As several cities across the country go into self-isolation in the wake of COVID-19 risks, TV star Donnie Wahlberg recalled a time prior to the advent of the deadly disease.


The "Blue Bloods" star took to Instagram to share a throwback snapshot of him and his son enjoying a Boston Celtics game before the novel coronavirus outbreak forced everyone to stay inside homes.

Wahlberg showed that he is getting nostalgic about simple things that were normal in the recent past including going out in the public and sitting less than six feet apart.



"Watching a [Celtics] game, outside our home, in a public place, less than six feet apart, the day before everything changed," Wahlberg captioned the image that sees him watching the game on a phone being held by his grown-up son.

The TV star also left a special message about cherishing each moment in life through the caption to the post. "Every day is a gift," he opined, elaborating on the importance of every little thing in life.


With all the gathering of masses being discouraged and all the major sporting events canceled, Wahlberg can only reminiscent about enjoying these experiences at the moment.

This also means that he can no longer be sitting courtside, along with wife Jenny McCarthy, as a die-hard fan to support his favorite NBA team from Boston.

Even when not sitting in for quarantine, Wahlberg loves spending time with his family at his Chicago home, where he lives with his wife, Jenny McCarthy, and children, Elijah and Evan.

Despite his busy schedule, Wahlberg always finds time to return home to spend some quality time with his wife and children.


Speaking to "CBS," the actor previously opened up about how he and McCarthy manage their schedules to spend as much time as possible with one another and their children.

"We—with our sons—really do everything to be together."

Just about a month prior to the outbreak of COVID-19, Wahlberg opened up about a surprising gift that they received as a couple from their neighbor.

The actor revealed that their neighbor gave them a painting of themselves, which was created by an Australian painter with a quirky technique.
