Mark Wahlberg is helping his stunning wife, Rhea Durham, celebrate her birthday with a bikini photo that has now gone viral.
The Ballers producer took to Facebook, and he shared a lovely photo montage of four photos that featured special moments between Rhea and her family.
In three of the pictures, the former Victoria’s Secret model is bonding with her children — Ella, 17, Michael, 15, Brendan, 12, and Grace, 11.
And in one snap, Rhea is rocking an orange bathing suit while sitting on Mark Wahlberg’s lap, who is admiring her. The proud husband penned a loving message for his wife, who turned 43 this week.
It read: “Happy birthday to my wife Rhea, who is not only a total smokeshow, but most importantly, an incredible mother to our four amazing children. Love you, babe!! ❤️🎉🎂🥰”
The former model, who is currently on vacation with her entire family in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, posted a few pictures of the birthday celebration on her Instagram.
She uploaded a picture of the stunning balloon arrangement she received for her special day.
She also shared pictures of her children bonding with their father during walks in nature, boat trips, and other fun-filled activities.
Mark Wahlberg and the brunette have been together for 20 years and have been married for 12. In interviews, the actor and businessman often pays tribute to his wife for being an amazing partner and mother to their four children.
He stated: “I owe a lot to my wife. She has helped me become the man that I am and created a beautiful life for me and our children. I also knew that she loved me for who I am and that she was someone I could trust. Until I met her, I wasn’t ready to get married.”
He also gave the secret to his long-lasting relationship by saying: “Rhea always wanted to be a mother. She had a job, but her mission in life was to be a mother and to be a wife. We share the same values. Obviously, the physical attraction was there, but that’s not what keeps a couple together.”
The star, who was embroiled in numerous race-related scandals as a teenager, also confessed that he is determined to raise his children the right way.
He claimed: “My mission in life is to raise my kids right. With all the success I’ve had in the world, if I fail at that, my life means nothing. Raising your kids is the most challenging but also the most rewarding role. I always try to instill in them as many positive values as I can and also try to lead by example in terms of working hard and being a good husband.”
Observers say that a relationship like this one is quite rare in Hollywood.
