This American born actor, rapper, and producer celebrates the big 4-0 today!

In the past Mark Wahlberg has been seen in The Perfect Storm, I Heart Huckabees, and The Fighter. He is also the executive producer for smash HBO hits Entourage and Boardwalk Empire. But his number one job is to be a dad to his four kiddies all under the age of 8! That’s right, four. Even with all his movie stardom success, Mark, a practicing Roman Catholic, keeps has a very close-knit family. He has four kids, Ella Rae, 7, Michael Robert, 5, Brendan Joseph, 2, and Grace Margaret, 1, with wife and long-time lover, model Rhea Durham.

“I’m much more concerned with being a good dad and being there for them and teaching them – and hopefully helping them avoid some of the mistakes that I’ve made,” he explained to about putting fatherhood before his career.

We wish you all the best as you celebrate the big 4-0!
