Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg have shared their first newlywed selfie.
The 41-year-old television host and 45-year-old actor said their vows in St. Charles, Illinois on Sunday, August 31.
The couple wed in an intimate 20-minute ceremony, surrounded by their closest friends and family members.
McCarthy revealed to People in July that she didn’t care where the ceremony took place.
“I could get married in Kentucky Fried Chicken,” she said. “I don’t care as long as the heart is in the ceremony.”
Unfortunately, there was one person who was not able to attend the couple’s nuptials. Donnie’s brother Mark Wahlberg had a prior engagement and was not able to attend. However, he did send his love to the couple through a congratulatory video. “I love you, Donnie, we’re very happy for you,” he said. “Sorry we couldn’t be there, we’ll see you soon.”
After the couple returned from their honeymoon, they decided to share a selfie of themselves on Twitter. “Mr & Mrs Wahlberg, checking in from heaven,” they captioned the photo. “Thank you for all of your well wishes. #happy.”

McCarthy announced her engagement on the morning show The View back in April. “This weekend I was sitting with Donnie … and he went into the other room and out came Evan [her 11-year-old son] with a card that said ‘Will’ and he handed it to me,” she said at the time. “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’ … and he got down on his knee,” she continued.
