Mark Wahlberg Cuddles Close with Ella

Mark Wahlberg kept 5-year-old daughter Ella Rae close to his heart while arriving at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif. last week. Mark and his fiancée, model Rhea Durham, are also parents to  Michael, 2 ½, and Brendan Joseph, 3 months.

Mark recently shared that he and Rhea plan to leave the Los Angeles area eventually, because he believes it’s a less-than-ideal place for children to grow up.

"We won’t stay there forever but it’s very difficult to raise normalkids in an environment like that. And I was thinking there’s no realrole models for girls. You’ve got Britney Spears, you’ve got Paris Hilton; they’re nice enough people but I don’t want my daughter to aspire to be like that."

Cute Pic! I haven’t seen a picture of those two in a while. Mark is in really good shape.

It looks like poor Ella hurt her knee. 😦

Ella looks like the Wahlbergs and more like uncle Donnie. Thanks for the picture. I love seeing Mark with his children. I hope that we get to see a picture of Brendan soon.

SARAH – AWWWWW thanks for the link! He’s so adorable and definitely a Wahlberg like Ella. Michael also looks like Mark but I can see a little of Rhea in him. Mark and Rhea have some adorable children, they are one of my top favorite celebrity families!

That is so true. Lots of bad influences here.
