Donnie Wahlberg must be fairly certain Jenny McCarthy has the right stuff! Wednesday on The View, McCarthy announced she and The New Kids On The Block band member are engaged.


According to McCarthy, Wahlberg, who stars on the CBS cop drama Blue Bloods, enlisted the help of her 11-year-old son, Evan, with the proposal. McCarthy said:

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. 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.
