Mark Wahlberg has a confession to make: he's a pot smoker.

The reason? His brood of four tots with wife Rhea Durham.

"I stopped smoking weed for my kids," explained the star, who added that he's replaced weekend partying with church-going.

"One day, we were driving and you could smell it from somewhere. My daughter asked what the smell was so I told her it was a skunk. Then she said, 'Sometimes Daddy smells like that!' to me and my wife. So I knew I had to quit."
