“Blue Bloods” star and boy-band legend Donnie Wahlberg took time out on Tuesday, when he turned 52 years old, to express thanks.

Wahlberg expressed his thanks for all of the birthday wishes sent his way. They came to him through social media posts directly to his accounts or from friends. On Tuesday night, he took time out to say thank you. See what he posted on his Twitter account.

Wahlberg gained notoriety as one of the founding members of New Kids on the Block. In recent years, though, a lot of other people have watched him play Detective Danny Reagan on “Blue Bloods” on Friday nights.

He’s been a part of the CBS police drama since its first season. It’s now entering Season 12 and Wahlberg is busy shooting new episodes. Outsiders can see new “Blue Bloods” episodes at 10 p.m. Eastern, 9 p.m. Central, on CBS starting on Oct. 1.

‘Blue Bloods’ Star Offers His Own Birthday Thoughts To His Fans

Earlier on Tuesday, he shared a couple of pictures of himself as a young boy and as a grown man on Instagram. Wahlberg wrote this caption to go along with the photos.

“52 trips around the sun, with no rocket ship, and the ride gets sweeter. If I’ve learned anything in this life, it’s to start each day by saying #ThankYou. Not a single moment is promised to me, but each one is appreciated. Today’s no different, I am #thankful”, Wahlberg wrote.

The post continued, “Thankful to each and every person who has been part of my journey, and to each and every person who has blessed me with the opportunity to be part of your journeys. I would never ever presume to know God’s motives — in his infinite grace and wisdom — but I know that he put all of us in each other’s lives for a reason. I trust that. (And) I believe that. I know that.”

He closes by writing, “I celebrate that blessing today, everyday and forever. Love you all. #thankful to you all. #Love each other. 🙏🏼❤️ #IAM #spreadloveandlovewillspread”.
