Mark says he doesn’t even want to THINK about his older daughter going on a date! He’s such a protective dad!
In the new issue of Men’s Journal, tough guy Mark Wahlberg revealed his greatest fear — his daughter Ella starting to date! “I’m not going to think about that right now,” he said when asked about what he’ll do when the 8-year-old Ella reaches dating age. “When the time comes, I will, but it’s not a good thought for me to have.”
Apparently the topic was off-limits for The Fighter actor. “Thinking about it really stresses me out, so don’t stress me out right now, because that’s a stressful thought, OK?”
But even though raising little Ella is stressful, he’s glad he settled down.
“Yeah, a lot of people I thought were my friends were disappointed that I decided to settle down and don’t take them on whirlwind tours of craziness anymore,” he revealed. “But these days it’s a big, wild Halloween party or Easter egg party. I don’t go out at night anymore. I don’t hang around with the guys. I don’t really play golf. I stopped smoking cigarettes. I stopped smoking pot a lot of years ago, too. I’m focused on my family, my faith, and my work.”
