When Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy tied the knot on Sunday, at least one famous relative was not on hand for the nuptials.

Mark Wahlberg tweeted his congratulations and posted an Instagram video for the new couple the day before. The actor's rep said his daughter Ella's 11th birthday was scheduled to take place in Los Angeles over the weekend. (The McCarthy/Wahlberg wedding was at Hotel Baker in St. Charles, Illinois, minutes from McCarthy's childhood home.)

TMZ has another story, though. The site reports that Mark Wahlberg and his wife are not especially close with Donnie and are not particularly fond of his new bride. TMZ also wrote that another Walhberg brother, Bobby, wouldn't be an in attendance either, nor would Donnie's mother, because she's afraid of flying. Brother Paul, on the other hand, was expected to attend. HuffPost Entertainment contacted a representative for Mark Wahlberg for comment on the TMZ report; this post will be updated if and when they respond.

Donnie didn't seem too distraught by his brother's absence, returning his well wishes on Twitter.

The Daily Mail reports McCarthy and Wahlberg's ceremony was an intimate affair with their closest friends and family members, lasting just 20 minutes. Famous faces in attendance included former "View" co-host Sherri Shepherd and New Kids on the Block bandmates Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight and Danny Wood.
