Mark Wahlberg’s daughter is aiming high! In a recent interview with E! News, the actor, 52, discussed his daughter Grace’s passion for horses and her specific aspirations in the equestrian world.

Mark Wahlberg insists his daughter is ‘more disciplined’

Wahlberg shared, “My daughter, believe it or not, is more disciplined than me. I didn’t adopt that kind of discipline until I was in my 30s, and I had to do it because of work.” He went on to express his admiration for Grace’s self-driven discipline, revealing, “And now, she does it on her own because she wants to be an Olympian.”

‘So proud of you Grace’

Wahlberg and his wife Rhea Durham often update fans on social media regarding their daughter’s passion. Recently, they shared news about a significant event where she not only participated but also secured new ribbons.

Posting on Instagram this month, Durham, aged 45, wrote, “Last day of showing at the Nationals. So proud of you Grace and Bernadette! You guys went double clear in the children’s mini Grand Prix today, and dad and I almost threw up, but we made it through.”

The proud parents also share sons Brendan, 15, and Michael, 17, and daughter Ella, 20.

Grace appears to have it ‘all figured out’

In June, the actor shared insights with People about his daughter Grace’s passion for horses during his Boston pop-up shop for his MUNICIPAL brand. At that time, he expressed how she’s the most like him, stating, “She works out now. She’s an equestrian. She now wants to go up in meters and to be a Grand Prix Jumper. She’s got to train.”

Wahlberg went on to highlight Grace’s dedication, noting, “She’s doing things that my other kids are kind of now starting to think, ‘Well, we’ve got to start doing something because she’s got it all figured out, what she wants to do and how she wants to do it.’ And she’s doing the work.”
