Donnie’s family was close-knit when he was younger, and they all attended to church together every Sunday. Having such a large family, however, was not without its drawbacks; siblings regularly quarreled, and the family was frequently short on funds. Donnie’s parents split when he was 12 years old, in 1982. While the rest of the siblings were either out on their own as adults or had gone to live with their father, he and Mark decided to live with their mother.
Donald, a teamster and delivery truck driver, and Alma, a nurse’s aide, have nine children. Donnie is the eighth. Mark Wahlberg, a fellow actor, musician, and producer, is his younger brother. Wahlberg is distantly connected to Nathaniel Hawthorne on his mother’s side.
Donnie Wahlberg net worth and salary
Donnie Wahlberg is an American actor, singer and producer who has a net worth of $25 million. He first became known as a member of the boy band New Kids on the Block. He is also an actor and entrepreneur.
The Wahlbergs aren’t your typical family. It is a family with artistic ability, financial success, and wealth, making it one of Hollywood’s most recognised families.
Wahlberg and his close friend Danny Wood both attended Copley High School. It was here that they founded The Kool Aid Bun, a rap group. Donnie auditioned for music producer Maurice Starr when he was 15 years old. He was holding open auditions for the first large boy band in the United States.
Starr was immediately smitten with Wahlberg’s triple threat of singing, dancing, and rapping abilities, and he enlisted him for the group. Wahlberg enlisted the help of his brother Mark, buddy Danny Wood, Jordan Knight, and Knight’s elder brother Jonathan, as well as Jordan Knight’s older brother Jonathan. Mark was dissatisfied with the band’s artistic direction and abruptly left.
Donnie was one of pop music’s first stereotypical “bad boys.” NKOTB sold tens of millions of records and more than $400 million in goods at the height of their fame. Donnie assisted Mark in launching his rap career as NKOTB’s success began to diminish in the early 1990s.
Donnie co-wrote and produced Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch’s platinum-selling debut album “Music for the People.” Donnie subsequently embarked on a career as an actor.
Donnie reunited with former NKOTB members for a reunion album, The Block, released in 2008. It debuted at number one on the Billboard charts. To promote the album, they went on a globe tour. In 2013, Donnie and the rest of NKOTB took part in the Package Tour, which also included 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men.

Donnie earned $60,000 per episode in the early seasons of Blue Bloods, or about $1.3 million per season. In recent years, his per-episode pay has averaged $150,000, equating to almost $3.3 million per season.
