You can break a Guinness World Record for all sorts of things, we all know this. However, did you know you could even break a Guinness World Record for the number of selfies taken in a three-minute time span? Well, now you know as Donnie Wahlberg, star of Blue Bloods, pulled it off on a cruise.

In a new Instagram post for Throwback Thursday, Wahlberg took us back to a time when he broke the world record with 122 different folks.

Wahlberg wrote for the caption, “TBT To that time me and The Blockhead Family broke the @guinnessworldrecords for selfies on the @nkotb cruise!

Donnie Wahlberg on ‘Blue Bloods’

Wahlberg has been there from the beginning on Blue Bloods. Playing Danny Reagan as one of the fan favorites has been a great sense of enjoyment for so many fans of the CBS drama. Danny can be difficult, though, as fans of the show can attest to. It’s not easy being his partner all that often, that is also for sure.

Wahlberg told CBS, “The beauty of having had these different partners is that they each bring something different to react to. Jennifer made boring lines hysterical; she made throwaway lines authentic. She was a great partner, and is a great actor and friend. When Marisa came along, I knew immediately she would be a lifelong friend. Marisa came in, and she was just a solid person and actor, a solid partner on camera and off.”

The right kind of partner is critical for Danny. On shows like Blue Bloods, it is imperative the duos work well with one another as Wahlberg confirms they do.

Donnie Wahlberg also has a great relationship with costar Bridget Moynahan. He said of their relationship, “We have a great friendship. We did a pilot together in 2008 that I executive-produced called Bunker Hill. When the Blue Bloods offer came along, I immediately called her, and I said, “You have to play the sister.” She said, “I already passed.” She was worried it was going to shoot in Canada, and she had a young child and didn’t want to have to commute. I said, “I guarantee you, we won’t go to Canada … because Tom Selleck is never going to do a show in Canada. Knowing him, he will fight to do it in New York, because he wants it to be authentic.”

New episodes of Blue Bloods can be seen on CBS.
