Hunky actor Mark Wahlberg's affair with young actress Jessica Alba is getting serious - the pair spent a wild New Year's Eve (31DEC03) together in Miami, Florida.

The Boogie Nights actor, 32, shocked friends when he broke off his engagement to long-term love Rhea Durham, who he reportedly proposed to as she gave birth to his four-month-old daughter ELLA RAE - and was spotted soon after getting cosy with 22-year-old DARK ANGEL star Alba.

The pair began their festive celebrations with a private dinner at the DELANO HOTEL, and saw in the New Year at IAN SCHRAGER's exclusive SHORE CLUB.

An onlooker says, "Mark and Jessica came together. They were very publicly all over each other."

Wahlberg's actor pal Adrien Brody also had a good night for romance at the Shore Club - he spent the evening paying attention to a mystery woman, with the source adding, "They were sitting together, but he wouldn't let photographers take any pictures. Nobody knew who she was."
