Xavier Alexander Wahlberg Wiki Bio
Xavier Alexander Wahlberg was born in Los Angeles, California on 4 March 1993 – his zodiac sign is Aries, and he holds American nationality. He’s a musician, but also known for being the son of the famous actor Donnie Wahlberg and his ex-wife, Kimberly Fay, and the nephew of the action movie star, Mark Wahlberg.
Early life, family and education
Xavier Alexander grew up in Los Angeles alongside his younger brother Elijah Hendrix. When Xavier was born, his parents weren’t yet married, but lived together, and tied the knot in a private ceremony on 20 August 1999. The two separated in 2008, after more than 15 years of a relationship and nine years of marriage. Their divorce was finalized in 2010, with both former spouses citing ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the main reason for their separation.
Following the divorce, Kimberly Fay received full custody of Xavier’s brother, Elijah, while Xavier was left out of the legal battle for custody, as he was already of age. His father, Donnie, stayed on good terms with his former wife and their two sons. He remarried in 2014, to the actress and comedienne Jenny McCarthy, while Kim hasn’t married again.
Xavier matriculated from a local private high school in 2011, but it’s not known if he attended college. His parents tried to keep him and his brother out of the public eye during their childhoods, and Xavier seems still to be maintaining that kind of lifestyle.
Career and personal life
Due to Xavier’s desire for a quiet life, not a lot is known about his career. According to his father, he used to be, and perhaps still is, a member of a death metal band.
‘My oldest son, I’m not gonna say his name because he’d be mad at me if he happens to see this. But he’s in a band. He’s actually in a band. They play very dark, hardcore music, mosh pits, and the whole thing.’, Donnie revealed in an interview he gave for VH1 in 2019.
This revelation surprised many of Donnie’s fans, as he is known for the pop hits he released as a member of New Kids on the Block. Furthermore, some expected that Xavier and his brother Elijah might follow in their father’s and uncle’s footsteps and venture into acting, but that doesn’t seem to be the case either. Interestingly enough, some people think that Xavier has had a role in the third installment of the “Twilight” movie franchise, but it’s a common misconception, as he is sometimes confused with the actor Xavier Samuel.
While Xavier’s brother, Elijah, boasts more than 30,000 Instagram followers, Xavier has limited his presence on social media, and is only active on a private Instagram account, which he solely uses to communicate with his friends and family.
Not a lot is known about his relationship status, but it’s suspected that he’s currently single and hasn’t been married.

Xavier is 28 years old. He has short brown hair and brown eyes, he’s 5ft 9ins (1.75m) tall, and weighs around 165lbs (75kgs).

Donnie was born the eighth of nine siblings to Alma Elaine and Donald Edmond Wahlberg Senior; he is of Swedish, English, Irish and French-Canadian ancestry. His younger brother, Mark, is also a big name in the entertainment industry, starting his career as the leader of the 1990’s hip-hop group Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch.
Donnie entered the music industry when he was only 15 years old. He was discovered by Maurice Starr, the former manager of the R&B group New Edition, who wanted to create a counterpart act, after parting ways with the band.
Donnie was initially joined by his brother Mark, but he ended up leaving a few months later. Donnie and his manager then embarked on a search for new band members, and Jordan Knight, Danny Wood, Joey McIntyre and Jonathan Knight joined the group in 1985, making the final line-up of New Kids on the Block.
The band released their self-titled debut album in April 1986, which was almost exclusively written and produced by Maurice Starr. The album failed to capture a wide audience, but the band stayed persistent in their efforts to make music, which would eventually top the worldwide charts. Their follow-up 1988 album “Hangin’ Though” initially went almost unnoticed by the audience, until the single “Please Don’t Go Girl” started being played by radio stations across the US. It eventually hit the #10 spot at the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and became the band’s first hit, launching them into stardom.
New Kids on the Block released their third studio album, “Step by Step”, in May 1990.
