Jenny McCarthy is engaged to New Kids on the Block star Donnie Wahlberg!
The 41-year-old former Playboy model revealed the big news to her “The View” co-hosts and the world on Wednesday. Check out her gorgeous yellow sapphire ring!
Jenny began nervously rambling as she tried to share her exciting news that Donnie had popped the question.
Jenny said, “I just got engaged!”, showing off her ring.
She gushed, “It’s a yellow sapphire”.
Crying as she told about the proposal, McCarthy said her son Evan helped with the surprise last weekend, and how Wahlberg had gotten down on one knee.
McCarthy said of the 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 ran away and came back with a card that said ‘You,’ and I knew what was happening and I just started crying. And then he came out with a card that said ‘Marry,’ but it was spelled ‘Mary,’ and the last time Donnie came out with Evan and Evan’s shirt said ‘Me?’ and he was holding the ring. He asked, ‘Will you marry me?’ I of course said yes. And in that moment, Evan yelled, ‘I have another dad! I have another dad.’ And it was just—it made all of us cry,” she said, getting emotional. “I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. He’s so wonderful.”
The ceremony could come sooner than later, Jenny revealed. “We’re thinking of having an August wedding or maybe stretching it out a year.”
Barbara Walters then offered up her New York City apartment as a possible wedding venue, provided the ceremony happens in September. But Barbara jokingly stated, “On the wedding night, you cannot stay in my apartment”.
McCarthy is taping her daytime talk show in New York City, with the “Blue Bloods” actor recently finished filming season 4 of the series. He soon will mark the 30th of New Kids on the Block in Las Vegas in July.
This will be the second marriage for both. Wahlberg has two sons from his nine-year marriage to Kim Fey, which ended in divorce in 2008.
McCarthy’s son Evan is from her marriage to director John Asher, whom she divorced in 2005.
