Jenny McCarthy is engaged to Donnie Wahlberg! The New Kids on the Block member and "The View" co-host have officially taken their relationship to the next level. On April 16, People Magazine reported that Donnie popped the question last weekend with a huge yellow sapphire ring. And, naturally, Jenny said yes!

Jenny McCarthy made the announcement on Wednesday morning's episode of "The View." She got very emotional while talking about the proposal that her son, Evan, helped out with. Donnie and Jenny haven't even been together for a year but they bond on many levels -- so why wait?

Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy really hit it off when they first met. Believe it or not, the two have a lot in common. They both have children -- which is great -- and they both know what it's like to juggle their personal lives with their careers. This, of course, is very important when it comes to a Hollywood romance. Donnie and Jenny have not made any definitive wedding plans so when it comes to a date, Jenny said that they haven't decided yet.

Fans of Donnie have very mixed feelings about this union. Some are so happy that Donnie has found love again and they want nothing but the best for him. Others feel that Jenny isn't the best for him and they are actually mad that he's planning to marry her... hey you can't please everyone, right?

Although Donnie Wahlberg has been receiving numerous messages since the news broke, he took to Twitter to reveal one emotion. The single most important emotion that a person can feel. "#Happy," he tweeted about an hour ago. And he has every right to be happy.

Donnie and Jenny have a lot of planning to do but they will fit time into their busy schedules for that. For now, they are both enjoying their engagement, happy to finally tell the world the big news. Many congratulations to the #happy couple!
