Mark Wahlberg, Joey Fatone are dads again



Tbd-joeyfatone011410 We've got to catch up on our baby news, so let's start with Mark Wahlberg, who is a dad for the fourth time. We really should refrain from saying he's got his own new funky bunch these days (but we wrote it anyway).

Margaret Grace was born to Mark's wife Rhea Durham at 6:35 p.m. Monday at Cedars-Sinai, the L.A. Times reports. She joins sister Ella, 6; and brothers Michael, 4; and Brendan, 16 months.

More compelling is that Joey Fatone is a dad for the second time, since wife Kelly gave birth to Kloey Alexandra that same day in Orlando.

Kelly has been fighting methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase, a genetic condition that landed her in the hospital with blood clots in her lungs, and could have meant birth defects like Down's Syndrome for her baby. Kelly had to go to the hospital and was induced two weeks before her due date.

Good news, though: "The blood clots have broken up, Kelly's doing fine and Kloey is awesome," Joey tells People. Kloey joins sister Briahna, 8. "I'm thrilled. I'm just so happy that everyone's healthy." Aw, it's nice to hear some good news, isn't it?
