Mark Wahlberg Brings Kids Ella, Michael, Brendan, Wife Rhea Durham to Transformers Premiere: Picture
All in the family! Mark Wahlberg brought his gorgeous wife and their adorable children to the Ziegfeld Theater on Wednesday evening, June 25, for the New York City premiere of Transformers: Age of Extinction.
Wahlberg, 43, fêted his new movie alongside his model love Rhea Durham, whom he married in 2009, after eight years of dating.
The couple posed on the red carpet with three of their four children, celebrating with eldest daughter Ella, 10, and sons Michael, 8, and Brendan, 5. The youngest of the brood, daughter Grace, 4, was noticeably absent from the event.
The Entourage star looked sharp for the premiere, wearing a well-cut Giorgio Armani suit in a faint pinstriped-plaid print with a white shirt and a light blue striped tie. Durham, 35, stunned in a figure-hugging black dress with a triangle-shaped cutout at the midriff and a pair of hot pink heels.
The Wahlberg kids kept it dressy-casual in collared shirts worn with sneakers and sandals. A replacement of sorts for former franchise star Shia LaBeouf, their father stars in the new, fourth Transformers movie alongside Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, and Nicola Peltz. The action flick hits theaters on June 27.
Once famously a bad boy with a rap sheet, Wahlberg has become quite the family man, even covering the June/July fatherhood-themed issue of Esquire magazine with one of his sons.
"I think the most important thing is to always be involved in every aspect of their life," Wahlberg told the publication about his kids. "To give them enough trust that they can share things with you. I don’t want them to be terrified of me, you know? But I don’t want them to think they can do whatever they want and get away with it, either, because they can't."
