Mark Wahlberg stunned fans at the Comic-Com comic book convention at the weekend (26Jul08) after revealing his marriage plans.
The Planet of The Apes star was at the four-day event promoting upcoming film Max Payne when things got personal and the actor explained he was planning to wed his longtime girlfriend Rhea Durham, who is expecting the couple's third child.
He said, "We continue to grow in our relationship and I think we have a much better chance at succeeding and staying together."
But the 37-year-old admits he hasn't always been keen on the idea of marriage: "I wasn't prepared to be married at 20 or 30," adding he's now ready for "committing to really making it work constantly and all the other things that go into building a solid foundation."
Meanwhile, the actor has confirmed his wife-to-be is due to give birth to their third child "around the third of September". The couple already has a four-year-old daughter, Ella, and a two-year-old son, Michael.
