Mark Wahlberg's daughter Grace, 12, is his doppelgänger as actor shares throwback picture with long hair
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA: Mark Wahlberg's daughter Grace might actually be his doppelgänger after his latest Instagram post revealed an uncanny resemblance between them when his hair was long.
The 'Mile 22' star shared a recent photo of his 12-year-old daughter posing with her horse and compared her look to a throwback photo of himself with shoulder-length locks. The 51-year-old star had his hair grown out in a similar style as hers in an Instagram post on Monday, December 26. Aside from Grace, Wahlberg shares sons Brendan, 14, and Michael, 16, and daughter Ella, 19, with his wife Rhea Durham, 44.

The Oscar nominee captioned the comparison shots, "They say we look alike?” His nephew Jeff Wahlberg commented, “OMFG.” Actor Mario Lopez told Wahlberg that he's often also "twinning" with his daughter Gia. Meanwhile, his wife Durham simply wrote, “♥️ .”
The 'Uncharted' star is known to document his dad life on social media, where he has celebrated Grace’s equestrian wins to sharing golfing moments with his boys. Wahlberg celebrated his daughter's latest equestrian accomplishments last month, posing with Grace and her two newest ribbons. "Proud of my baby girl. 🐴🥇🏆❤️," he captioned the shots.
The 'Pain and Gain' actor joked in July about looking forward to an empty nest during an appearance on 'The Tonight Show', where host Jimmy Fallon pointed out that Wahlberg's youngest daughter is only 12. "She's already traveling the world, jumping horses and doing her thing," he said of Grace. "Of course, she picked the most expensive sport possible," the actor quipped. When asked if he tried to talk her out of it, Wahlberg said, "No, she loves it," adding, "And she takes so much pride in the little stuff. She's at the barn every day, shoveling poop ... she's up before me."
In December 2020, the Hollywood hunk told People that his main parenting goal was to give his children the "tools that will make them good people.” He continued, “I want to give them all the things I never had but make sure they understand it’s not normal and that it takes hard work to get what you want.” The Emmy nominee also revealed at the time how he "dreaded” his daughters dating one day. However, he has been rather supportive of Ella's relationship, even hitting the gym with her boyfriend James Stuart.

The 'Mile 22' star called his eldest child's lover "sweet" in a February interview with Ellen DeGeneres. “I think he’s more scared of my daughter than he is of me,” he joked at the time, “I pray for him more than I pray for her in that relationship." He added, “They’re perfect for each other. We have a great relationship. He’s fantastic. I hope she can keep him.”
Wahlberg told 'The Talk' co-hosts in October that his family recently moved from Los Angeles to Nevada so he would "be able to give [his] kids a better life to follow and pursue their dreams,” He said he considered the move "a fresh start” and a “new look,” adding, “There’s lots of opportunity here.”
