Last night (Dec. 14, 2016), the cast and crew dressed up for the premiere of Patriot’s Day in Boston, including the film’s star Mark Wahlberg. Also on hand was the actor’s proud mother Alma Wahlberg who revealed to Entertainment Tonight that, prior to the premiere, Mark surprised her with a new car!
“I looked out my front door today and there was this brand new car sitting out there with the big red bow on it!” Alma proclaimed, beaming.
And it turns out that when it comes to a new ride, Alma had no interest in a luxury automobile. “He bought me a brand new Hyundai Azera, my favorite car in the world!”
Her A-list son shared that his mother had been eyeing the car for some time and with the new movie coming out, he thought it was the perfect time.
“She was in love with this Hyundai. She kept asking me, and I kept saying no, and she told my sis that I was getting one anyway, so then I was like, ‘Alright, Let’s just get it for her,'” Mark said on the red carpet. “I wanted it to be a surprise. If you’re going to do it, you gotta do it right.”
