Mark Wahlberg can't wait to get hold of the One Direction heart-throb

Mark Wahlberg has admitted that he’s ‘jealous’ of Harry Styles and wants to punch the 1D star.

Mark, 42, reckons that he’s fighting a losing battle with curly-haired Harry, 19, when it comes to the affection of his young daughters, 10-year-old Ella Rae and Grace, who turns 4 tomorrow.

‘Now the girls have turned to One Direction, they don’t care about Dad anymore,’ the actor admitted on US chat show Conan.

‘My four-year-old’s going, “Daddy, I like Harry.” And I’m like, “Well I’m
gonna punch Harry in the nose when I see him.”

‘She pulls out pictures of
him and she’s hiding pictures in the room and I pretend that I’m gonna
rip them up and I get jealous – but if I see that little prick, he’s
gonna get it.’

Of course, Mark was only kidding – he hopes that he can arrange for his daughters to meet One Direction soon.
