In a surprise announcement today (April 16, 2014) on 'The View,' Jenny McCarthy announced that she was engaged to Donnie Wahlberg according to US Weekly. Jenny was elated as she delivered the news and ran around the semi-circle getting and giving hugs from her co-stars while showing off her new engagement ring.
Instead of a typical diamond engagement ring, McCarthy flashed a huge yellow sapphire ring that was absolutely gorgeous. Barbara Walters was the first co-host to ask about a wedding date, in which McCarthy replied that they haven't decided yet. McCarthy later disclosed that the couple were thinking about getting married in August of 2015.
Wahlberg, who stars on 'Blue Blood,' joined the show later and dished on the proposal, telling his side of the story. McCarthy's son, Evan, was actually in on the proposal and had a part in delivering the proposal, which actually took place this past weekend.
Evan delivered a card to Jenny that had the word "Will" on the front and then walked away. That was all the card said. Next Evan brought her a card with the word "You" on it and walked away once again. Jenny started getting the message then and was in tears by the time the next card arrive that said "Mary" (spelled wrong) and her son once again disappearing. Next Donnie stepped out with Evan wearing a t-shirt that had the word "me" and a question mark on the front. Oh course she said, “yes!”
McCarthy and Wahlberg have been "an item" since last July. They have both been married one time previously, with McCarthy also in a long term relationship with Jim Carrey which lasted for five years. McCarthy was married to John Mallory Asher, Evan's father and Wahlberg was previously married to Kim Fey. Wahlberg has two sons from his previous marriage to Fey according to WetPaint.
