First comes love and then comes marriage and maybe a baby Wahlberg in a baby carriage! Sorry got a little silly there. Jenny McCarthy broke the big news on The View this morning.
“I just got engaged!” McCarthy announced (via E! News), saying of her engagement ring: “It’s a yellow sapphire.”
The former Playboy model-turned-host later got teary-eyed when sharing the news, and yes, her fiancé Donnie Wahlberg was also there “drying his tears” according to fellow View star Whoopi Goldberg.
Jenny also shared how the surprise proposal went down and how her 11-year-old son Evan Asher helped out!
“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. He asked, ‘Will you marry me?’ I of course said yes. 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.”
Congrats to the happy couple!
