Jenny McCarthy Shares a Picture from Her Husband Donnie Wahlberg's 50th Birthday Party
Jenny McCarthy throws an extravagant designer party for her husband, Donnie Wahlberg’s 50th birthday.
Jenny McCarthy may have had to break the bank with a Versace themed party for Donnie Wahlberg’s 50th birthday. The event was held on August 17, and hosted in Chicago. McCarthy shared pictures of the venue, thanking everyone that was involved.
“I’ll be paying this party off until I’m 90, truly. I’m going as far as I can without filing for bankruptcy. I wanted to give him, like, the greatest party ever because he’s been the most wonderful human being — not only with me but with everyone he knows.”
In a picture of her outfit from the night, McCarthy writes:
“Glam squad shout out.”
McCarthy and Wahlberg had two outfit changes on the night and wore matching Versace styles. Looking like Donatella Versace, McCarthy wore her hair in a high pony and a version of what looked like Donatella’s iconic black strapless bra. She finished the look with a Versace gold baroque printed floor length skirt and accessorized with gold jewellery.
The party was attended by various stars, with the likes of Big Freedia, Joey McIntyre and Robin Thicke.

Scenes from a most epic surprise 50th Birthday Celebration! An event thrown by, planned by, masterminded by, meticulously executed by and lovingly overseen by, my most amazing wife — @jennymccarthy! Done with the help of our dear friend John Wolf @wolfhomedesign. I can’t explain how she did it. I can’t even fully explain what she actually did — as I haven’t fully grasped it myself yet (some five days later). All I can say is I’m completely in awe of my wife. Our home was transformed into a journey through my life. From my childhood, to my teenage years, to my adulthood, even to my parenthood — by including my son @lijah_wahlberg and celebrating his 18th bday with just as much love and care she did mine. I’ll never fit all the details into this post — I can only say that the guests and performers included people that could only have been selected by my soul mate. Only my soul mate would move mountains to get @bigfreedia to be there — knowing how much it would truly mean to me. Only my soul mate would not only get my old friend @stubbsthechiefrocka to spin but also @dnice — knowing how much I admire his work and his spirit. Only my soul mate would not only get @blacksheepdres there to perform The Choice is Yours — but she would also perform the freaking song herself to show me how my love of hip hop has inspired her love of it as well. Only my soul mate could recruit my guys @kmaher56, @kevllama and @jaredaripaul to pull it all off! And only my soul mate would go above and beyond to make sure my son Elijah (her step son) felt just as special on this day as she made me feel on mine — doing all she could to get @itsnoahvera, @thespencersotelo, @htpimd, @stanleyrrandolph and @jonathanrknight (Elijah’s favorite New Kid) to the party as well. I could go on forever but I’ll end by saying this — Thank you Jenny. I never thought I’d see 50, nevermind celebrate 50 Thank god I’m so blessed to celebrate it with you and so many of the people that I love. You are the love of my life. My wife. #MrsWahlberg❤️ Special thanks @lynettemcphoto
Walberg’s family were also in attendance; his sister, Tracey Wahlberg and his son, Elijah Wahlberg. Sharing several pictures from the night, the proud father shared a special message on Instagram for his son, who celebrated his birthday on August 20:
"Happy 18th Birthday to the coolest young man I’ve ever known — @lijah_wahlberg! There aren’t words to describe the levels of pride I feel for you — as a son, as a friend, a compassionate human being, as a student, a teacher, a creator, as a wise soul and as a cooler kid at 18 than I ever was. One of the greatest blessings in my life has been to bare witness to you becoming the wonderful young man that you are. I love you son. Now, let’s hope we can get our @celtics to win #Banner18 in honor of your 18th year! Happy #BornDay@lijah_wahlberg."

According to the Boston Herald, Wahlberg was surprised with special guest performances, challenged to dance-offs by his friends. He blew out his candles on a cake created to look like stacks of designer bags.
After an amazing night, Wahlberg took to twitter to thank his family, fans and friends, saying:
"Too many bday wishes to possibly respond to all of them, half them or even a fraction of them. Just know, they mean the world to me and I am truly #thankful #FiftyIsTheNew30"
From the looks of all they fun he had, fifty is definitely the new thirty. Wahlberg celebrated his birthday just days before his son’s, Elijah's 18th birthday. Considering how lavish this weekend was, it’s safe to say that there was plenty of cake to go around.
