Jenny McCarthy’s got the right stuff for Donnie Wahlberg!
“The View” host happily announced she was engaged to the 44-year-old New Kids On The Block singer on Wednesday’s episode of the ABC talk show.
“I just got engaged,” she gushed as she jumped up and down and hugged her co-hosts.
McCarthy, 41, who showed off her stunning yellow sapphire sparkler, explained to the audience the sweet way Wahlberg popped the question involving her 11-year-old son.
“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 handed it to me,” she said.
“Then Evan ran away and Evan came in with a card that said
‘You.’ … I just started crying and then Evan came back into the room with the word ‘Marry’ — but spelled wrong.””The last time, Donnie came out with Evan and Donnie’s shirt said ‘Me’ with a question mark … and he got down on his knee,” she recalled teary-eyed.
“Of course, I said ‘Yes,’” she said. “In that moment Evan yelled, ‘I have another dad!’ and it made all of us cry.”
The blond beauty shared that Walhberg makes her feel like the “luckiest girl in the world” as her husband-to-be came out and surprised her onstage.
McCarthy and Walhberg sweetly kissed and hugged and when Barbara Walters asked when the big day would be, they said they don’t know quite yet but are considering August 2015.
The couple began dating last summer after meeting on the set of McCarthy’s now-cancelled VH1 talk show.
McCarthy was formally married to Evan’s dad, John Mallory Asher, from 1999 to 2005 and also dated comedian Jim Carey for more than five years.
During a November 2013 interview with Bethenny Frankel, the TV personality admitted she used to say she never wanted to be a bride again, but all that changed after meeting Wahlberg.
“I’ve said on every interview that I was like, ‘Never get married again ever,’ and, of course, you never say never. I think he would be an amazing husband, so if he does (propose), I would for sure say yes.”
“I told the universe I’m ready for love. I said bring the one. I’m not doing any more auditions,” McCarthy added.
