Part of what makes “Blue Bloods” such an incredible show is the connection between cast members both on and off-screen.
Actor Donnie Wahlberg embodied that connection in the sweetest post to his co-star Marisa Ramirez. Wahlberg’s character Danny Reagan and Ramirez’s character Maria Baez work together as partners for the NYPD. Over the last nine and a half years, the two have grown closer as characters and castmates on set.
On Sept. 15, Ramirez celebrated her 44th birthday, and Wahlberg put together a sweet video compilation for the “Blue Bloods” star. The two-and-a-half-minute video features emotional moments between Reagan and Baez, funny scenes, witty exchanges, and hilarious bloopers on set. He says since her birthday fell on “Way Back Wednesday” (sorry, what?), it felt right to reminisce over the near-decade they’ve spent together.
“Happy Birthday Marisa Ramirez!” Wahlberg starts off in his caption.
“I don’t call it work because it’s been nothing but a joy for the last almost decade. If you think it looks like we have fun, and have each other’s back, it’s because we always do,” the “Blue Bloods” star continued. “Onscreen and off — I could not ask for a more incredible, trustworthy, and absolutely hilarious friend/partner.”
Wahlberg goes on to make a cheeky comment about how long they’ve been working together and how he hopes “Blue Bloods” continues in the future.
“Have the happiest of Birthdays my dear friend (not sure how you got the day off on yours and I didn’t on mine but whatevahhhhh),” Wahlberg concluded. “Here’s to another ten seasons. Then we will call it ‘Gray Bloods.’ Well, I’ll probably call it Bald Bloods by then but whatevahhhhh! 🤣🤣🤣🤣 Love and Light always!”
