Mark Wahlberg: My Kids Only Have Water In Their Lunches

Besides acting Mark Wahlberg has another career. It’s owning water brand Aqua Hydrate. The actor says that his children, Ella, 8, Michael, 6, Brendan, 3, and Grace, 2, only drink that water.

He tells Parade, “I fly the water everywhere since when I drink other water now, I can taste the acid. And my kids won’t drink any other type of water. We want to have the water in all the school systems and have them drinking Aqua Hydrate instead of sodas.”

The Contraband star adds, “My kids are allowed to drink orange juice or lemonade in the morning or lunch but after that, they only have water. They only have water in their lunches. My three-year old can’t even pronounce it but he tries to ask for it. They love it. We used to buy Poland Spring or Sparkletts. You can surround them with other drinks and they won’t touch them now.”

Getting into the water business wasn’t planned.

He explained, “I got into this by accident. I had no desire to be in the beverage business.

“I was training for The Fighter and a friend brought this guy in with a case of water. He started telling me about reverse osmosis and all of this organic stuff and I said, ‘Dude, I don’t know what you’re talking about. Leave the water and I’ll try it.’ I started drinking the water—I usually drink a gallon or a gallon and a half of water a day— and I immediately recovered quicker, started running eight instead of seven miles a day. So I said I love the product but wasn’t in the beverage business so I couldn’t help them. But then I started talking to people and decided I wanted to get involved somehow.”

You won’t see Mark pose in ad campaigns like Jennifer Aniston does for SmartWater.

Probably not,” he said. “I don’t think anyone wants to see me on a billboard anymore. But we do want the top athletes and we’ll have very interesting people endorsing the product.”

We call the mode that shuts off all radios "airplane mode". What do we call a phone mode that blocks tracking, requires SSL & uses Tor?
