The 48-year-old revealed the news on Wednesday, saying that his wife Lauren Hashian, 35, and their two daughters, Tiana, two, and Jasmine, four, all tested positive for COVID-19, but stated they’re ‘on the other end of it’ and are ‘no longer contagious.’

‘My No. 1 priority is to always protect my family and my loved ones… I wish it was only me that tested positive. It was my entire family and it was a kick in the gut. We in a family are good, we’re on the other end of it and no longer contagious. Thank God, we’re healthy.’

He added: ‘We are counting our blessings right now. We are well aware you don’t always get to the other end of COVID-19 stronger and healthier.’

‘I have had some of my best friends lose their parents to this virus that is so incredibly relentless and unforgiving. We are counting our blessings, but we are good.’

The former wrestler is father to three daughters — 18-year-old Simone, from his previous marriage to ex-wife and business partner Dany Garcia, and girls Jasmine and Tiana, whom he welcomed with wife Lauren in 2015 and 2018, respectively. 

It is not clear if Johnson was referring to Dany and their elder daughter Simone when he said his ‘entire family’ had been struck down with the virus.

Meanwhile, elsewhere in his video message the actor urged fans be extremely cautious when out and about to avoid infection.

 ‘If you guys are having family and friends over to your house, you know them, you trust them. They can be quarantining just like you guys. You still never know. You never know,’ he said, and stipulated that any visitors should be tested the day before meeting. 

He added: ‘Don’t let your guard down, boosts your immunity with antioxidants, vitamins, things of that nature.’
