It's official! Mark Wahlberg graduates from high school

Washington, Sept. 17 (ANI): Mark Wahlberg, who dropped out of school in the ninth grade, has revealed that he has successfully bagged his high school diploma.

The 42-year-old actor told People Magazine that his four children served as the biggest motivation for him because he didn't want his kids to think that they have an option to leave their education, just because their father did.

The 'Ted' star, who took online classes, asserted that getting his diploma is a huge accomplishment and relief for him.

Wahlberg added that he did think at one point that he should have completed his education when he was actually in high school, as it's so much harder at his age to go back to studies. (ANI)
