Donnie Wahlberg Of Blue Bloods pays A heartfelt Tribute To Tom Selleck In Honor Of His Significant Milestone

Donnie Wahlberg, star of BLUE BLOODS, took to social media to pay tribute and express his love for his beloved co-star.

Blue Bloods, a CBS hit drama, followed the Reagans, an Irish Catholic family who all work in law enforcement. Donnie Wahlberg, who played Danny Reagan, took to Instagram to wish his on-screen father Tom Selleck a happy birthday.

Wahlberg captioned two photos of himself with Selleck with a moving tribute to the legendary actor.

"Happy Birthday to my TV dad, and real-life friend and father figure, Tom Selleck!" it said.

"I'm grateful to have you in my life, 'dad,' and feel blessed to play a small part in the amazing legacy that is your life!" Dad, I adore you! Every time, Son!"

"(ps, I know you won't see this because you probably don't know what @instagram is, but that's fine because I don't mind sharing with the world that you mean a lot to me)."

The two have shared a screen since Blue Bloods first aired in 2010, and after 12 seasons, neither actor has shown signs of slowing down.

Despite initial speculation about Selleck's departure, the 77-year-old actor seemingly told that he'd play Frank Reagan until the end of the show.

"I don't think there's an endpoint, I think there's a lot of life in the show, as long as you let your characters grow and get older," he said.

Despite the fact that his character was offered a new role outside of the NYPD, this is exciting news for fans of the beloved police commissioner.
