Mark Wahlberg has spoken about how he plans to treat his wife Rhea Durham for Mother’s Day this weekend.

The 43-year-old Transformers: Age of Extinction actor is married to model Rhea Durham and the couple share four children together—Ella, 11, Michael, nine, Brendan, six, and Grace, five.

Even though Mark has an estimated net worth of $200 million, the wealthy star chooses to transport his family around in a $30,000 Toyota Sienna, which features impressive rims, tinted windows and DIRECTV satellite entertainment.

“I like my car because it’s very unassuming,” he revealed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“I have tons of bags of Lifesavers. My kids always want to go in there — they call it the mint mobile — and they want to drive to school in that so they can have mints before they go to school. My kids love it. My wife will not get in it for anything.”

America is celebrating Mother’s Day this Sunday and Mark has several treats in store for his other half Rhea this weekend.

He’s managed to get his entire family involved in expressing their appreciation for Rhea.

“She’s probably gonna see this before Mother’s Day. Well the one thing I wanted to do I wanted to do something special from each child,” Mark explained of his plans for her. “So my wife loves gardenias. So I sent her a big thing of gardenias from our oldest daughter. And then yesterday we sent them from my son Michael, today from Brendan, tomorrow from Grace. And then I’m gonna send one that’s five times the size from me on Saturday. So maybe she’ll let me go play golf. I’m gonna take her to Clippers game tomorrow, she loves basketball.”
