Guess we know who Jenny McCarthy will be kissing next New Year’s Eve! The 41-year-old is engaged to Blue Bloods star Donnie Wahlberg (yes, as in those Walhbergs).
Jenny made the exciting announcement on her show, The View, earlier today (April 16) and flashed her stunning ring (via Us Weekly). It’s not a diamond for Jenny this time around. She’s got a yellow sapphire so large it looks like a yellow Easter egg chilling on her ring finger.
During her View chat, Jenny shared a few romantic details of last weekend’s surprise proposal, saying her 11-year-old son Evan played a part. Hear the whole story by watching the video below!
As for when they’ll be walking down the aisle, Jenny says she and Donnie have yet to decide. We know she’ll have her pick of flower girls, though, seeing as her future brother-in-law Mark has two daughters in his large family!
Jenny and Donnie, a former New Kids on the Block member and actor, went public with their love last July. It was the first relationship for Jenny after she split from longtime beau, Jim Carrey. It’ll be the second marriage for both Jenny and Donnie; she was previously married to Evan’s father, John Mallory Asher, while Donnie has two sons with ex-wife Kim Fey.
Congratulations to the couple!
