He asked to meet his daughter's boyfriend-- but he didn't get what he was expecting

As many daughters know, the first meeting between your dad and your boyfriend is crucial. But when your dad is Mark Wahlberg, the pressure is on. Luckily, Ella, the 13-year-old daughter of the famous actor, has a boyfriend who knew exactly how to handle it.

As the actor recently recounted on The Graham Norton Show, he told Ella: “I want to meet this kid.”

“And he one-ups me,” he continued. “He brings his mom.”

It looks like all the dads out there might have a new strategy to watch out for!
