Celebrity Parents Mark Wahlberg a changed man thanks to family By Staff Author Published on October 9, 2006 08:00 AM Share Tweet Pin Email Actor Mark Wahlberg, 35, told People that he has changed a lot in the past years. One of the reasons behind it is his family. "I’ve been worrying about me and my career. That’s going to take a backseat at some point. I want to do some great work now, some interesting movies, and then be going to school plays and soccer games – far from a camera." He is looking for a home in a more tranquil place, though he has on in Hollywood: "But I don’t want to raise my kids in Hollywood." Wahlberg and girlfriend Rhea Durham, 28, have daughter Ella Rae, 3, and son Michael, 6 months. Source: People.com Thanks to CBB reader Mary Beth.
