Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg are engaged!
After a whirlwind romance, the hilarious actress and former New Kids On The Block singer are gearing up to tie the knot. Jenny McCarthy announced her engagement on The View, her newest gig. Viewers could tell she was still in shock and awe as she shook when she shared the big news to her co-stars and the millions tuning in.
She started by giving fans an update on a man she hooked up on her Date My Dad special a couple of years ago.
McCarthy said he was happy, because "he’s happy for me." She then screamed with excitement, "Because I just got engaged!"
The crowd broke out into cheers and while her co-stars happily clapped Sherri Shepherd couldn’t help but jump out of her seat and give McCarthy a huge hug.
Wahlberg let everyone know how he felt about the engagement on Twitter.
Thanks for all the well wishes & support! Jenny & I are so grateful! We have to figure out a way to celebrate with Blockheads! #BHelorParty?— Donnie Wahlberg (@DonnieWahlberg) April 16, 2014
During an appearance on Bethenny in November 2013, McCarthy made it clear Wahlberg was the one for her. “You know, I’ve said on every interview that I was like, ‘Never, I’ll never get married gain, ever’, and, of course, you never say never. I think he would be an amazing husband, so if he does (propose) I would for sure say yes.”
Congrats to the happy couple!
