ST. CHARLES, Ill. (WTHR) — Actor Donnie Wahlberg made someone's year already.

On Jan. 1, Wahlberg dined at an IHOP in Illinois and left his server a big tip — $2,020.

His wife, Jenny McCarthy, posted the receipt on Twitter.


"... starting 2020 off like the amazing man he is," McCarthy wrote.

Walhberg wrote "Happy New Year" and "2020 Tip Challenge" at the bottom of the receipt.

Hundreds of replies on the tweet thank the actor for his generosity.
