In meeting her parents Esperanza and Edwin, the actor learned that Moana was one of Lily’s favorite movies. As she watched the Disney film with her father she would often tell her him, ‘daddy you’re my Maui.’

In spite of his tough guy persona, the Rock has a soft heart and often participates in granting wishes as part of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

‘Some stuff in life, I don’t quite understand — so somewhere along the line I got lucky and blessed to be put in this position,’ he wrote of his experience meeting 21 young people through the organization earlier this year.
