(showbizspy.com) - Mark Wahlberg will marry his longtime girlfriend Rhea Durham in August, the actor announced Tuesday.

The couple have been together since 2001, and have three children -- Ella, 4; Michael, 2; and Brendan Joseph, born September 16, 2008.

Says Mark, "We're talking about August. It will be in the Catholic Church somewhere."

Mark also revealed that he and Rhea are thinking about more children.

He tells People magazine, "I'm the youngest of nine. When the kids are good, we want eight or nine, When they're bad, we [want] to stop at three."

The 37-year-old recently revealed his biggest fear: failing as a father.

He said, "My fear is failing as a father, as a friend, as a son. I have a lot of responsibility and a lot of people counting on me.

"And I know God has put me in this position to put back and try to create some opportunities for some others, show kids there is another way."
