Jenny McCarthy thinks Donnie Wahlberg is ''a hottie.''

The former Playboy model - who is a co-host on 'The View' - can't wait to marry the New Kids on the Block singer because she thinks he's the perfect guy.

The 41-year-old beauty told Australia's Jackie O radio show: ''He's a hottie and I couldn't be more excited, proud and turned on at the same time.''

The couple got engaged in April and Donnie, 44, got Jenny's 11-year-old son Evan with her ex-husband, John Mallory Asher, to help him propose by having him give her a series of notes, but he misspelled the word ''marry'' at the time.

She recalled: ''I was sitting on the couch doing what every girl does saying 'tell me how much you love me' when he [Donnie] left the room. He and my son Evan came running back in holding a piece of paper saying 'WILL.'

''[They] ran out and returned carrying another piece of paper with the word 'YOU', and then disappeared and ran back in with another piece of paper that read 'MARY,' but misspelled it without the second R.''

Donnie then put on a T-shirt with the word ''Me'' printed on it and she instantly broke down in tears before saying yes.

Jenny previously revealed they are planning a small wedding because they've both been married before.

She said: ''We'll have a small wedding in a really beautiful place and we both want do it right this time. We've both been married before and we want to make it special -- this is the last wedding.''
