‘Blue Bloods’: Donnie Wahlberg Gives Fans a Look at Danny Reagan’s Growth Over the Years in New Pics

by Quentin Blount

Do you believe in fate? We do after Blue Bloods star Donnie Wahlberg posted a photo from his childhood. It looks like he was always destined to play Danny Reagan.

Donnie Wahlberg, of course, has an impressive background that spans the world of music, film, and television. But most recently, he has been starring on Blue Bloods since 2014. The show is now officially entering its 12 season, and Wahlberg is still playing his role of Danny Reagan. Reagan is a seasoned detective with the New York City Police Department. He’s the son of NYPD Police Commission Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) and the brother of New York County assistant district attorney Erin Reagan (Bridget Moynahan) and NYPD police officer Jamie Reagan (Will Estes).

Those who watch the show religiously like we do know that law enforcement runs through the veins of the Reagan family. And based on a picture Wahlberg posted on Friday night, it seems like it has been running through his veins since he was just a little boy.

Right as the season 12 premiere of Blue Bloods began, Wahlberg took to social media to show fans just how far he has come over the years. The snap shows him back in the day as a young kid striking a pose that we have seen far too often on the police drama.

“BlueBloods LETS GOOOO! @BlueBloods_CBS” Wahlberg captioned the photo.

“Yay! Glad #BlueBloods is back for another season,” one person wrote. “Can’t wait to watch it tonight and can’t wait to see what this season has in store for us this year!!”

Meanwhile, other Blue Bloods fans had the same kind of feelings that we did when seeing the photo. It looks as if even as a kid, Donnie Wahlberg knew that one day he would grow up and play a popular detective.
