They say a good mustache can hide a few pounds in your face, but not 20 lbs!
Mark Wahlberg continued to show off his body transformation on Monday, May 3, but he received support from the person who matters most… his wife! Rhea Wahlberg sounded off in the comments section of his latest weight gain post to let him know that everything is still great at home.
The muscly actor shared two photos, one from a short time ago and one current pic. “From left photo 3 weeks ago to this, now. Thanks to @chef_lawrence_d cooking,” Mark captioned his insane transformation. He seems very proud to have bulked up in such a short amount of time, but then again, he is gaining lbs. on purpose for a role. Rhea assured him that he’s still fine.
“And it looks just as hot in person baby ❤️,” Wahlberg’s supportive and beautiful wife commented.
Mark first revealed his shocking weight gain to his fans over the weekend when he congratulated his friend for losing weight and himself for gaining it. “Kenny’s been losing weight; I’ve been gaining weight,” Wahlberg said before lifting his shirt. He patted his extended belly and called it “what Kenny lost.”
20 extra pounds or not, the dude is still committed to the gym, and his fit friend, Mario Lopez complimented him on his heavier frame. “Yo. You wear mad chubby well homie!” he wrote.
Rhea and her husky hubby have a great relationship on social media, and they are not afraid to express their love for each other. In fact, sometimes Mark gets a little too frisky on the gram. Wahlberg shared some photos in July where he squeezed Rhea’s backside extra tight while on a public walk. He also gave her a little pat when Rhea was filming her “Savage” TikTok dance.
Perhaps she took notice of the IG thots hollering at the heavier actor and decided that she would make him feel special on social media as well!
