Congratulations to the happy family!
Congratulations to Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg, who are engaged now, according to McCarthy herself. The TV personality announced the exciting news on her talk show, The View. Of course she did. McCarthy dropped the news on Wednesday, April 16.
This will be the 41-year-old actress.
"I just got engaged!" McCarthy told her co-hosts, showing off her unusual engagement ring – a yellow sapphire, surrounded by diamonds.She also took several snaps of the ring, while getting a Sally Hansen sponsored manicure. Hey, somebody will have to pay for that wedding reception.
The couple have been together since summer 2013.
She went on detailing the proposal, which got the help from her 11-year-old son Evan. "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," she recalled.
Well, we’re pretty sure it’s impossible to say “no” to a proposal that cute. Luckily, “no” hadn’t even crossed McCarthy’s mind, she said. "He asked, 'Will you marry me?' I of course said yes,” she continued. “And in that moment, Evan yelled, 'I have another dad! I have another dad.' And it was just - it made all of us cry. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. He's so wonderful."
McCarthy and Wahlberg are yet to set a date – they did just get engaged yesterday, after all – but the bride to be is thinking about an August 2015 wedding. This will be a second marriage for both.
