Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy tied the knot back in August after dating for about 13 months. Baby won't make three for this couple, however.

Jenny McCarthy has a son named Evan, who is autistic. Donnie Wahlberg's son Elijah is around the same age. The two have decided that these sons from before they met each other are plenty of children for them.

"When you work so hard and your kids are out of the diaper phase, out of the high chair and you get rid of all that stuff...to start over again? No way! I want to go towards the light with my husband while we still can walk," McCarthy said in a recent interview.

She admits that bringing their blended family together wasn't always easy for her and the Blue Bloods star.

"Integration is not easy for any family, so it took baby steps in some areas," Jenny McCarthy said.

"We talked about this last night. We said, 'It's funny how we can see how each child is a blessing for each other.' Like Evan is so influenced by Elijah, Donnie's son who's his similar age. And how Elijah means to me in my life that I didn't necessarily get from anybody before. So if everyone can just realize that integration is for a reason and you look at it like blessings, it makes it so much easier to just accept what is and kind of go through those bumps and grinds with peace," she added.

In addition to starring on Blue Bloods, Donnie Wahlberg is a member of the boy band New Kids On the Block. Jenny McCarthy launched her career thanks to Playboy magazine. She was a nude model back in 1993 and soon became Playmate of the Year. These days she hosts a radio show on Sirius/XM called Dirty, Sexy, Funny with Jenny McCarthy. She was in a relationship with Jim Carrey for several years. Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy just finished up season one of their A&E show Donnie Loves Jenny.

Are you surprised to learn that Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy won't be adding to their family? With their careers and the sons they already have, it sounds like their schedules are likely maxed.
