Donnie Wahlberg - Donnie Wahlberg: My Mother Wants Me To Compete In Dancing With The Stars

Donnie Wahlberg's mother wants him to compete in 'Dancing With The Stars'.

The New Kids On The Block singer - who is currently on a joint tour with his band and the Backstreet Boys - revealed his mum Alma Elaineis constantly encourages him to take part in the celebrity dance show because she thinks he has the potential to win it.

However, Donnie is worried his boyband background may give him an unfair advantage.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''My mother wants me to take part in 'Dancing With The Stars'. She's always telling me I should compete. Maybe I will but I don't know, I think I could do pretty well. I might have an unfair advantage though because of all of the dancing I've been doing on the recent NKOTBSB tour.''

Donnie, 42, has managed to find success in both music and acting and revealed he loved taking a break from his day job, on TV series 'Blue Bloods' to go on tour but always relishes getting back to acting.

He added: ''I've got the best of both worlds. When I get sick of acting, I can take a break and go back to New Kids and when I need a break from touring I go back to acting. It's perfect.''
