Asides from being a great actor, Donnie Wahlberg is even a better dad. The Blue Bloods star is raising a total of three children. He shares two sons, Elijah and Xavier with his ex-wife, Kimberly Fey.

The actor helps his current wife, Jenny McCarthy raise her only child, son Evan. Donnie has gotten used to having a big family as he is one of the 9 siblings himself. He has three half-siblings from his father’s first marriage.

The Blue Bloods star will always be grateful for the bond he shares with his wife, Jenny McCarthy’s 17-year-old son.

In an interview with Usweekly, the 50-year-old opened up on his experience with having Evan as a stepson. He noted that his stepson is affectionate and connects with him in ways he hasn’t with his own kids.

Speaking to the media publication, Donnie said:

So, with Evan, Jenny’s son, I get all this amazing ways to connect with him that I don’t get with my son and Jenny now can sit down with my son and talk about. Yeah. Really unique conversations him.

Back in 2013, McCarthy and Wahlberg met Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen. He started flirting with The Jenny McCarthy Show host and soon after, the two were dating.

The lovebirds got engaged and shortly after said their “I do’s” in front of their friends and family in 2014.

As someone who has been part of 2 different blended families, I love how you have unconditionally accepted and love him as your own. It can be very lonely trying to find where you fit in your new family dynamic. This makes my heart smile ❤️❤️

@Susan Schaefer

You are a cool step dad. Your whole family is just so down to earth. It's not surprising considering how super cool your mom is.

Since 2014, Donnie has welcomed McCarthy’s son with open arms and hasn’t looked back ever since.
