‘Blue Bloods’ Star Donnie Wahlberg Springs Into Action in Behind the Scenes Pics

by Leanne Stahulak

“Blue Bloods” star Donnie Wahlberg looks fierce and determined in these new behind-the-scenes photos from Season 12 of the hit CBS crime drama.

Daily Mail revealed the photos earlier today. They show Wahlberg with his co-star Marisa Ramirez, the two of them springing into action on set. Wahlberg plays NYPD Detective Danny Reagan, son of police commissioner Frank Reagan. Ramirez stars as his partner, Maria Baez.

In the photos, Wahlberg points a gun at an unknown assailant while Ramirez reaches for her gun holster. We then see Wahlberg run after the person, while Ramirez stays behind to comfort a distressed victim or bystander. It wouldn’t be “Blue Bloods” without a thrilling chase through the streets of New York.

Hopefully, we’ll find out what the altercation means soon enough. The latest season of the show drops Friday, Oct.1, exactly one month from today. In the meantime, we’ll keep soaking up all the behind-the-scenes footage we can.

‘Blue Bloods’ Star Donnie Wahlberg Celebrates Wedding Anniversary While Filming

“Blue Bloods” filming certainly takes up a lot of time out of Wahlberg’s schedule. But he works around it for things like New Kids on the Block concerts, “The Masked Singer” appearances, and surprising his wife Jenny McCarthy with a trip home for their seventh wedding anniversary.

The Wahlbergs tied the knot on August 31, 2014, in St. Charles, Illinois. The couple lives in the Chicago suburb when they’re not away for filming or other appearances. For all intents and purposes, Wahlberg should’ve been away in New York working on “Blue Bloods.” But to McCarthy’s surprise, he flew home to participate in an anniversary custom for the couple.

Every year, McCarthy and Wahlberg renew their wedding vows. The same pastor that married them, Reverend Ray McElroy, conducts the ceremony. This year, Wahlberg posted the sweetest photos from the vow renewal ceremony on his Instagram page, along with a touching message.

“#HappyAnniversary Jenny! Seven years — no itch!” the “Blue Bloods” star wrote in the caption. “I love you more than ever, Mrs. Wahlberg. To be blessed with a partner whose goal is to make sure that I love myself more and more each day — is to be truly blessed. Thank you for holding me down, while always holding my kite string and letting me fly. You are my soul mate in every way. My heart is overflowing with gratitude, appreciation and unconditional love, for you. I love you Lady.

He then thanked McElroy “for helping me surprise my wife again (got ya baby) and for gracing us with your wisdom and your blessing. ‘Seven = Completion. Perfection’. So grateful to be able to ‘renew’ gods amazing blessing for another year. On to forever. HappyAnniversaryJenny!”
