Jenny McCarthy announced on The View today that she's engaged to Donnie Wahlberg!
"I just got engaged!" she said excitedly as she showed off her gorgeous ring. "It's a yellow sapphire." She was nearly in tears when she spilled the deets on Donnie's proposal, adding, "This weekend I was sitting with Donnie ... and he went into the other room and out came [my son] Evan with a card that said 'Will' and he handed it to me. 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' ... and he got down on his knee." Awww!
The couple first started dating last summer, and if they make it down the aisle, this will be the second marriage for both. Wahlberg has two sons from his nine-year marriage to Kim Fey, and McCarthy has a son, Evan, from her marriage to director John Asher.
After the show, Jenny tweeted the photo below and wrote, "Thank you for all the sweet wishes. @DonnieWahlberg and I are grateful and blessed. #love #bhlove."
