Watch Jimmy Fallon and The Rock beautifully reunite a military family
Karina Kabalan met her husband Todd while the two were deployed to Iraq. He’s now a U.S. Air Force master sergeant. She’s a producer on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.”
The Dec. 9 episode of Fallon’s show featured Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who has a special appreciation for military veterans and their families.
“If we ever have the opportunity to give back to our troops, I think we all should because we live and enjoy the life we have because of them,” Johnson said on the show.”I would love to give back to a military family that’s actually here in the audience. … This person does not know.”
Johnson then walks to the control room backstage where confused Tonight Show staffer Kabalan asks “What is happening right now?”
The film, television, and WWE star tells Kabalan that he hears she is “the most amazing person” and that he knows she and her husband have been apart for much of 2016. As The Rock describes the situation she and her husband are in, a man in USAF senior enlisted dress blues sneaks up behind her.
Then, The Rock says, “Turn around and hug your husband.”
It’s a big moment for Fallon too, who looks like he’s having trouble holding back tears.
The married couple hug as everyone looks on. Then they pull in Fallon and Johnson for a group hug.
“How could you even do this without me knowing?” Kabalan says to Fallon.
