On Saturday, the actor celebrated his 50th birthday and paid tribute to his late mother, Alma. He began by posting a flashback photo of himself wearing a printed long-sleeve button-up shirt, pants, and a lanyard from the New Kids on the Block. He has his arm around his mother in the photo.
Wahlberg simply wrote the adorable shot, "Miss you." Alma passed away in April of this year after a long struggle with dementia.
While the Deepwater Horizon actor was mourning his mother, Tracey, his older sister, made sure he received a unique birthday gift.
"There is nothing more essential in life than family. Tracey, my older sister, made sure that my birthday was as memorable as my mother's! "I adore you," the actor posted accompanying a video of himself showing off his festive lawn, which features a large sign reading "Happy Birthday.""
"Wow, Tracey, thank you so much for making my birthday so wonderful. I adore you, "In the video, Wahlberg says.
Donnie, Paul, Robert, Jim, Arthur, Tracey, Michelle, Debbie, and Mark were Alma's nine children with ex-husband Donald Wahlberg. Donald died in 2008, and Alma and Donald divorced in 1982.
Donnie chatted with ET's Kevin Frazier only weeks after Alma's passing in April, and the 51-year-old actor hailed his mother and owed all of his success to her.
