Mark Wahlberg is a protective father when it comes to his daughters, but there's one young man that seems to have his approval.
The 46-year-old actor joins his Daddy's Home 2 co-star, Will Ferrell, on the season 15 premiere of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Tuesday, and reveals that his 13-year-old daughter, Ella, has had some "form of communication" with Ferrell's 13-year-old son, Magnus.
"I thought [Magnus] was a lovely lad until I found out that he has formed some sort of communication with my oldest child," Wahlberg shares.
"They're following each other on Instagram," Ferrell chimes in.
"Nobody is a good type or sort," he said. "She's a sweetheart, she's growing up too fast. It's just the fatherly thing in me, you know? I just don't want [her] being anything other than sheltered and protected."
