Family getaway! Mark Wahlberg and his wife, Rhea Durham, escaped to the tropics for a post-Christmas vacation.
The Fighter star, 51, and the model, 44, were photographed relaxing on the beach in Barbados on Monday, December 26. The Emmy-nominated producer showed off his toned physique in a pair of turquoise swim trunks, which he accessorized with a pair of classic aviator sunglasses.
In one snap, the Departed actor and Durham shared a kiss while going for a swim. The model later shared a selfie from the trip, posting a photo of herself with son Michael, 16. She and Wahlberg, who tied the knot in 2009, are also the parents of Ella, 19, Brendan, 14, and Grace, 12.
Earlier this year, the former rapper revealed that he moved his family from Hollywood to Nevada to give them “a better life” away from the spotlight.
“I want to be able to work from home. I moved to California many years ago to pursue acting and I’ve only made a couple of movies in the entire time that I was there,” the Uncharted star explained during an October interview on The Talk. “So, to be able to give my kids a better life and follow and pursue their dreams whether it be my daughter as an equestrian, my son as a basketball player, my younger son as a golfer, this made a lot more sense for us.”
The Ted actor revealed that he and Durham put their California home on the market in April, adding that he plans to continue his entertainment industry work in the Silver State. “We came here to just kind of give ourselves a new look, a fresh start for the kids, and there’s a lot of opportunity here,” he explained, adding that he wants to create a “Hollywood 2.0” after building a “state-of-the-art studio” in his new home state. “I’m really excited about the future.”
While the prolific actor keeps busy with his work commitments, he’s also vocal about the fact that he always wants to be super present for his children. “I think the most important thing is to always be involved in every aspect of their life,” he told Esquire in 2014. “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.”
