In an interview with Parade, Lone Survivor actor Mark Wahlberg, 42, opens up about his faith an family life with wife Rhea Durham and their four children: Ella, 10, Michael, 7, Brendan, 5, and Grace, 3.
On how he spends Sundays: “If the kids are good, I’ll have doughnuts for them at 6:30 in the morning, and I’ll say, ‘You guys gotta let Mommy sleep in!’ I’ll go to church at 7:30 and everybody will be eating breakfast when I come home. Then we’ll go to church again at 10:30, if things aren’t too hectic. Or if one of the kids has a game we’ll watch them play. It’s a nice family day.”
On faith: “It’s the most important part of my life. I don’t try to push it on anybody and I don’t try to hide it.”
On father-son time: “My sons and I thoroughly enjoy Legos. We go to the toy store every week for more. I never want to take what we build apart; I want to put it on a shelf. My wife is starting to get a little annoyed with the Legos lying around.”
On who’s in his entourage now: “My wife, the kids, and a wonderful nanny. When I’m filming, all the guys are with me; but if I’m not at work, I’m with my family.”
