During an interview, The Other Guys actor revealed that Michael’s name is actually an ode to his late dad, Donald Wahlberg. While talking with Esquire, he expressed that his father “unknowingly” gave the idea for his son’s name.

Moreover, he said that his dad never called him by his actual name. Instead, Donald called Mark, “Monkey” which used to annoy him a lot. He further expressed,

So, I had my first sit-down heart-to-heart wit my dad, and I said, ‘Dad, I got to talk to you. I don’t like the name Monkey’. And he’s like, ‘Well, I’m sorry. I won’t ever call you that aain. What do yo want me to call you?’ And I said, ‘I like the name Mike.’

And well, that was that. Unfortunately, in 2008, Mr. Wahlberg passed away. His grandson never got to know him well, however, an essence of him survives with him.

Yough Wahlberg Is A Devoted Catholic

The Fighter star is a Catholic man. As per his interview with Today, he doesn’t start a day without performing a prayer, reading scriptures, or going to Mass. Moreover, he is not the type of guy to force his religion upon his kids. However, it came naturally to Michael.

On 29th May 2022, his dad shared a video of his successful confirmation of Catholicism. For those who do not know, it is a simple ceremony marking one’s connection with the religion. Mark was incredibly happy with his eldest son’s decision.
