Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg are engaged, y’all! Jenny broke the news on the View alongside her new fiance, Donnie. She revealed that she just got engaged, adding that it’s a yellow sapphire ring that Donnie gave her. Of course, anybody reading Jenny’s Twitter would have known to tune into the View this morning, since she tweeted, “Good morning my friends. Have a kick ass Wednesday. Between us… I would watch #theview today. Just Sayn. Xxoo.” I guess we know why, right?
On the show, she also explains that her young son, Evan Asher, reportedly helped with the ‘surprise proposal’. She adds, “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.”
Awww. That’s honestly one of the cutest proposal stories ever, and my cynicism about the future of their relationship has been held back – only slightly, but still.
Jenny adds that they’re not sure about the wedding date, but they’re thinking about some time in the fall. Barbara Walters also jokingly offered her apartment as a location for the wedding, but then joked that the newlyweds wouldn’t be able to stay there for the night.
