Mark Wahlberg’s bunch just got a bit bigger.

The actor and wife Rhea Durham welcomed their fourth child — daughter Grace Margaret Wahlberg — to the family on Monday, Access Hollywood has confirmed.

Wahlberg and Durham have three other children – Ella, 6; Michael, 3; and Brendan, 16 months.

The couple announced the pregnancy in October – one year after Durham gave birth to son Brendan.

Although Wahlberg, who currently stars in the drama “The Lovely Bones,” is the youngest of nine children, don’t expect his own brood to grow that big.

“Four is enough,” he previously told People. “We were all raised with a lot of love. But we didn’t get the kind of attention I think that we all needed. My parents had to provide to put food on the table. My mission in life is to raise my kids right. With all the success I’ve had in the world, if I fail at that, my life means nothing.”

However, the 38-year-old actor admitted it’s his wife who will make the final call on how many kids they will have.

“My wife is allowed to pick the magic number … as many as she wants to have,” he added. “What I want to do is I want to raise my kids right I want to give them the world. But I also want them to appreciate it.”
