Jenny McCarthy shared some very happy and surprising news on The View Wednesday morning. Becoming emotional and teary-eyed, McCarthy announced her engagement news to boyfriend, Donnie Wahlberg.
“I just got engaged! It’s a yellow sapphire,” said McCarthy of her engagement rind, reported E! News.
McCarthy went on to tell the story of how Wahlberg asked her the big question. Using McCarthy’s 11-year-old son, Evan Asher, as help, Asher came to McCarthy multiple times in a row with “Will,” “you” and “marry” written on cards. When he came out for the final time, McCarthy’s son wore a shirt that said “Me?” and Wahlberg joined him with ring in hand.
McCarthy and Wahlberg could be getting married as soon as August however McCarthy also said they might choose to stretch out the engagement for a year.
This will be the second marriage for the host of The View and Blue Bloods actor. Wahlberg’s nine-year marriage to Kim Fey ended in 2008 after the two divorced. Together they have two sons, reported People.
Also previously married, McCarthy divorced John Asher, the father of her son, in 2005.
