Donnie Wahllberg, 44, and Jenny McCarthy, 41, are engaged! “The View” co-host announced the news on the show this morning, and you could tell how happy she was.
She talked about how Wahlberg involved her 11-year-old son in the sweet proposal.
“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.”
McCarthy quickly realized what was going on.
“The last time, Donnie came out with Evan and Donnie’s shirt said ‘Me’ … and he got down on his knee,” she added.
She didn’t hesitate to say “yes,” and after she said that, Evan yelled “I have another dad!”
The two lovebirds have been dating since last summer, and they are thinking of tying the knot in August or next year.
McCarthy told ABC last year how amazing Wahlberg was with her son.
“They caught frogs together,” McCarthy said. “Evan was like, ‘See you later mom. We’re gonna catch frogs,’ and that was that.”
Besides being great with her son, Wahlberg never forgets to tell McCarthy how proud he is of her.
This will be the second marriage for both of them. McCarthy was married to John Asher, and they divorced in 2005. Wahlberg was married to Kim Fey, and they split in 2008.
