"Blue Bloods" actor Donnie Wahlberg shared throwback pictures of himself on social media, and fans were flooding the remark section with words of admiration for the multitalented artist.
In his recent Instagram post, Wahlberg, 50, posted eight throwback photos of himself, and an image of his quote, which reads: "We're entertainers, while people want us to be Gods."
Along with the hashtags "BHLove" and "loveeternal," Wahlberg captioned the post, "#tbt - remember when they wanted a boy band member who would shut the [expletive] - but they got me instead?"
A NATIONAL TREASURE
The post has already garnered over 44,300 likes on the popular photo and video-sharing social networking service as of writing. The acclaimed actor's devoted fans also reacted with heartwarming comments.
One fan wrote that Wahlberg is a national treasure. Another user added that he will consistently be an upgrade to anyone's expectations. He's "100% real to the bone" since the very beginning, someone else commented.
Since 2010, Wahlberg, who is an aficionado of the basketball team Boston Celtics, has been starring in the hit television series "Blue Bloods" as Danny Reagan.
However, long before he ever wore an NYPD uniform, the older brother of Mark Wahlberg already made a name for himself, as reported by Country Living.
Not only is Wahlberg a great actor, but he is also an incredible singer, record producer, songwriter, and film producer. He is a founding member of the famous boy band New Kids on the Block.
The beloved actor gave love another chance after meeting Jenny McCarthy.
HE'S QUITE RICH
Outside music, his other notable projects besides "Blue Bloods" include "Boomtown," "Saw films," "Zookeeper," "Dreamcatcher," "The Sixth Sense," "Righteous Kill," and "Ransom."
Four decades in the show biz have earned Wahlberg a net worth of $20 million, as reported by CelebrityNetWorth.com.
After just about nine years of marriage, Wahlberg and his ex-wife Kimberly Fey divorced in August 2008. They share two sons — Xavier Alexander and Elijah Hendrix.
The beloved actor gave love another chance after meeting Jenny McCarthy, who was married to John Asher for six years and shared a son named Evan.
As reported by PEOPLE, Wahlberg and McCarthy, who initially met in the Bravo Clubhouse when they both appeared on "Watch What Happens Live" back in 2012, tied the knot on August 31, 2014, in St. Charles, Illinois.
Since their nuptials, the couple's fans have been anticipating the news that there will be an addition to their family. However, they have chosen not to have additional children.
While they are not opposed to the idea of expanding their family, they simply don't feel that they have the opportunity to grow their blended family, according to ET.
