“Extra” was with Donnie Wahlberg in his hometown of Boston as he cheered on his brother, Jim, at the 2014 Boston Marathon.
Wahlberg opened up for the first time about his engagement to Jenny McCarthy, saying he knew he wanted to propose shortly after he and “The View” co-host began dating. “Probably planned it about two months into us dating, but things take time and I just waited until the moment was right.”
Wahlberg thought the engagement wasn’t exactly a surprise for Jenny. “I don’t know if it was a surprise… it might’ve been a race because she kept threatening to propose to me. Not to make me do it, she just wanted to get engaged, so did I it first. I’m a little old-fashioned. I wasn’t going to let her get on one knee.”
The two haven’t started the wedding planning just yet. “No details yet. We’ll do it when it’s right, but so far everything is awesome.”
As for being at the marathon, Donnie called it, “overwhelming.” He said it was a “very proud day for Boston and America.”
Donnie’s brother Jim will join the A&E family reality show “The Wahlburgers” next season.

New Kids On The Block singer Donnie Wahlberg has got a startling revelation for fans of the boyband turned manband – he doesn’t like (You Got It) The Right Stuff.
This is the catchy 1988 signature song that catapulted the Boston lads to fame in the UK, became a school disco classic with its own dance routine and was their first number one hit on these shores.
But don’t be disheartened NKOTB devotees, it’s Donnie’s favourite number to perform live – good news for those looking forward to reliving their favourite high school days crush at their forthcoming An Intimate Evening With New Kids on the Block show at the O2 Apollo.
“I don’t like the song The Right Stuff, I think it’s a silly song,” Donnie, 44, says matter-of factly.
“But I love performing it live because of the fans’ reaction to it.”
In the late 80s and early 90s, a New Kids concert would pack out arenas with teenage girls screaming over every note and movement by the modern boyband prototype. The boys sold a staggering 80 million records worldwide and they had their own dolls and a cartoon TV series.
