CBS’s “Blue Bloods” Star Donnie Wahlberg recently celebrated with the BlockHeads and we’re so happy for him and the rest of New Kids On The Block!!
Donnie took to Instagram to talk about his experience in a long lengthy post.
“Its been a week since #BlockCon and it’s taken me a week to try to gather my thoughts, and put them into words, but I still haven’t quite figured out where to begin when it comes to describing the magic that I experienced last weekend! So, maybe I’ll start at the beginning. I wasn’t quite sure what I was getting myself into by diving into this convention, since I’d never attended a fan convention — let alone helped organize and produce one! I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have a few sleepless nights (and a lot more uncertainty than I’m used to feeling when in the creative mode), in the lead up to this endeavor. But that uncertainty could never measure up to the levels of excitement that I felt everyday — knowing that we were about to experience something, with our Blockheads, that we’d never experienced before — a new first, if you will — after all these years together! So, despite any angst, I simply continued to trust in the three principles that always guide me when it comes to conceptualizing for our Blockhead Family:
1. If the Blockheads show up, it will all work out!
2. Believe in the magic that always happens when you get together with your bandmates and the greatest fans in the history or music!
3. Whenever you think you’ve reached the limit of what you can give to the Blockheads — GIVE MORE! More songs. More memorabilia. More panels. More selfies. More energy. More effort. More passion. More laughs. More love.
I’d say, in the end, we somehow managed to surprise each other again! Our collective energies “crashed” and the magic happened! We somehow managed to make what is old — brand new! We somehow managed to find that joy, that @nkotb and our #Blockhead family always seem to find when we’re together! I’m so thankful to all who attended and helped put it together! To the genius of @jaredaripaul & @wearefaculty! To all the vendors & businesses in Rosemont who welcomed us with open arms! To the moderators & creative team who helped tell the story! To those who worked tirelessly to help create another epic event for Blockheads to celebrate, for years to come! I love you Blockhead Family! I can’t wait to do it again! 🤖❤️♾💫✨🤟🏼”
We love how much Donnie loves his fans!
Blue Bloods stars Tom Selleck, Donnie Wahlberg, Bridget Moynahan, Will Estes, Len Cariou, Marisa Ramirez, and Vanessa Ray. Recurring players include Abigail Hawk, Gregory Jbara, Robert Clohessy, Steven Schirripa, Will Hochman, Rosyln Ruff, Ian Quinlan, Stacy Keach, Peter Hermann, and Stephanie Kurtzuba. The show revolves around the Reagans, a multi-generational family of New York City cops that’s dedicated to law enforcement. Patriarch Frank Reagan (Selleck) is the New York Police Commissioner and runs his department as diplomatically as he runs his family. His unapologetically bold father, Henry (Cariou), previously served a stint as Chief. A source of pride and concern for Frank is his eldest son, Danny (Wahlberg), a seasoned detective, family man, an Iraq War vet. Danny sometimes uses dubious tactics to solve cases with his partner, Detective Maria Baez (Ramirez). Frank’s daughter, Erin (Moynahan), is a New York Assistant District Attorney. Frank’s youngest is Jamie (Estes), a Harvard Law graduate and the family’s “golden boy.” He passed on a lucrative future in law and follows in the family footsteps as a cop. Eddie Janko (Ray) is Jamie’s wife and a fellow officer.
