Born in Binghamton, New York, Moynahan is a middle child—the only girl—whose Irish Catholic upbringing often echoed the Blue Bloods family and her character Erin Reagan Boyle. "We ate dinner together like the Reagans," she tells Watch, "but it wasn't as combative."

Donnie Wahlberg still gets his groove on

When he's not busy playing detective Danny Reagan on Blue Bloods, Wahlberg often tours with New Kids on the Block, the band that first cast him—and his brother Mark—into the limelight.

Vanessa Ray and Will Estes were unsure about on-screen coupling

Team #Jamko admits that there was hesitation at first when the Blue Bloods producers decided Eddie Janko and Jamie Reagan—who tied the knot in the Season 9 finale—would become an item. Vanessa Ray says "There was pushback because we thought, If you put us together, then where do we go from there?" Will Estes adds that "We were nervous about what it was going to mean once we were together."

But obviously the #Jamko connection worked out just fine

This April, with co-author Amanda Benchley, Bridget Moynahan published her second book, Our Shoes, Our Selves: 40 Women, 40 Stories, 40 Pairs of Shoes. Inspired by an evocative decluttering spree, she collected unique shoe stories and photographs from 40 renowned women, including Barbara Bush, race car driver Danica Patrick, and architect Maya Lin.

We just love her rockin' these Doc Martens!

When Vanessa Ray arrived for her Blue Bloods callback, the casting director got stuck in an elevator and offered to reschedule. The actress shares that her confidence at an all-time high that day and she was ready to perform, so she waited out the two hours it took the fire department to resolve the situation.

Will Estes knows the secret of success

"The drama and gravity of what cops do for a living is always an arm's length away from our stories," Will Estes says of finding inspiration in NYPD's finest. "Maybe that's why our show has gone on for so long. There's so much there at our fingertips in the real world that we can draw from."

Donnie Wahlberg has Windy City roots

Although Blue Bloods films in New York City, Donnie Wahlberg lives in Chicago with his wife, actress Jenny McCarthy, her 16-year-old son Even, and his 17-year-old son Elijah. He flies home every weekend.

Bridget Moynahan has model behavior

She's a natural in the front of the camera. Bridget Moynahan started her career as a fashion model and then got her big acting break when she was cast as Natasha on Sex and the City. The exposure led to an expanded part on the show, and then film roles in Coyote Ugly; I, Robot with Will Smith; and The Sum of All Fears with Ben Affleck.

She know how to strike a pose

"I like mashed potatoes, but you can't eat them for four hours and stay in shape," she says of the Reagan family's weekly dinner scenes, which can take hours to film. "So mostly I just try to move the potatoes around with my fork."

Donnie Wahlberg leads with his heart

When Blue Bloods first revealed the death of Danny Reagan's wife Linda (played by Amy Carlson), Donnie Wahlberg says, "I was really emotional. I sat there remembering the seven years we'd spent working together, thinking, She's not here, and I just let my heart feel what it felt."

These on-screen siblings are the real deal

"Aside from the romance, there are so many times one of our conversations will end up in the story," says Vanessa Ray. "I'll look at a script and be like, We just had this argument or We just talked about that thing!"

Bridget Moynahan trusts her acting instincts and digs deep

"There's a level of vulnerability in some performances I see that I am appreciating more and more," Bridget Moynahan. "Vulnerability has a stigma of being weak, but it's inspiring."

Donnie Wahlberg likes to laugh

Who's the biggest goofball on set? Cast members dish that it's definitely Donnie Wahlberg. The Blue Bloods star admits that he's guilty as charged. "There have been times when Marisa Ramirez (Maria Baez) and I laugh for probably an hour straight. We might tell jokes between takes, or someone goofs up a line ... and we literally have to shut down production for about 20 minutes until we get it out."

Just look at that gorgeous grin!

Fun fact: The actress learned the art of a proper military salute and how to stand at attention from the legendary Tom Selleck himself, who coached her between takes in the hair and makeup trailer.

Will Estes stays humble

"I have these moments that stand out for me that are just as big as booking the job," Will Estes tells Watch about the show's success. "One was watching Mom, and one of the characters said something like, 'I'd love to come, but I can't. It cuts into my Blue Bloods time.' I was like, We made it!"

We love this candid, modest moment

Both on and off-screen, Will Estes and Vanessa Ray are simply adorable. "We're having more fun than ever" and "We're married without the romance" are just a sample of the sweet soundbites the Blue Bloods stars shared in their May-June 2019 Watch interview and cover story.
