On Wednesday morning, The View co-host Jenny McCarthy tweeted, “Turn on #theview It’s gonna be a goooood one. : )”
And she was right.
The former Playboy model broke the news that she’s engaged to the New Kids On The Block band member Donnie Wahlberg.
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg said, “He was over there drying his tears,” and Barbara Walters offered up her New York City apartment as a wedding venue if the ceremony happens in September.
The couple met on Jenny’s VH1 talk show and their romance really began to blossom during an appearance on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live in July 2013.
Jenny told the sweet story of how the proposal went down. It was just another Sunday at home with Jennie, Donnie and her son Evan. Donnie had her son Evan walk in and hand her a note with the word “will” written on it. He left and came back with another note saying “you” at which point Jenny said she realized what was going down. After returning with the card saying “mary” – she noted he’d misspelled it – Donnie came into the room wearing a t-shirt that read “me.” Needless to say, the answer was yes.
