Watch: Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson makes these children's dreams come true

'The Rock' aka Dwayne Johnson has made three children's wishes come true.

Nine-year-old PJ from Ireland, six-year-old Lucy and Cameron, age nine all had the chance to hang out on the set of Hobbs & Shaw.

The group all wished to meet The Rock and the organisations Make-A-Wish Ireland, Rays Of Sunshine and the Starlight Foundation, got together to make it happen.

In a heartwarming video, we see their reactions of pure shock when The Rock surprises them.

The Rock then treats the children to a number of presents, including an X-box gaming gift voucher.

Nine-year-old PJ then chimes in that he doesn't have the console, but Dwayne quickly came to the rescue with custom-made X-boxes for each of them. 

The specialised gifts didn't stop there, as The Rock gave them some of his signature homemade chocolate chip cookies.

After spending the day with PJ, Tanya, PJ's mum said: "This is a chance of a lifetime…He's just so happy."

PJ added that meeting his idol was "just a dream come true.

Cameron's dad explained: "We've had a lot of rough times, so something like this is just amazing."

"It makes up for all the crap we have to deal with, so yeah, just seeing him happy is what it is all about," he added.

Lucy's dad, Stuart said: "It's been amazing, it's quite overwhelming."

Reflecting on the experience, The Rock thanked the children he met and added that he has "the best job in the world."

On Twitter, Make-A-Wish thanked Dwayne for granting PJ's wish.

The Rock responded with: "PJ’s an awesome and special boy. So cool that I got a chance to hang out with him!! Thanks, PJ!"
