Are Donnie Wahlberg And Marisa Ramirez From Blue Bloods Friends?

On "Blue Bloods," Danny Reagan (Donnie Wahlberg) and Maria Baez (Marisa Ramirez) are both NYPD detectives who have each earned the Medal of Valor for their combined actions. Fans of the show will be pleased to know that Wahlberg and Ramirez became instant friends when they first met.
In an interview, Wahlberg joked that he doesn't want his character getting romantically involved with Baez because it means they would see each other less, and that he would miss his friend. Ramirez once said, "We just hit it off from day one and have developed such a friendship from that moment till now."
When asked on “The Talk” if they ever get the giggles during intense scenes, the two actors immediately started laughing, illustrating that they have fun working together. Judging by these comments, it seems that their chemistry on "Blue Bloods" is, in fact, a direct product of their off-screen friendship.
