Jenny McCarthy is happily married to Donnie Wahlberg.
As a mother of an preteen son, Ethan, Jenny McCarthy is working on blending her son with Wahlberg’s two sons, Xavier and Elijah.
It’s hard work, but Jenny McCarthy thinks it is a blessing to all of them.
Jenny McCarthy said, “Integration is not easy for any family, so it took baby steps in some areas.”
She added, “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 what Elijah means to me in my life that I didn’t necessarily get from anybody before.”
She went on to say, “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.”
It seems like Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg have got this blended family thing figured out!
But, will Jenny McCarthy be adding to their family anytime soon? Definitely not. In fact, she seems to be looking forward to a time when she and her husband can enjoy life alone together.
Jenny McCarthy said, “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!”
She added, “I want to go towards the light with my husband while we still can walk.”
Oh, I’m sure Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg will be able to walk for a long time!
Blended families are tough! What do you think about Jenny McCarthy’s decision not to add babies to the situation?
