Are you a mom? Do you identify with Mark and his wife wife Rhea, who look at a hospital stay as a” vacation”?
“It was the first time we had a couple of days of peace and quiet even though she [wife, Rhea Durham] had to go through the pain of giving birth,” Mark Wahlberg tells Ellen Degeneres in an interview that airs today on her show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Marky Mark, it’s so cute that you look at the birth of your fourth child, daughter Grace, as “vacation time.” We sure bet after three children — Ella, 6, Michael who is about to turn 4, and Brendan, 16 months — a trip to the hospital to have a fourth was a walk in the park, especially when it meant that you got to spend some alone time with Rhea. And, we agree with you — the hospital room, “it’s [definitely] like a hotel room.”
“She had a TV. I could watch my TV at the same time,” Mark said. That must be nice to both be able to watch your own programs without the distraction of your kids running around and screaming. You both need some R&R, even if the only time you two can find to do so is by having another baby. It is a “vacation” of sorts. Mark confessed to Ellen.
Not that Mark is really complaining – he’s one of nine kids himself- and told Ellen” my wife has always wanted four, two boys and two girls, so miraculously she got everything she wanted.”
Well we couldn’t be happier for you Mark and Rhea!
