Other Relationship Information about Mark Wahlberg and Rhea Durham:

They wed at the Good Sheperd Catholic Church in Beverly Hills, California on August 1, 2009. Wahlberg wore a dark suit and the bride a white strapless dress with silver embroidery. "She looked like a princess and beyond stunning. Mark looked ecstatic," says an eyewitness shortly after the ceremony, which lasted for about 45 minutes. The church was decorated with candles and pink and light purple roses. They spent a quiet pre-wedding moment alone at the church Friday afternoon. Wahlberg, looking happy and relaxed, sat down in the front row before returning home to his Beverly Hills home for a small gathering.

Classic Quotes by Mark Wahlberg and Rhea Durham about their relationship:

"Divorce is a bigger mistake than living with two children, not being married. My parents are divorced, her parents are divorced - so we want to succeed." Mark Wahlberg 2/2007
"If we do it here [in L.A.], it'll probably just be us and the kids. If we do it in Boston, I would say there'd be a lot more family members, so there'll be some fighting. [It will] definitely [be] in a Catholic church.[Brendan is] well behaved. He doesn't go crazy like the other little ones. They love him. Everybody wants mommy's attention but they love him." Mark Wahlberg 2/2/2009
"It is the best! It's awesome. There's not as much sleep, though. We are outnumbered now! [The wedding ceremony will be] Catholic church, small, family only, no media! And there will be no wedding pictures sold to any magazines!" Mark Wahlberg 10/13/2008
"I'm not into the waif thing...I'm more into curvy women." Mark Wahlberg 3/2009
"[Parenthood is] amazing. Wonderful. Wonderful, it really is. Everything about it. There's not a thing [Ella] could do, nothing I don't like about it. [It makes you] realize your priorities. It's real life. You have to be so involved. [I want to] just hang out with her. I don't want anything or need anything. I just want to hang out with her." Mark Wahlberg 6/18/2004
"It's the best. Oh yeah. [Ella] knows I can't say no [to her]. I've been doing this [career] for too long to care anymore. It's not something that I'm going to do forever...I have other interests. Golf. My daughter. Yeah. I mean, I wouldn't say that I'm not coming back. If [director] David [O. Russell] wanted me to work I would certainly work with friends and for friends. But yeah, I don't want to do this forever. [Fatherhood] changes everything. It certainly changes the decisions that I make in the future, the kinds of films that I do and the kinds of things that I put out there. I certainly would have a hard time accepting a role like [porn star Dirk Diggler in] 'Boogie Nights' now that I have a daughter. I mean, I'm going to have to explain it anyway, but I was a different person then...I'm really just at a different place. [We'll get married] soon, hopefully." Mark Wahlberg 10/7/2004
"I'm just going to stay home for Christmas, and go somewhere warm for New Year's. It's my first Christmas in California [with] my 15-month-old. So we're gonna take her to see Santa, get the tree. I'm trying not to get her everything, because she already has everything! I'm just going to go out and try to look for that one special thing. Very exciting. I've never spent Christmas in California. It's very weird with the pink houses and the palm trees and 80-degree weather. My family's coming in from Boston so it'll be nice. [I] just [want] to be with my daughter, and for her to be as happy as she always is." Mark Wahlberg 12/23/2004
"It changes every aspect of your life for the better. She's been talking - the stuff that comes out of her mouth. [When we went Christmas shopping], I would've bought her whatever she wanted. She only wanted a little Hellow Kitty and Gew Well Elmo, which is so random, because she was sick today, so I tucked her in with her Elmo. He's got a little cast. And he got a Band-Aid on his leg." Mark Wahlberg 8/15/2005
"My dad called me Mike since I was a kid. So in honor of my dad, I think we're going to name [our son] Michael. I don't feel a need to outdo my dad [who had nine kids]. I have friends my age who are already grandfathers. I waited for the right time." Mark Wahlberg 1/7/2006
"[My mom told me] to learn to say no. [But] anything my daughter wants or anything she does is fine with me." Mark Wahlberg 3/29/2006
