Mark Wahlberg congratulated his brother Donnie Wahlberg via Twitter and Instagram on his wedding to former The View host Jennie McCarthy, which he is unable to attend Sunday.

Mark Wahlberg Skipping Brother's Wedding

Mark, 43, can’t attend his brother Donnie’s wedding because of a prior commitment – his daughter Ella’s 11th birthday, according to E! News. The actor will be filming Ted in Boston Tuesday on her birthday, so wanted to be able to spend time with her over the weekend. In lieu of attending the nuptials, Mark sent out a congratulatory tweet to the happy couple.

Mark, his wife Rhea Durham and their four children – Ella, Grace, Brendan and Michael – also recorded a video for Donnie and McCarthy.

While Ella’s birthday is to blame according to Mark’s reps, other sources are saying that the Transformers: Age of Extinction star and his wife aren’t fans of McCarthy, reported TMZ. Bobby Wahlberg also won’t be in attendance for the family wedding, though Paul Wahlberg reportedly will be present.

Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy, who became engaged in April, are marrying Sunday at a historic hotel in St. Charles, according to The Courier News.
