Mark Wahlberg is an American actor, TV producer, model, and former rapper who has a net worth of $300 million.

The American actor was born on June 5, 1971, to a bank clerk, Alma Elaine, and delivery driver, Donald Wahlberg. His mom, who is from an Irish, French-Canadian family, also worked as a nurse assistant. She also has an English background while his dad was of Swedish and Irish origin. He has 8 siblings (including actor-singer Donnie and actor Robert) with him being the last of his parents. As a child, Mark grew up in Dorchester, Boston. His parents later separated in 1982.

Marky started life on a different path by many standards. The last of 9 kids, Mark had frequent run-ins with the law as a child. He got a 45-day jail term for robbing a pharmacy and dropped out of school at age 16. The good news is that he took a turn for the better. He did several jobs before joining his brother Donnie‘s music band, ‘New Kids on the Block’.

Mark later formed the ‘Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch’ band in 1991. His single, ‘Good Vibrations’ became number 1 on the Billboard 100. It later became platinum. He had less success with his second album. In 1992, he became a model for Calvin Klein underwear. Following the footsteps of Ice Cube and Will Smith, Marky was able to transit from music to film.

His film career began with “The Substitute’ in 1993. He has taken roles in movies like ‘The Basketball Series’ and ‘Boogie Nights’. He won the Academy Award in 2006 and was nominated for the Golden Globe Awards.

Meet Mark Wahlberg Wife (Rhea Durham) and Kids

You will be right to say that the two-time Oscar nominee, Mark tried to go the path of his parents who separated at an early age. Despite his achievements, the star seems modest in terms of his relationship with women. He has repeatedly proven that he is not the kind that will land into Hollywood infidelity and love dramas. This is because we have known Mark with just one woman, Rhea Durham – a successful model.

Through her modelling career, Rhea has appeared on the cover of several fashion magazines, including American and British Elle, French Vogue, and Marie Claire, among others. She also participated in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show held in 2000 and 2001, respectively. She has equally made a few guest appearances in movies and TV shows.

The pair began their relationship in 2001 and dated for about eight years before finally tying the knot in 2009. Their wedding ceremony took place in a private ceremony held in Beverly Hills, California. For a union that has lasted for over a decade and still counting, Mark Wahlberg and his wife, Rhea, are now parents to four amazing children, namely – Ella Rae, Michael, Brendan, and Grace.

They welcomed their first daughter, Elle Rae, in 2003. Three years later, in 2006, their first son, Michael, was born. In 2008, the actor and his brunette wife welcomed their third child named Brendan. It is important to note that the couple didn’t walk down the aisle until 2009, after the birth of Brendan. The following year 2010, they welcomed their fourth child and second daughter, Grace.

Recently, Rhea launched a handbag and accessories label, and it’s called Ella Grace after her two daughters. The former model disclosed that it was quite a very interesting journey for her, especially knowing it is hard to stay on top of fashion trends, so she decided to build a collection of quality and incredible style for herself and her family.
