Mwahlberg_1 Actor Mark Wahlberg, 34, announced on Friday that the baby he is expecting in March with model fiancee Rhea Durham is a boy, and they plan to call him Michael. "My dad called me Mike since I was a kid…So in honor of my dad, I think we’re going to name him Michael."

As for plans for more children, Mark says baby Michael and two year old daughter Ella Rae will be enough for him.  Mark, who is one of nine children, says that he [doesn't] "feel a need to outdo my dad… have friends my age who are already grandfathers. I waited for the right time."
