Ex-Husband Donnie Wahlberg Wiki

Born on 17 August 1969, Donald Edmond Wahlberg is widely known as an American actor, singer, and a record as well as a film producer. Some of his biggest achievements include founding the group New Kids on the Block, and appearing in the “Saw” horror franchise.

Donnie’s family is of Swedish, Irish, English and French-Canadian lineage.

Donnie Wahlberg

He spent his formative years in a family of 12, having nine siblings.  His brother Mark, also known as Marky Mark, is in the entertainment field as well, having been the leader of the ‘90s rap formation Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch. Donnie also has three half-siblings from his father’s previous relationship.

Career

Donnie caught the attention of the media being a member of New Kids on the Block. The group, active from 1985 to 1994, released seven studio albums in addition to an EP and touring together.

Their debut self-entitled album consisted of 10 tracks, such as “I Wanna Be Loved by You”, “Don’t Give Up on Me” and “Stop It Girl”, and it received generally positive response in the UK, US and Japan. They followed by making “Hangin’ Tough” and “Merry, Merry Christmas” in 1988 and 1989 respectively, the latter album featuring 10 songs such as “This One’s for the Children”, “The Christmas Song” and “The Little Drummer Boy”. It lived up to the expectations set up by their previous album, and was certified platinum in Canada, and gold in Finland and the UK.

New Kids on the Block then released “Step by Step” and “Face the Music”, and although initially parting ways in 1994, the band reunited in 2007, subsequently releasing more albums and an EP entitled “Thankful” in 2017. Their music attracted attention once again, and was covered by several media outlets.

Acting Career

Wahlberg has had 66 acting gigs, but the most prominent ones in his career include his 2006 portrayal of Paul Rader in “Runaway”, and in the next year, the audience was able to see him in “The Kill Point”, in the role of Captain Horst Cali.

The singer-turned-actor has also appeared in two “Saw” movies – in the second and third part. As of 2008, Donnie appeared in New Kids on the Block’s music videos “New Kids on the Block: Summertime”, and “New Kids on the Block: Single”. Subsequently, he was cast to play Danny Reagan in “Blue Bloods”, a TV series that began airing in 2010, and follows the lives of a New York-based family of cops. In 2013, Wahlberg was a narrator in “Boston’s Finest”, and in 2017 could be seen in “Return of the Mac”.

Controversies

Donnie was a subject of controversy in 1991, when he was charged with arson. Reportedly, he accidently set fire to Seelbach Hotel, located in Louisville; the event occurred when the New Kids on the Block singer poured vodka on a carpet, setting it on fire. Luckily for Donnie, he dodged a bullet with the sentence – instead of possibly spending 20 years behind the bars, the singer agreed to make public service videos on dangerous substances. Wahlberg is active on social media and uses Twitter to promote his work – he has 1.5 million followers on that platform. He occasionally shares posts regarding his private life, but judging by his activity, prefers to keep it professional.

Donnie’s Wife Jenny McCarthy

Speaking about his relationship with McCarthy, Waklberg stated that they get each other mentally and spiritually, adding “I think we have so much in common and it’s a really wonderful fit. I think we complement each other.” He also offered advice for young couples – he believes that the couple should always be number one in any relationship, regardless of having children or not. He told his interviewer Rachel Ray, that he and his wife renew their vows each year. “To take that time and just commit again is really nice”, he said.
