On-screen Mark Wahlberg raised three adopted kids in “Instant Family.” Off-screen, Mark is a devoted family man, husband, and father of four.
“Extra’s” Renee Bargh caught up with Wahlberg, who was joined by writer and director Sean Anders as they promoted the film’s Blu-ray and DVD release. During their chat, he opened up about whether he and wife Rhea Durham want more kids, saying, “I think the only time we ever have that discussion is when they’re sleeping, but as soon as they're awake, we realize we have our hands full.“
The 47-year-old is known for his epic 4 a.m. workouts, even trying to get his cast and crew in on the fun while shooting “Instant Family.” Not everyone joined in, with Sean commenting, “No, no, my morning workout involves Oreos.”
Mark shared, “Octavia Spencer was the only one out of everyone who said, ‘Oh, yeah, let’s work out, I’d love to work out.' She showed up at my door, too.”
TV personality James Corden recently joined Mark for a morning workout for a segment on “The Late Late Show.” He shared, “Yes he did, he’s the second one… He’s great.”
When Mark isn’t acting or working out, he is busy with his business ventures, including his family’s Wahlburgers restaurants and his car dealerships, even making a hilarious commercial with Ellen DeGeneres, who revealed she helped him sell some cars. He joked, “Quite a few actually, to the point where I think she’s sniffing around for a commission.”
