Mark Wahlberg, 38, and his eldest son Michael were spotted out in Brentwood, Calif. on Saturday (April 3) as they made their way to the Karate school where the ambitious 3-year-old is taking lessons.
Recently, the former Funky Bunch member chatted with Jimmy Kimmel about another sport that his son has taken a liking to:
My son is obsessed with boxing. I took him to see Manny Pacquiao yesterday at the Wild Card Gym. I have a boxing ring at home because I did [the film The Fighter], so I put up a ring in my backyard. As soon as we got home he wanted to go in the ring and just pound the crap out of me. And we did that again today. He puts on the gloves, he tells me to get on my hands and my knees and put my hands behind my back and he just punches me as hard as he can.
It looks like little Michael might be following in his dad’s “tough guy” footsteps!
Mark and wife Rhea Durham are also parents to Ella Rae, 6, Brendan Joseph, 19-months, and Grace Margaret, 2 ½-months.