"I have a very quiet, happy, simple life. I go to the golf course, I go to the store, take my kids to the park and stuff. There's not too much to it. My daughter wants to fight with daddy. And then she says, 'Oh no, don't hurt me, I'm just a gentle, little girl.' She's got a lot of me in her, and a lot of her mom. It's amazing to see. You can't help but look and laugh and smile from the first cry. My son is amazing. He's getting big, and I've been working too long. I have to get back home. I would like my daughter to be a professional golfer - I don't want her to be anywhere near Hollywood. She has her own clubs and we golf together. I have a little practice range in the backyard that she likes to play in. We'll start out putting and then maybe she'll go play in the sand and throw sand in my eyes." Mark Wahlberg 8/25/2006
"I've been worrying about me and my career. That's going to take a backseat at some point. I want to do some great work now, some interesting movies, and then be going to school plays and soccer games - far from a camera...I don't want to raise my kids in Hollywood." Mark Wahlberg 10/8/2006
"[Filming 'We Own the Night'] was at a really tough time. I was about to have my second child. I had left shortly after my first child was born to work and that was a very difficult experience." Mark Wahlberg 10/4/2007
"When the kids are good, we want eight or nine. When they're bad, we [want] to stop at three. [Our household is] awesome. Hectic at times. But a lot of fun. My fear is failing as a father, as a friend, as a son. I have a lot of responsibility and a lot of people counting on me. And I know God has put me in this position to put back and try to create some opportunities for some others, show kids there is another way." Mark Wahlberg 10/13/2007
"I had a beautiful day with my kids and my future wife. We went to brunch. We're thrilled [to have another kid]! For the most part, my kids are darlings. But at 5 a.m., it can be a little crazy." Mark Wahlberg 6/5/2007
"She wants to wait until after the baby [to get married]. We've been very fortunate. We've waited and worked hard to really strengthen our relationship. We want it right. We're ready. I'm ready. She's been ready, but I think you know, we both come from broken homes and we want to succeed. It's going to be a beautiful occasion. Very intimate. Of course [the kids will be in it] - if they want to be." Mark Wahlberg 6/13/2008
"We continue to grow in our relationship. I think we have a much better chance at succeeding and staying together. I wasn't prepared to be married - I don't care who it was - at [age] 20 or 30. [But now I'm] committing to really making it work constantly and all the other things that go into building a solid foundation. Before I couldn't manage to go to school for four or five hours a day and then be able to get my homework done. But once I took out the nightlife part of my life, you know going out from 10 to 3, 4, 5, 6 in the morning, there's enough time in the day to do all the stuff I'm doing and then some and get a good eight hours sleep. My family travels with me when I work most of the time, or I go back and forth on weekends. [I now have] a good four or five months off. I try to take as much time off as possible...Mommy's had enough of Daddy being away at work. I didn't want to play [the 'Max Payne' video game] because I have an addictive personality. I got more responsibility now than I've ever had with the kids and everything else. I don't want to be spending 14 hours on the videogame and then eight hours on the set. It's not going to work out." Mark Wahlberg 7/24/2008
"My son is completely frustrated because he was the baby. He literally said, 'The baby has to go to Florida!' That's the only full sentence he's said. My daughter's thrilled. She thinks she has a little baby - a little plaything. In the middle of moving, [we're] hoping to get married all in the stretch of six or nine months. We're getting to know each other. Both of our parents are divorced. So we're trying to make it work. We decided we wanted to get married. Then the second baby was coming - then the third. We hardly had time. I have a lot of explaining to do [about my earlier, riskier career choices]. I'm trying to figure out how to destroy the evidence." Mark Wahlberg 10/9/2008
"We're talking about [getting married in] August. I don't know [where it will be held]. It will be in the Catholic Church somewhere. I'm the youngest of nine [kids. We will have] however many Mom wants to have. The fact that I stopped going out and partying, that allowed me to do it. There's more than enough time [now] to take care of everything and still get a good night's sleep." Mark Wahlberg 10/14/2008
"We're talking about August. It will be in a Catholic church somewhere." Mark Wahlberg 2009
