Aside from the birthday celebrations, Rhea recently took to social media to share a sweet photo from her recent vacation with Mark. “One week ago @markwahlberg,” she captioned the beachside photo from January 8. In the selfie, Mark opted to go shirtless and appeared to be wearing swimming trunks. Meanwhile, his leading lady dazzled in a black bikini top and wrapped herself in a blue towel. Rhea also appeared to rock a makeup-free look and had her wet tresses slicked back after seemingly going for a swim.
