In a new interview, Mark Wahlberg has opened up about how his family feels about moving from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. 

The actor is married to Rhea Durham, and the couple shares four children: Ella, 19; Michael, 16; Brendan, 14; and Grace, 12.

In an interview with E! News, he revealed how his family is adjusting to living in Sin City.

“They love Vegas. I spent lots of time in L.A. pursuing my interests and my career, and now it’s time for them to pursue theirs. Everybody is thriving there. It’s been great,” he said to the outlet.

The 52-year-old actor talked about attending the Bruno Mars, and Adele shows during their Las Vegas residency. 

He also praised the restaurants in the city, which he said have lots of entertainment to keep himself and his family occupied. 

Wahlberg is leaving behind his vast Beverly Hills mansion, which he put up for sale for almost $90 million last year.

According to the outlet, the actor previously detailed how his children are better off in Las Vegas to pursue their ambitions, telling The Talk that three of his children are involved in sports. 

“To be able to give my kids a better life and follow and pursue their dreams,” he said during an episode of The Talk in October, continuing: “Whether it be my daughter as an equestrian, my son as a basketball player, my younger son as a golfer, this made a lot more sense for us.”
