Mark Wahlberg’s Daughter Is ‘Doing the Work’ at Barn after He Fled $90M LA Mansion to Give Kids a ‘Better Life’

Mark Wahlberg moved gradually up to become quite possibly of the most predictable and effective entertainer in Hollywood. The actor didn’t have it easy, but he stayed true to his faith and put in a lot of effort to succeed. He has now given up the opulent life he had in Los Angeles for a simple, contented life with his family—his daughter even works hard at a barn!
Mark Robert Michael Wahlberg was born on June 5, 1971, in a low-income area of Boston, Massachusetts. He and his eight siblings lived in a cramped three-bedroom apartment with little privacy when they were young. His parents divorced when he was only 11, and by the age of 14, he dropped out of high school. His teenage years were filled with rebellion. He had a stint in prison after leading a troubled life.

After serving 45 days in prison, his older brother Donnie, who was a member of New Kids on the Block, encouraged him to start a music career. In the 1990s, he found fame as “Marky Mark,” forming a band called Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch.

The band only reached moderate success, with his toned physique racking up more admirers than his rapping. He was eventually hired by Calvin Klein as an underwear model, and it launched his career altogether. However, his bad boy image began to worsen after a series of scandals heightened by media coverage. The last straw from his streak of bad behavior was when he was brought to court for allegedly assaulting a security guard.

Wahlberg was ordered by the court to appear in several anti-bias advertisements. This humbled and humiliated Wahlberg, who decided to drop his Marky Mark persona. Then came Mark Wahlberg – the actor. He remains to be one of the few artists who have successfully made a transition from being a musician to a well-celebrated actor.

Wahlberg aimed to prove all his doubters wrong by becoming a successful actor. He starred in “Renaissance Man,” “The Basketball Diaries,” and “Fear.” His breakthrough role came in 1997 on “Boogie Nights.” Since then, he was able to successfully show his dynamic acting in his subsequent films, “Three Kings,” “The Perfect Storm,” Planet of the Apes,” and more. In 2009, he married Rhea Durham, with whom he shares four kids named Ella Rae, Grace Margaret, Brandon, and Michael. That same year, he splurged $8.25 million on land in Beverly Park.

He then acquired the help of Richard Landry to build his mansion, which became home to him and his family for years. It took five years to build the French-inspired palace, which Wahlberg recently sold.

Moving Kids to Nevada was the Biggest Challenge
It’s not easy to move your entire life out of a city you’ve called home for decades, but Wahlberg made that change for his family. He left California and moved to Nevada to give his children a “better life.”

The actor was the first to admit that balancing work and being a father was “the biggest challenge.” He claimed that every free moment he isn’t at work, he spends at home with his children. With his children growing up, Wahlberg wants to give them the right environment to thrive in whatever it is they want to do. His daughter is an equestrian, one of his sons is a basketball player, and another is a golfer.
