Donnie Wahlberg of Blue Bloods shares many professional and personal thoughts with his fans on social media. He did again on Thursday.
Wahlberg, who plays Detective Danny Reagan on the show, offered some shoutouts to those who are close to him at all times.
Well, that’s what he believes and he shared these words and a photo with his faithful followers on Twitter.
This should not surprise those who know Wahlberg. The actor is known to take time out when shooting scenes on the streets of New York City and taking photos with fans.

His style of interacting with fans even took Blue Bloods co-star Will Estes by surprise. Still, Wahlberg just seems to enjoy these serendipitous moments.
“They’ll show up at the crack of dawn in a crowd and wait half a day, a full day, just to see him and say hi,” Estes said in an interview with CinemaBlend. “And Donnie is something that I’ve never seen before and experienced. He just completely engages with people.
“It’s really incredible,” he said. “I almost didn’t know you could do that before I saw Donnie do it. But, you know, he’ll go out and talk to people and he’s friends with them and he’s one of the most engaging people I’ve ever seen with his fans.”
Besides his work on the CBS police drama, Wahlberg also stays busy with his band New Kids on the Block. He’s known to call his fans “Blockheads” in a fun, respectful way. The fans don’t seem to mind.
So, he’s been a part of the CBS show since its first season. Donnie Wahlberg actually presented now-co-star Bridget Moynahan with an opportunity to join the cast. If you watch Blue Bloods, then you know she’s also been around as Erin Reagan.
