Mark Wahlberg: My Faith Is “The Most Important Part Of My Life”

In an interview with Parade, Lone Survivor actor Mark Wahlberg, 42, opens up about his faith an family life with wife Rhea Durham and their four children: Ella, 10, Michael, 7, Brendan, 5, and Grace, 3.

On how he spends Sundays: “If the kids are good, I’ll have doughnuts for them at 6:30 in the morning, and I’ll say, ‘You guys gotta let Mommy sleep in!’ I’ll go to church at 7:30 and everybody will be eating breakfast when I come home. Then we’ll go to church again at 10:30, if things aren’t too hectic. Or if one of the kids has a game we’ll watch them play. It’s a nice family day.”

On faith: “It’s the most important part of my life. I don’t try to push it on anybody and I don’t try to hide it.”

On father-son time: “My sons and I thoroughly enjoy Legos. We go to the toy store every week for more. I never want to take what we build apart; I want to put it on a shelf. My wife is starting to get a little annoyed with the Legos lying around.”

On who’s in his entourage now: “My wife, the kids, and a wonderful nanny. When I’m filming, all the guys are with me; but if I’m not at work, I’m with my family.”
