Mark Wahlberg Left Hollywood for Quiet Family Life in Nevada — Gets up at 2:30 AM to Spend More Time with Kids

Mark Wahlberg sold his custom-built California mansion and moved to Nevada for the well-being of his family. He’s a big-time actor, but his ultimate goal is to succeed as a father. To prove his devotion to his family, the actor wakes up at 02:30 a.m. to spend more time with his wife and kids.
Mark Wahlberg is one of the biggest names in Hollywood and one of the few actors who could transition from music to acting. Wahlberg started his career as a rapper and swiftly moved to the acting scene, where he showed his versatility through action films like “Transformers” and comedies like “Ted.”

Before he gained massive success, the “Ted” star had a tough childhood. He struggled with drug addiction at 14 and was in jail at 16.
All that trauma he experienced as a child bled into his adult life, but the actor credits his wife, former Victoria’s Secret model Rhea Durham, for making him the man he is today.

The couple met in New York in 2001, and Wahlberg took her to St Patrick’s Cathedral for their first date. They welcomed their first two children, Ella and Michael, in 2003 and tied the knot in a Catholic ceremony in Beverly Hills in 2009.
The “Planet of the Apes” star has been honest about Durham’s positive impact on his life. He admits feeling genuine love from her, which allows him to let his guard down and trust her.

Before meeting his model wife, Wahlberg said he was not ready to start a family because he feared his childhood trauma would affect how he raised his children, but something about Durham told him that they would have a long life together.
His certainty about her allowed him to imagine a stable life with a wife and children. The actor said Durham worked hard but truly wanted to be a wife and mother.

Wahlberg and his wife share the same values, which have kept them together and will continue to do so. It was also a pivotal reason for them to start a family together. The couple has been married for 15 years and has four children, Brendan, Grace, Ella, and Michael.
