Mark Wahlberg and his fiancée Rhea Durham had their son Brendan Joseph Wahlberg baptized May 24 in what must have been a sweetly emotional event for the actor known for his tough guy roles.

The couple who plan to marry this summer and have two older children traveled to Dorchester, MA for the ceremony.

It was held at St. Margaret’s Catholic Church which is where Mark’s father Donald Wahlberg’s funeral was held following his February 14, 2008 death.

“Mark’s dad loved his older kids, Ella Rae and Michael,” one of the attendees told

“He didn’t live to meet Brendan so it was important for Mark to take the baby to the church were his dad was eulogized. 

“It was a very loving and moving gesture on Mark’s part.”

The Entourage executive producer and Departed star left Hollywood behind for the intimate event attended by only his family and closest friends.
