Alma Wahlberg’s Health Situation; Is She Sick?
We don’t know the severity of the situation just yet, as we lack a lot of information. However, Donnie Wahlberg went to visit his mother a few days ago in the beginning of July. He took to Instagram to share a picture of him and his mother sharing a hearty hug. He also wrote a caption briefly explaining her condition.
“I know that so many of you have asked how my mom Alma is doing. During my visit, she didn’t remember much and was often confused, but somehow she was still Alma. She still lights up a room. She still made me smile. She’s still stubborn. And she still loves her baby Donnie”, the caption read.
Donnie does not go into much depth when it comes to explaining his mother’s health condition. However, all of us who have or know somebody who has elderly parents kind of get the idea.
