Mark Wahlberg’s Kids Embarrassed By ‘Marky Mark’ ’90s Fashion

Mark Wahlberg’s kids don’t like his ’90s fashion sense.

Wahlberg, 51, recently sat down with his “Me Time” co-stars Kevin Hart and Regina Hall for an interview in which he shared that his children are “terribly embarrassed” by his old looks.

“Oh, they’re terribly embarrassed about it,” Wahlberg said during the interview with Entertainment Tonight, speaking about his “Marky Mark”-era style. “Marky Mark” was Wahlberg’s stage name in the 1990s.

However, Wahlberg jokingly added, “My son, the whole time we were on summer break, he had no shirt on and his underwear was hanging off. He completely stole the whole look.”

Wahlberg shares four children with his wife of 13 years, Rhea Durham: Ella, 18, Michael, 16, Brendan, 13, and Grace, 12.

Before Wahlberg made his acting debut, he was the lead singer and rapper for “Funky Bunch.” The hip-hop group started in 1991 and consisted of Wahlberg (Marky Mark), Scott Ross (Scottie Gee), Hector Barros (Hector the Booty Inspector), Terry Yancy (DJ-T), and Anthony Thomas (Ashley Ace).

“My son just turned 16,” he revealed. “And he is ashamed of everything I do. Even things that people think are cool in 2022, like movies and stuff. It’s like, ‘Dad, that’s so dumb. Dad, that’s terrible.’”

Even with his son’s criticism, Wahlberg shared that his entire family got together to enjoy watching his new comedy “Me Time.”

“I saw with all my family [without them] know something about the story and the script, and see that children can enjoy it as much as adults [was great],” he said.

“There’s a lot of humor that gets away from them a little bit, but it’s very nice.” “Me Time,” starring Wahlberg, Hart and Hall, will premiere on Netflix on August 26.
