The older daughter of Mark Wahlberg is embracing his hip-hop roots. The actor, 51, also discusses how his daughter Ella Rae is paying homage to his time as a former member of Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch through her style while speaking with PEOPLE about luxury shoe manufacturers P448, a business he recently became a strategic investor in.
My daughter was so cool. She purchased a Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch T-shirt from a vintage store, and she has been rocking it nonstop, Wahlberg exclusively reveals to PEOPLE.
The Ted actor says, “She was really rocking [it] with me,” explaining that Ella, 18, “wasn’t doing it to give me a hard time.” Wahlberg continues, “It’s good to have [her] appreciate parts of my past. That was a really sweet little moment for me, in fact.
Early in the 1990s, Wahlberg founded Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch. The ensemble also included Scott Gee, Hector “the Booty Inspector” Barros, DJ-T, and Ashey Ace in addition to the star.
The trio only put out two albums in total, Music for the People in 1991 and You Gotta Believe in 1992. The most well-known song from the trio, “Good Vibrations,” peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1991.
Given that Wahlberg stated during an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that his children had “seen footage of me performing, and they are humiliated,” it appears that his daughter’s perspective on her father’s Marky Mark history has shifted from earlier this year.

Along with Ella, Wahlberg also has a 13-year-old daughter named Grace Margaret, a 16-year-old son named Michael, and a 13-year-old son named Brendan Joseph. The exposed underwear trend was made popular by Wahlberg, who has been known for his flair over the years, but he tells PEOPLE that his four kids find his fashion choices “awful.”

Having fun. Being snarky and always keeping people on their toes is one of the attributes they picked up from me, he continues.
In addition, Wahlberg says that although he “always” has regrets about his appearance, he doesn’t “spend too much time reflecting on the past, [because] I’m simply either in the moment or thinking about what we’re doing next.”
Given his passion for footwear, the self-described “sneakerhead” claims that joining forces with P448 CEO Wayne Kulkin and acquiring a sizeable minority share in his company was a no-brainer.
“He’s a shoe dog, whereas I’m a sneakerhead. He said of Kulkin, “It’s a completely different level, it’s a new thing. I’ve always wanted to work in the shoe industry, so when I discovered a partner I could pretty much tie my wagon to, that’s exactly what we’re doing.
Additionally, Wahlberg claims that his four kids are “sneakerheads too,” which he exploits to his advantage when he collaborates with P448.
“I get to figure out how I can pick their brains and use them best to help me create the coolest shoes that are not only, I think, a classic shoe that the younger generation can embrace, but obviously that people my age could wear, too, and feel comfortable enough that they’re not looking silly by trying to be cooler or be young,” said the designer.
