#TBT to — as my beloved mother #Alma would yell every day at dinner time — “Donnie, Mahhhk and Baw-Bo” I’m the one on the left with no teeth eating popcorn like “hey, I’m just here eating some pop corn with no teeth”. Mark is behind me sad, like “I still got my teeth, how come I ain’t got no freaking popcorn”. Bob is in the stripe shirt like, “shut up, both of ya’s, and eat ya freaking pop corn before I knock out all of ya freaking teeth”. @wahlburgers @markwahlberg #Family
This fondness goes beyond the big screens as the Wahlbergs are famed for their large families, and the unbreakable family ties.

Wishing this young man — @markwahlberg — the happiest of birthdays! We’ve had an amazing journey through this lifetime, but nothing has been more enjoyable than the past few years building a business together while rebuilding and strengthening our lifetime bond. Proud of you in so many ways — as a parent, as an entertainer, as an entrepreneur and (of course) as a brother. But also as a friend. I love you so much baby brother! Happy Birthday! 🎉❤️🙏🏼💯🙌🏼🎂#BabyDonnieAndMonkey #MahhhhkAndDawwwnie #BornDay
Dressed in black, the duo looked young, and handsome, with the actor wearing a Miami heat cap, looking like the regular American youth, while his singer brother looked the rockstar part in his classy leather jacket and gold chain. So who’s the hotter brother? Definitely Donnie.
TO AN AMAZING BROTHER
The actor also included a birthday wish, acknowledging his big bro for his successes. He wrote:
“Happy 50th Birthday @donniewahlberg!! We have come a long way since this photo wouldn’t be where I am today without you! Love you big bro.”
The post attracted several comments, and birthday wishes, including one from American star basketballer, Jimmy Butler, who apparently had a different opinion about who was hotter among the pair.
JENNY’S BIG PARTY PLANS
Donnie’s wife, Jenny McCarthy was not left out of the celebrations. She revealed that she was planning a birthday bash for her beau.
While atttending the Fox Summer Los Angeles TCA All-Star party, the former co-host of “The View” told reporters that:
“I’ll be paying this party off until I’m 90. Truly, I’m going as far as I can without feeling for bankruptcy. I wanted to give him like the greatest party ever because he’s been the most wonderful human being, not only with me but with everyone he knows.”
DONNIE’S EMOTIONAL SIDE: BROTHERS LOVE
Donnie has indeed been a wonderful person, as a lot of other people acknowledged while sending him birthday wishes on social media, including his brother, who for the umpteenth time, credited the NKOB bandmate for his success.
The singer’s wife, who was also known for her radio show, SiriusXM, once got a chance to interview her husband, along with his former bandmates on her show.
On the show, the 50-year-old got emotional as he recounted how his brother acknowledged him as the secret behind his success during a 2011 concert.
The Wahlbergs continue to support each other; they make their impact in the world by being the perfect example of the model siblings.
