Alma Wahlberg from Wahlburgers on A&E

Alma Wahlberg

Alma is the matriarch of the Wahlberg family. As the mother of nine children, she has seen it all. Alma worked as a bank clerk and nurse’s aide to make ends meet while raising her children in tight quarters on the Dorchester streets where she grew up.

She now spends her days working as a greeter and hostess at her sons’ restaurants where she shares her infectious laugh and sense of humor with everyone who comes to dine. While Paul runs Wahlburgers and Alma Nove, an ode to Alma and her nine children, it’s no secret among the staff who the real boss is.

After all of her sons’ success, the proud mother always makes sure family still comes first.
