Mark Wahlberg is a dedicated father.
The 45-year-old actor Instagrammed a sweet photo with his two daughters, 13-year-old Ella
and 7-year-old Grace, on Monday, the trio cuddled up together. Wahlberg gave a huge grin in a purple T-shirt and sweats while lying down in between Grace -- who held on tight to a giant stuffed toy -- and Ella, who sported a stylish denim jacket with patches.
"Took my girls on a daddy-daughter bonding weekend. #family," Wahlberg wrote.
In addition to Ella and Grace, Wahlberg has two sons with wife Rhea Durham, 8-year-old Brendan and 10-year-old Michael.
Earlier this month, Wahlberg joked about his daughter Ella's crush on Justin Bieber
during his appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show
, and was adorably protective of her.
"She liked him a lot when she was younger, turned on him completely, and then came back with a vengeance," he explained. "Like, 'Dad, that's going to be my husband.' I was like, 'Over my dead body. Actually, over both your dead bodies.' I'll just go back to jail."
Family clearly comes first for the Patriots Day
star. Last month, he surprised his mother, Alma, with a brand new car
at the film's premiere.
"I don't know if there's words [to describe how proud I am], but he's come a long way," Alma told ET at the time. "About a year and a half ago, I said to him, 'You know the rules, call your mother! You have to call your mother!' And he's like, 'Well, I was busy.' I said, 'No, no, no, all you have to do is: 'Hi, Ma, how ya doin'? OK, I gotta go!'"
"So, he's called me every day for the last two years," she continued. "Every day ... And you know what I love? He's grateful, and so that makes me really happy."
