Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg are engaged. Yes, ladies, that means the NKOTB singer is once again officially off the market. The host of The View announced on the show Wednesday that she and Wahlberg got engaged this past weekend. The Blue Bloods star even involved McCarthy's 11-year-old son Evan in the proposal.

"This weekend I was sitting with Donnie...and he went into the other room and Evan out came with a card that said 'Will' and he handed it to me," she said. "Then Evan ran away and came in with a card that said 'You.' I started crying and then Evan came into the room with the word 'Marry' -- but spelled wrong."

She added, "Last, Donnie came out with Evan and Donnie's shirt said 'Me' and he got down on his knee....Of course, I said 'Yes.' In that moment Evan yelled, 'I have another dad!' and it made all of us cry."

Wow. Talk about creative and romantic. Any woman with a child will no doubt agree that Donnie Wahlberg did a great job with his proposal to Jenny McCarthy.

Before sharing her exciting news, Jenny McCarthy shared a rather cryptic message with her Twitter followers.

Following Wednesday's airing of The View, she shared another tweet.

This will be the second marriage for the New Kids on the Block singer. Donnie Wahlberg was married to Kim Fey from 1999 to 2008. They have two children. Jenny McCarthy was married from 1995-2005 to John Asher. They are Evan's parents. She also dated actor Jim Carrey for quite some time following her divorce.

No word has escaped yet as to when Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy will tie the knot. It seems quite likely, however, that Evan will play some sort of role in the wedding ceremony. When a child from a previous marriage or relationship is included in the remarrying process on some level, it usually helps make the transition into becoming a family much easier. Kudos to Wahlberg for the insight into what might be best for Evan's future. Evan is autistic.

And congratulations are certainly in order to both Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg. Their engagement is likely a big topic of conversation among many people right now--both celebrities and fans. The only ones grieving are those diehard NKOTB fans.
