The 41-year old actress says she will marry Blue Bloods star Donnie Wahlberg. McCarthy’s son Evan played a starring role in the proposal, handing her a series of cards with the words “will,” “you,” and “marry,” before Wahlberg walked in with a shirt that said "me" on it

Jenny McCarthy is about to become Mrs. Donnie Wahlberg. The View co-host shared her engagement with the world on Wednesday, showcasing her yellow sapphire ring on the talk show, US Weekly reports.

McCarthy’s 11-year-old son Evan had a starring role in the proposal, handing his a series of cards with the words “will,” “you,” and “marry,” before former New Kid on the Block star walked in with a shirt with the word “me” on it, McCarthy said.

“Of course I said ‘yes,’” the 41-year-old McCarthy said. And her son was excited, too. “In that moment Evan yelled, ‘I have another dad!’ and it made all of us cry,” McCarthy shared.

The two have been dating since last summer. The upcoming nuptials (they haven’t yet set a date) will be the second time around for both stars. McCarthy was previously married to actor and director John Mallory Asher.
