Mark Wahlberg had his children on the mind during his “Today” show appearance on Monday. He revealed that being an actor is not his most important role in life.  Being a good father and husband is the most important thing to him.

“If I succeed as a businessman but fail as a father, then it’s all been for nothing,” Wahlberg revealed. “That’s by far the most important role that I’ll ever play in my life — being a parent and being a husband.”

When he is not working Wahlberg insists his daily life is like any other parent.

“Usually my youngest son wakes me up about 5:30, (and) drags me out of the bed. He wears a pull-up, but he doesn’t like to pee in it. So I got to help him get the pull-up off to go to the bathroom. Then will sit down and watch cartoons and get a snack, and wait for the other kids to get up,” Wahlberg said.

“The two boys like to beat me up, to put their masks on and beat me up. And then it’s just a whole day with the kids.”
