If you love hip hop, pop or blue-eyed soul then you might know Mark Wahlberg. However, if you are a lover of blockbuster action movies then you definitely know the man. Apart from the screen, the singer cum actor also has a personal life which as his fan, you should know and appreciate just like his professional life. Who are the most important people in his life?
You are probably wondering why we are boring you with such information. Well, if you claim to be Mark’s fan who loves his movies and songs then you might embarrass yourself in front of other fans if you cannot answer simple questions regarding Mark Wahlberg’s relatives including siblings, family and kids. In this post, we will save you from that possible embarrassment by informing you adequately about these important people in his life.
Mark Wahlberg’s siblings
Mark has so many siblings that most of his loyal fans can’t often identify one from the other. This is perfectly understandable because the actor has a mixed and very complex family tree thanks to his mother. The actor has eight older siblings named Arthur, James, Debbie, Michelle, Paul, Tracey, Robert and Donnie Wahlberg. The latter two plus Mark are from the third marriage of his mother to Donald Wahlberg.
Additionally, the former pop idol has three half-siblings from his father’s side. These are two brothers and a sister named Scott, Buddy and Donna. It is hard to imagine but, for Mark’s mother, having nine children is more like a hobby than the need to have a family. She actually had passion for children and managed to raise all her nine children to adulthood with only one succumbing when she had hit the adult age. Being a nursing aid, the unique woman must have known some secret to nursing and bringing up children.
Most of the actor’s siblings are talented in singing and acting with Mark leading the pack in popularity. Donnie Wahlberg is also successful in his entertainment career well known for a number of hit movies. Robert too is quite successful in the acting industry but he is not a singer. As a matter of fact there are films featuring the brothers as the main actors. For this reason, the family is considered among the likes of the Kardashians.
