Wahlberg Siblings Ranked Oldest to Youngest

9 (Mark) Wahlberg Siblings: Ranked Oldest to Youngest

The Wahlberg last name has become instantly recognizable thanks to the adventures of their brightest star, Mark Wahlberg.

For anyone old enough to remember, you might better recognize him as the muscle-bound Marky Mark from the hip-hop group Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch. Though his career as a rap sensation was more of a flash in the pan that lasted from 1991 to 1993, he managed to put out a few radio hits that we can’t help but tap our feet to, whether we like to admit it or not.

Since his scintillating rise to fame, he and his family have joined the ranks of Hollywood royalty. Whether it’s from their roles in blockbuster movies, social media presence, or their highly successful entrepreneurial endeavors, the Wahlberg siblings cemented themselves as fixtures in pop culture.

Let’s take a look at the tight-knit Wahlberg crew from Boston by ranking them from oldest to youngest!

Mark Wahlberg is the youngest sibling in the Wahlberg family!

It’s only fitting that the most famous of the siblings should be saved for last on our list! Mark is a Swiss Army knife of entertainment. From acting, singing, record producing, film producing, lifting heavy things, and putting them back down again, there isn’t much he can’t do.

Throughout his career, Mark has received several accolades and nominations in the Academy, Golden Globe, Emmy, and Screen Actors Guild.

The transition from his rap career into dramatic acting was met with resistance, and he found himself on the receiving end of plenty of jokes. His work ethic persevered, and he turned himself into one of the most respected actors working today.

Wahlberg’s life hasn’t been all sunshine and rainbows, however. Like Donnie, there are incidents of racial and non-racial violence from his past that he’s expressed regret for and has struggled with for a long time.

Did You Know?

Thanks to his role in the mega-blockbuster Michael Bay film, Transformers: The Last Knight (2016), Mark topped the World’s Highest-paid actor chart in 2017.
