Mark Wahlberg’s Enduring Relationship with Rhea Durham
Donnie Wahlberg isn’t the only Wahlberg brother to find his soulmate. Mark Wahlberg, his younger brother, began dating model Rhea Durham back in 2001. Though the couple might not have adhered to traditional relationship rules, their love has thrived throughout the years. In 2003, Mark and Rhea welcomed their first child, daughter Ella Rae. They went on to have three more children, sons Michael and Brenden in 2006 and 2008, and a daughter, Grace, in 2010. Despite raising a family together, the couple didn’t make it official until they tied the knot in 2009.
Mark and Rhea tied the knot in an intimate and romantic ceremony in a Catholic church in Beverly Hills. The couple exchanged vows in the company of only their children and a select few family members. Mark adorned a dark suit, while Rhea wore a stunning strapless dress with silver embroidery. “She looked like a princess and beyond stunning. Mark looked ecstatic,” an eyewitness revealed to People magazine at the time. It was a beautiful moment for the couple, and it was evident how much they truly loved and valued each other.
Mark Wahlberg has attributed much of his success to his wife, Rhea Durham. He told The Sun in 2008, “I owe a lot to my wife. She has helped me become the man that I am and created a beautiful life for our children and me.” Mark also emphasized the importance of being with the right woman, especially when raising children. “You need the right woman in your life and that feeling that you’re going to be together for a long time. That’s especially important if you’re going to have children.”
Mark might be tattoo-free today, but this wasn’t always the case. In fact, the Lone Survivor star used to have multiple tattoos that covered his entire body. He revealed to James Corden that he had around eight or nine tattoos, which spanned across his arms, neck, stomach, back, and leg. Mark knew he wanted to remove his tattoos before filming his 2010 movie, The Fighter. However, dermatologists had doubts about the possibility of getting them removed. Nevertheless, the determined actor managed to complete a five-year tattoo removal process in just seven months. The process was no doubt painful, but Mark’s commitment to improving his image was unwavering.
It’s no secret that Mark is a fitness enthusiast. He even has his own pre-workout supplement and a personal gym in an airplane hangar, complete with a boxing ring, state-of-the-art equipment, and sound system. To maintain his physique, Mark follows a grueling schedule that he shared with his social media followers. He starts his day at an incredulous 2:30 a.m., takes an hour and a half shower, and completes multiple workouts. It’s a schedule that’s not for the faint-hearted, but Mark’s commitment to living a healthy lifestyle is admirable.
Fans of the reality series “Wahlburgers” got to meet the mastermind behind the operation – Paul Wahlberg. As the fifth of nine children, Paul always harbored the desire to become a chef, which he pursued wholeheartedly.
He trained in many renowned restaurants, including The Charles Hotel and Bridgman’s, where he held the position of Executive Chef for nine years. The reality series, which aired for ten seasons, didn’t phase Paul. In fact, he didn’t understand all the attention. In 2019, he said, “I think I’m as dull as dull comes. I don’t know how it makes for quality television.” Nonetheless, Paul’s devotion and expertise in the culinary field are evident in “Wahlburgers” and his highly successful restaurants.
Tracey Wahlberg is a person who prefers to stay out of the limelight. Despite being well-known in her community for her philanthropic work and activism, Tracey remains humble and grounded. She prefers to let her deeds speak for themselves, rather than seeking attention or recognition. As a caption to this Instagram post, Donnie wrote, “My sister – what an amazing human being she is. She stays out of the ‘spotlight’, and may give me an eye roll for posting this, but she shines brighter than any star in the sky.”
The Other Wahlberg Siblings Living Out of the Spotlight
While the reality series “Wahlburgers” gave fans an insight into the lives of the three Wahlberg brothers, there are still other siblings who prefer to live out of the limelight. Arthur, who is Alma’s third child and first son, made a few film appearances in movies such as “10” and “Patriots Day.” However, he now spends his days remodeling homes. Then there’s James, who was born a year after Paul. Unlike the rest of his siblings, James has stayed away from the entertainment industry. Instead, he serves as the Executive Director for Mark’s charity, the Youth Foundation.
Though they might not be as well-known as their celebrity siblings, Arthur and James show that there’s more to life than the spotlight. They have found success in their respective fields and continue to make their own unique contributions to society.
