  • -Dwayne Johnson, thank you so much for coming on our show.

  • I appreciate it so much, man.

  • You know I love you. How are you doing?

  • How is the fam? You look good.

  • -Thank you, man, I'm doing good.

  • I'm doing as good as can be, right,

  • like you and like a lot of us trying to do as well

  • as can be to manage this thing that we are all managing.

  • The family is good, thank God.

  • We were shooting in Georgia when this whole thing went down.

  • So instead of going back to California, I thought,

  • "You know what? Why risk it?

  • Why travel?

  • Let's just stay locked down here.

  • Bring my mom in."

  • And we all just got locked down, the dog included.

  • So we have been down here for months and months.

  • -We love your mom.

  • You know, I brought in the new year with your mom.

  • -Yes.

  • That is an understatement.

  • -[ Laughs ] -You did bring in the new year.

  • So I'm going to tell a little bit of the story.

  • So I get a text from my mom saying,

  • "We're here. Jimmy Fallon's here with his wife."

  • So you guys are eating at a restaurant on New Year's Eve.

  • I am at home with Lauren.

  • My mom and Lauren's mom, they go to eat at this restaurant

  • where you guys were at, you and your lovely wife.

  • "Jimmy Fallon is here with his wife.

  • I'm gonna go say hi."

  • I text back, capital letters, "No!"

  • -[ Laughs ] -"Leave them alone!

  • Don't do it!"

  • She says, "I'm going, that's it."

  • Because she loves you, man.

  • And so, she went up

  • and she introduced herself to you, right?

  • -Your beautiful mom comes over and she goes, "Hello."

  • I go, "Hi," and she goes, "I just got to say, I'm a fan."

  • She goes, "And my son is Dwayne Johnson."

  • I go, "I love Dwayne, too.

  • We love him.

  • I've been friends with him now for --"

  • She's like, "He loves you, too," blah, blah, blah.

  • So we just started talking.

  • I go, "We got to get a picture."

  • She goes, "Oh, I don't want to bother you."

  • I go, "Let's get one."

  • So we get a picture, and it's probably --

  • I want to say 5:30.

  • -Yeah, it's early.

  • -Yeah, in the evening.

  • Early evening.

  • And then, I said, "We got to send him a crazier picture.

  • Hold on." So I went around the restaurant

  • and I found tiaras and balloons. -[ Laughs ]

  • -And we had an empty champagne bottle.

  • And we pretend -- I go, "Let's pretend we're partying.

  • And don't send this to him until like, you know,

  • midnight or 1:00 in the morning or something like that."

  • -[ Laughs ] -So we pretend to be like --

  • we are like, you know, all this stuff.

  • I go, "Oh, it will be great."

  • So then they're just laughing and we're laughing

  • and having so much fun.

  • She is like, "You got it --

  • Jimmy, you've got to see this photo.

  • It's really funny."

  • She said, "I already sent it to Dwayne.

  • I couldn't help myself." I go, "Let me see it."

  • And when I went over, a waiter went over,

  • where we would cross and he knocked over

  • this actual bottle of champagne and ice

  • that someone else had ordered and it went all over the floor

  • and everyone is like, "Oh, sorry."

  • And I go, "No, no, no, get your camera back out.

  • Get your camera." And I move my tie.

  • -Perfect. -I move my tie, open my --

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • I go, "Send this to him at 2:00 in the morning."

  • [ Laughter ]

  • So then, you called and she goes, "Dwayne wants to say hi."

  • So you and your lovely wife paid for our dinner that night.

  • And I appreciate that

  • because that gave us a good New Year's Eve luck.

  • It was actually great. -Aww.

  • -We are going to have a great year.

  • So we love that.

  • That was very kind of you.

  • Thank you very much for that.

  • -I saved them both. It's totally cool.

  • [ Laughter ] -It was just great, man.

  • It was really honestly one of the most memorable New Year's

  • I have had in a long time.

  • And I loved it.

  • -That's awesome, man. -So please give your mom --

  • -Thank you for being so cool and kind to our moms.

  • I mean, that's the ticket, you know what I mean?

  • It's like -- we always got -- whenever --

  • if there is differences, whatever is going on

  • in the world and moms come around,

  • you've always got to take care of the mamas.

  • -Moms come first. How are the girls?

  • I saw there was one Instagram that it looked like

  • it was someone's birthday?

  • Did they have a piñata?

  • -[ Laughs ] Yes, yes.

  • It's baby Tia.

  • She turned two.

  • And Jasmine, who is four, you know,

  • she has a swing of Hank Aaron.

  • It's crazy. And so, we couldn't --

  • I was trying to hang it, hang the piñata by the tree.

  • It was a Peppa Pig piñata.

  • -Yeah. -And she insists, she's like,

  • "No, you hold it, Daddy, you hold it."

  • I'm like, "Okay," and I'm just trying to hold it.

  • My hips are back.

  • So, bang, by the way.

  • I can't have kids anymore, but it's okay.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -Surprisingly, no candy came out.

  • [ Laughter ] -No candy!

  • Just tears from Daddy.

  • [ Laughter ]

  • -Oh, my gosh. -But they are doing good, man.

  • How about you? How's your girls?

  • -They're all great.

  • You know, they're in the other room

  • right now homeschooling so they're not going to run in

  • and interrupt this interview, hopefully.
