on Wednesday, where he told his fans that this was "one of the most challenging and difficult things we have ever had to endure as a family".

Dwayne's entire family was hit with the virus, including his wife Lauren Hashian, 35, and his two daughters – two-year-old Tiana and four-year-old Jasmine.

Starting off the video, The Rock said: "I wanted to give you guys a little helpful update on some of the things that I've been going through on my end for the past two-and-a-half to three weeks now."

He continued: "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 and I can 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 personally, too, as well.

"And I've gone through some doozies in the past. I've gotten knocked about and had my ass kicked in the past with some challenges, but 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 went on to say that this was "different" because his number one priority is "always to protect" his family and children.

He said: "I wish it was only me that had tested positive, but it wasn't. It was my entire family, so this one was a real kick in the gut."

However, Dwayne went on to say that his family are "good" at "on the other end" of the virus.

He told his fans: "We are no longer contagious and we are, thank God, we are healthy."
