Looks like Mark Wahlberg is finally settling down!  The actor reveals to Parade.com that he intends to make an honest woman out of longtime girlfriend and mother of his three children, Rhea Durham.

"Rhea and I are talking about getting married next August, but no invitations have been sent out yet," Wahlberg said of his upcoming nuptials.  The actor says he’s been working so much lately that he barely has time to see his family, but that’s all going to change.

"I have been focusing on myself and my career for quite some time.  But now my family is definitely going to become my priority," he says.  "I can’t be working at the pace that I have been for much longer.  I want to be around to take my kids to school and pick them up and drag them to the golf course with me."


But before he does, Mark has one more major project underway. He’s currently taking on an evil corporation in Max Payne, based on the hugely popular video game, and next year you can catch him in Peter Jackson‘s The Lovely Bones.


Of starring in Max Payne, Wahlberg says,"Putting myself in that headspace every day was not a fun place to be.  I would film all week and the kids couldn’t understand why, every time I came home on the weekend, I would just grab them and hold them so tight.  I took the role because I had just played a science teacher in The Happening and an accountant in The Lovely Bones.  I thought it was time to go back and do what I think best suits me, busting some heads and having some fun, kicking the bad guys’ butts."
