Mark Wahlberg talks parenthood in Hollywood

By Rachel Karach,

Although Mark Wahlberg remains an incredibly famous actor, he most recently opened up about his most important role yet: being a dad.

Wahlberg is currently promoting his highly anticipated debut in the Transformers series. The action flick premiered for wide release on Friday, June 27, and is set for a successful opening weekend at the box office. However, it’s easy — and refreshing — to see that the actor has more than movie business on his mind.

The 43-year-old actor has four children (two boys and two girls ranging from ages 4 to 10!) with his wife Rhea. When asked how he and his wife juggle raising four kids, he told People, “It’s not easy, but it’s how we always pictured things.”

The top-notch dad strives to keep his family grounded despite his wild success in the film industry. Wahlberg hopes to instill a sense of drive and determination in his children while providing his family with a better life than he had as a kid. "I want to give them all the things I never had but make sure they understand it's not normal and that it takes hard work to get what you want," he said. "You have to provide them with the tools that will make them good people."

What an awesome father! Transformers: Age of Extinction is in theaters now.
