It would seem as though all of us Blue Bloods fans share something in common with actress Sami Gayle. And that is we all have strong feels about Donnie Wahlberg.
There’s no question that Samie Gayle is known and loved by Blue Bloods fans. The talented actress has been starring in the popular police drama since 2010 as Nicky Reagan-Boyle. She is the daughter of Bridget Moynahan’s character on the show, Erin Reagan. That also makes her the daughter of Tom Selleck’s fan-favorite character, NYPD Police Commissioner Frank Reagan. Incredibly, Gayle first made her appearance on Blue Bloods when she was only 14 years old.
However, it was not Moynahan or Selleck that the now 25-year-old took to social media to gush about on Tuesday. That honor went to another one of Gayle’s co-stars in Donnie Wahlberg. Wahlberg, of course, is one of the main stars in Blue Bloods. He plays seasoned detective Danny Reagan and is the uncle of Gayle’s character.
Donnie Wahlberg is Sami Gayle’s Uncle on ‘Blue Bloods’
Getting started on the show at just 14, it’s safe to say that Sami Gayle has practically grown up on the set of Blue Bloods. As a result, it makes sense that she and Wahlberg have somewhat of an uncle-niece relationship, even in real life. On Tuesday, their loving relationship was put on display when Gayle wished Wahlberg a happy birthday.
“Happiest birthday @donniewahlberg!” Gayle begins her post. “You light up every room that you walk into with your unbelievable heart, and it’s a true blessing to have grown up surrounded by your energy! The world is so lucky that you came into it.”
Just like we were, fans of Blue Bloods were obviously moved by Sami Gayle’s sweet post. One of her followers commented saying, “What a sweet post. Happy Birthday, Donnie!”
“Yes it truly is Sami,” another fan chimed in. “And you both bring so much happiness into the lives that you touch.”
Everyone Loves Donnie Wahlberg
Are we wrong? It’s hard not to be a Donnie Walhberg fan once you get to know the guy. Let’s forget about his awesome detective role on Blue Bloods for just a second. Let’s just look at Donnie Wahlberg the person.
Sami Gayle has every right to boast about her co-star on his birthday. After all, she is right — not only does Wahlberg light up every room he walks into, he lights up any space he’s in — both digital and physical. That could not have been more evident in one of his most recent Twitter posts. The Blue Bloods star once again shared his incredibly infectious outlook with his fans and followers.
