In a ” target=”_blank”>new video clip for their A&E TV show Wahlburgers, the Wahlberg brothers talk about their neighborhood – Dorchester – and Mark Wahlberg said he wants his kids to grow up in Boston.
The clip, titled “Dorchester Strong,” comes as A&E is set to air a Fourth of July Wahlburgers special focusing on a family reunion. The show will air Sunday night.
For Mark Wahlberg, who resides in Los Angeles,there’s apparently a desire to have his kids and family find a permanent home on the East Coast.
“You always feel like: Wow, I wish I lived here. I wish my kids lived here. I wish my kids had more opportunity and time to spend with their relatives and their cousins and their aunts and uncles,” Mark Wahlberg said in the clip.
Their mother, Alma, also appears in the clip, which shows her being recognized in a grocery store by a female fan.
“To have somebody come to me and say they never told anybody before that they were from Dorchester, because they were embarrassed … she said now I want to yell to everybody ‘I’m from Dorchester,'” Alma Wahlberg said.
