"I just got engaged!" McCarthy exclaimed, showing off her engagement ring and jumping around on the set. "It's a yellow sapphire," she explained about the rock.
With tears in her eyes, McCarthy described how Wahlberg proposed with the help of Jenny’s son, Evan. The 11-year-old ran back and forth carry cards that read, “WILL” “YOU” “MARRY,” and then Donnie walked out wearing a shirt that said “ME.” He then got down on one knee.
After McCarthy told the story, Wahlberg appeared on “The View” set and kissed his bride-to-be.

McCarthy, 41, and Wahlberg, 44, began dating last summer.
This will be the second marriage for both. The “Blue Bloods” star has two sons from his nine-year marriage to Kim Fey, which ended in 2008. McCarthy was married to director John Asher, whom she divorced in 2005, and had a lengthy relationship with Jim Carrey.
“The View” co-host Jenny McCarthy announced Wednesday on the hit ABC morning show that she and boyfriend Donnie Wahlberg are going to get married!
