Davina confessed to regularly tweeting him in a bid to be noticed by her idol, although she went on to insist that she was not looking to steal him from his long-term girlfriend.
Dwayne responded to the comments in a recent interview and now Davina has finally had her wish of a tweet from The Rock granted, with the actor taking to social media last night to send the star well-wishes.
Responding to a clip from This Morning that saw Davina gush about how excited her 11-year-old son, Chester, is that Dwayne might know who she is, the star wrote: “Haha I just saw this story last week. Yes, of course Davina I know who you are, tell your son I said hello and I’m raising a glass of tequila in your honor tonight;) Cheers”.
Clearly in awe, Davina replied: “Can’t quite believe this! Such a huge fan. Chester fell apart when he saw you mentioned him too! Thank you! Keep doing what you’re doing ! We are huge fans!

“P.S. #dwayneforpresident [sic]”.
She also retweeted his message to her own profile, adding: “Holy s*** balls… This just happened” alongside the crying with laughter emoji.
Davina initially made her fangirl revelation in a chat on the podcast Is It Just Me? with former Glamour editor Jo Elvin.
She said at the time: “I think Dwayne Johnson is hardworking, gives more than is expected, funny… I want to meet him but in a sad, fan way. He’s so big, I’d have to climb up his thigh.
“I’m literally sending him messages all the time.
“I have a blue tick next to my name so I’m sort of thinking, ‘Do you think Dwayne Johnson is going to look at his tweets and go, ‘Oh hang on, there’s a blue tick from a British girl, I’m gonna click on her. And oh, she seems like a nice person, I’m going to answer her’?”
Later, Davina was forced to take to Twitter to deny that she was after Dwayne in a romantic way, sharing a headline that said that she wants to “marry” the star and writing: “Funniest story of the year so far ! That I’m secretly messaging @TheRock because I’m newly single! He is v happily married ( I hope) I do think he is fab tho [sic]”.
Last November, Davina confirmed that she and her husband of 17 years, Matthew Robertson, were splitting, however, the pair are thought to be on good terms and have maintained a strong relationship for the sake of their children, 16-year-old Holly, 14-year-old Tilly, and 11-year-old Chester.
