However, the photos shouldn’t come as a surprise. During a past interview on CNN, Wahlberg explained that his faith in God helped him turn his entire life around.

“I had to focus on my faith,” Wahlberg said. “My faith has really allowed me to overcome a lot of things. And hard work. Nothing comes easy, especially when you have your back against the wall and you have a lot going against you. But I wanted to prove to people through my actions, not my words, that I was going to change.”

In another interview, Wahlberg revealed he tries to pray every single day.

“I pray every day and try to go to church every day. My faith in God is what makes me a better man,” he said. “It’s the most important part of my life. I pray that I will live up to my intention to be the best husband and father than I can be.”

Today, Wahlberg and his wife are raising their children through faith. That’s certainly one of the greatest gifts a parent can give a child.
