Rhea Wahlberg is an international fashion model, a mother of four, wife of a-list actor Mark Wahlberg, and now she can add entrepreneur to that list.
Rhea has created a line of handbags that are both stunning and affordable. The line is called "Ella Grace by Rhea Wahlberg."
"I literally sit down at my breakfast table and design everything. I do it by pencil,” she said. “The bucket bag is the 'Rhea bag' and that’s probably my favorite one. I really love the red one with the gold studs."
In-depth news coverage of the Greater Boston Area.
The line is named after her two daughters, and it’s designed with a mom's busy life in mind. Many of the bags are crossbody versions, specifically made to be hands-free.
When asked what it’s like to be a member of the Wahlberg family, she says, "It's fun! Everyone supports everyone so much in Mark’s family, which is one of the things I love."
Rhea says people may be surprised to learn she’s a die-hard Patriots fan. In fact, she calls Robert Kraft her "secret boyfriend."
"He's amazing. I love him. He's just so charming, and such a sweet man," she said.
When asked what Mark thinks about that, she said, “he thinks it’s hilarious because they are very close.”
Mark recently gushed about his beloved wife on the red carpet of the Boston premiere of his new movie “Instant Family,” saying of Rhea, “She’s my hero. She does it all. The kids aren’t as grateful as they should be but they will be later on. I make sure she knows how much I appreciate her, and how grateful I am that she is the machine she is.”
So what does he think of her bags?
"I don't have one myself, but they’re fantastic," Mark said.
