Time is ticking! Mark Wahlberg spoke to Us Weekly at the premiere of Ted 2 in NYC last week about what makes his marriage to Rhea Durham successful.

"Spend quality time together," the actor, 44, told Us. "Really, that's what matters."

A red carpet observer at the premiere told Us that the parents of four (to Brendan, Grace, Ella, and Michael) looked "very happy and in love" for their night out. The observer noted that Wahlberg held his wife's hand throughout their time on the red carpet outside of the Ziegfeld Theatre.

Following the premiere, guests and stars made their way over to the Loeb's Boathouse in NYC's famed Central Park. According to an eyewitness at the bash, the man of the hour opted to stay close to his wife the entire time. "They stayed at a table together and he was very attentive, by her side," the observer told Us. "She was beaming when he came over."

Other stars to attend the afterparty included Amanda Seyfried, Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, and Bella Thorne.

Of course, after the party came the afterparty, which was held at luxurious Manhattan enclave The Carlyle. A source at the afterparty said most of the boozy bash was held inside the main music room of the hotel, where Woody Allen plays with the band.

The attendee told Us that Ted 2 director Seth MacFarlane sat in with the band at one point and sang, "I Could Have Spread My Wings," "Call Me Irresponsible," and other classics.
