Jenny McCarthy, the former Playmate and current The View co-host, is engaged to actor and New Kids on the Block member Donnie Wahlberg.
Jenny McCarthy, Donnie Wahlberg Engaged
McCarthy, 41, made the announcement and showed off her new ring on The View Wednesday morning. "I just got engaged," she gushed to her co-hosts, showing off her yellow sapphire ring before telling them how Wahlberg popped the question with the help of her 11-year-old son Evan.
"This weekend I was sitting with Donnie … and he went into the other room and out came Evan with a card that said 'Will' and he handed it to me," she said. "Then Evan ran away and Evan came in with a card that said 'You.' … I just started crying and then Evan came back into the room with the word 'Marry' — but spelled wrong."
"The last time, Donnie came out with Evan and Donnie's shirt said 'Me' with a question mark … and he got down on his knee," McCarthy continued. "Of course, I said 'Yes.' In that moment Evan yelled, 'I have another dad!' and it made all of us cry."
In November, mere months after McCarthy and Wahlberg began dating, the TV personality, who was previously married to John Mallory Asher, admitted that although she’d previously sworn off a second marriage, she’d marry her current beau.
"I've said on every interview that I was like, 'Never get married again ever,' and, of course, you never say never,” McCarthy told Bethenny Frankel on her talk show. “I think [Donnie] would be an amazing husband, so if he does [propose], I would for sure say yes."
McCarthy and Wahlberg began dating during the summer of 2013 following the Blue Blood actor’s flirty appearance on McCarthy’s VH1 talk show. Though they’ve yet to set a date for the nuptials, McCarthy says they’re thinking about tying the knot in August 2015.
