Meet Donnie Wahlberg's Wife Jenny McCarthy Who Mended His Heart after a Painful Divorce
Jenny McCarthy came into Donnie Wahlberg’s life at a time when he was healing from a devastating divorce.
The “Blue Bloods” actor was a divorced father of two sons in 2013 when he appeared as a guest on the VH1 talk show that McCarthy had at the time, as shared by E! News.
"I've never given a guy my number, but I was interested."
McCarthy wrote in a blog post promoting that episode in March 2013.
"Let’s just say we visually give ‘50 Shades of Grey’ a run for its money. It gets steamy. I mean like really steamy. Being turned on by a guy is always fun but to have it legitimately happen to you on TV is to be turned back into a 12-year-old. By the time we get into the groundbreaking interview, my face turns fifty shades of RED."
FIRST MAN SHE GAVE HER NUMBER TO
The pair already met a year earlier, as guests on Andy Cohen’s “Watch What Happens Live.” McCarthy recalled:
"I went a year without dating anybody. So I don't know if I was really randy or really ready, but he was there and I gave him my phone number...I've never given a guy my number, but I was interested."
She was married to John Asher for six years. The former couple, who divorced in 2005, share a son, Evan. After their divorce, McCarthy had a five-year relationship with actor Jim Carrey. She then dated fitness model Jason Toohey and football player Brian Urlacher.
For his part, Wahlberg and his ex-wife Kimberly Fey divorced in August 2008, after almost nine years of marriage. They share two sons, Xavier Alexander and Elijah Hendrix. The actor gave love another chance after meeting McCarthy. They tied the knot on August 31, 2014, in St. Charles, Illinois.
NO PLANS TO HAVE MORE CHILDREN
Since their wedding, their fans have been eagerly awaiting the news that there will be an addition to their family.
But the couple has decided not to have any more children. While they are not averse to the idea of growing their family, they just don't feel that they have the time to expand their blended family. McCarthy said:
“We both wish if there was more years in the clock that [having kids] could happen. But, you know what? We’ve realized we both have sons that are the same age [and] they both fell in love with each other. They’re teenagers, so they might not admit it, but they do love each other.”
