Mark Wahlberg is terrified his children might want to become actors. The Transformers: Age of Extinction star, who has two sons, Michael, eight, and Brendan, five, and two daughters, Ella, 10, and Grace, four, with wife Rhea Durham, doesn't want them to follow in his footsteps. He said: ''I'm extremely nervous about it and want to push them in any other direction, but Ella already says things like, 'I want your job!' '' But he added: ''As long as the kids know they need to get a college education first, and after I teach them all the pros and cons of the business if it's something they still want to do, I'll support them 110 percent.'' The actor is determined to raise his family to be humble and down-to-earth, but admits it's not easy in Hollywood. The 43-year-old star told PEOPLE magazine: ''That's the challenge Rhea and I face every day. I want to give them all the things I never had but make sure they understand it's not normal and that it takes hard work to get what you want.'' Mark isn't looking forward to his children getting older and plans to be tough on his daughters' future boyfriends. He said: ''The boys will be difficult in some ways that the girls won't, but I'm dreading the teenage years with my daughters; it's not going to be easy for them to go on a date. But I'm hoping one nice, nerdy boy will come into each of their lives at the right time when they're twenty-something and they'll be with that person forever.''
