Mark Wahlberg may be a diehard New England Patriots fan, but he’s still able to prioritize! The father of four had to miss the team’s surprising victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday night after one of his sons was under the weather during the Super Bowl.
“I had to leave the game early because my youngest son wasn't feeling well,” he said of Brendan. “Trust me, I would have loved to be at the stadium -- but family first. Doesn't mean I don't love my Patriots too!”
The Boston native has been a longtime supporter of the Patriots. For the big game his sons wore Gronkowski and Blount jerseys, and he gave his pals Usher and Ludacris a hard time for their team’s loss.
“You know what, I'm just trying to make sure that my guys are ready,” he said. “I know they're ready anyway but just, you know what, this is, this is it right here. You know, to be able to win five, to cement yourself unquestionably as the best ever, of all time, it's incredible.”
And Wahlberg isn’t just into spending time with his sons. Last week the actor enjoyed an adorable “Daddy-daughter bonding” weekend with his girls, Ella and Grace. For more on their sweet time, watch the clip!
