Now, unlike her famous brother, Tracey is not a famous actor, businessman, model, producer, or anything like that. She came into the limelight only as the celebrity sister of Mark Wahlberg.
She is the sister of successful and famous brothers but manages to maintain a low-profile life. She lives a beautiful and happy married life with her husband and three children.
Do you want to know more about her? Let’s take a look.
Who Is Her Famous Brother?
We said before Tracey came to the limelight as the sister of American actor Mark Wahlberg. Most fans know a thing or two about him.
Born in Boston, Massachusetts in June 1971, Mark is a singer, actor, and producer. Fun fact: while most fans recognize him as an actor, he actually came to prominence as a member of the rap groupMarky Mark and the Funky Bunch. He was also a Calvin Klein model before starting a successful film career.
Mark is the youngest of nine children, two of whom are also actors, Robert Wahlberg and Donnie Wahlberg. His mother, Alma Elaine Wahlberg, worked as a bank clerk and a nurse aide. His father, Donald Edmond Wahlberg Sr. was a delivery driver and Korean War veteran.
His parents divorced when he was still a young child in 1982. Following the divorce, Mark and his siblings spent time between the two parents. He has Irish ancestry through his paternal grandmother and Swedish ancestry through his father. Mark was raised a Catholic.
In the 1990s, he founded the boy band Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch. At the time, he was only 13 years of age, and he was also one of the original members of New Kids on the Block.
Their single Good Vibrations peaked at Number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. And their second single, Wildside, peaked at Number 5 on the Hot Singles Sales Chart.
Thanks to the popularity of his boy band and the music video for Good Vibrations, Mark landed a job as a model for Calvin Klein underwear. In some advertisements, he was accompanied by model Kate Moss.
Mark made his acting debut in the movie The Substitute in 1993. Following his appearance in the movie, the famous actor dropped his Marky Mark nickname. His big-screen debut came in the Danny DeVito film Renaissance Man in 1994. In 1995, Mark starred alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in The Basketball Diaries.
During the next period, the American actor appeared in movies like The Perfect Storm, Four Brothers, The Italian Job, Invincible, Three Kings, Boogie Nights, and more.
From 2004 to 2011, he served as the executive producer of the HBO television series Entourage, which was loosely based on his experience in Hollywood.
Mark finally received an Academy Award nomination after portraying a police detective in Martin Scorsese’s movie The Departed.
After his success in Hollywood, Mark founded the Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation, helping to improve the quality of life for inner-city youth through collaboration with other organizations.
Here is a fun fact. Mark got his G.E.D diploma at 42 in 2013. As a father, he wanted to show his children the value of education and school. And since he dropped out of school when he was 14, he came back and got his diploma.
In July 2010, Mark got his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Do All The Wahlbergs Have The Same Mother And Father?
Alma Wahlberg is the mother to the famous Wahlberg family, and she had nine children. Those are Michelle Wahlberg, Paul Wahlberg, Arthur Wahlberg, Jim Wahlberg, Tracey Wahlberg, Robert Wahlberg, Donnie Wahlberg, Debbie Wahlberg, and Mark.
She was married to Donald Wahlberg but later got a divorce. Her ex-husband passed away in 2008. People began showing interest in the Wahlberg family after Mark got famous.
Mark and Donnie are the two most prominent faces of the family. Alma became a celebrity in her own right through the reality show Wahlburgers, which ran from 2014 to 2019. It chronicled the family’s work at their Boston burger joint of the same name.
In the pilot episode, one of the main questions was each son wanted to know who was her favorite. And Alma responded, “Whoever I’m with at the time”.
Now let’s talk a bit about Tracey Wahlberg’s bio, Mark’s low-key sister. She was also born in Boston, Massachusetts, to her mother Alma, and her father Donald Edmond Wahlberg.
She has seven siblings, with two of them being actors. She also has three half-siblings from her father’s second marriage. Those are Donna Wahlberg, Buddy Wahlberg, and Scott Wahlberg.
Donald is of Swedish-German descent while Alma is of mixed ethnicity including French, Irish, English, and Canadian. That means Tracey has an American nationality, but her ethnicity is also mixed.
People often show interest in her life, despite the fact she is trying to keep a low profile. So far, Tracey hasn’t revealed facts about her early life, childhood, educational background, or professional career.
We do know she is married to Michael Marcarelli, and they have three sons together.
She has remained private since her early teenage days. Tracey has always been shy and secretive and doesn’t appreciate the limelight.
She lives a happy married life with her husband Michael Marcarelli and their children.
Is She On Social Media?
This might come as a surprise, but Tracey is present on social media. She has a profile on Facebook, going by Tracey Marcarelli. She is also active on Instagram, but her profile is private. As you can see, she does not enjoy public exposure.
On the other hand, her brother Mark Wahlberg has more than 20 million followers on Instagram.
Because there is little to no information about Tracey, we cannot find much about her professional career, earnings, salary, or net worth.
Her professional life is hidden and she likes to keep it that way. But like other siblings of Mark, they enjoy the wealth he has accumulated over the years. At one point, he was the highest-paid actor in Hollywood. That was during the time he was part of the Transformers franchise.
As of April 2023, Mark has a net worth of more than $225 million. And the Wahlberg family owns a restaurant in Boston. Tracey is settled.
