Marriage might not have been in the cards for Jenny McCarthy, but since meeting Donnie Wahlberg her opinion has changed. She is even considering proposing to the New Kids on the Block singer.
McCarthy opened up about marriage during an interview with Bethenny Frankel Monday (Nov. 11) when the topic of Wahlberg came up. The two met on the set of Andy Cohen's show, "Watch What Happens Live," last year. At the time, she thought he was married. But, when he went on McCarthy's show earlier this year, she found out he was single.
"I told the universe, 'I am ready for love,'" she said. "I did one year of dating no one. I said, 'I'm going to say no to everyone and if someone does break through, where I'm like, Hmm, then I'll follow that.' And I wound up giving him my phone number on the show. I made the first move."
The two began dating in July, Us Weekly previously reported.
"You know, I've said on every interview that I was like, 'Never will I ever get married again ever,' and, boy, you never say never," McCarthy told Frankel. "I think he would be an amazing husband. So if he does, I would for sure say yes. I wouldn't be surprised if I was the one proposing."
When asked by OMG! Insider on Monday about possibly marrying McCarthy, Wahlberg played coy and wouldn't offer up a "yes" or "no."
“We're having an awesome time. She's really wonderful," he said. "It’s interesting for both of us because since our late teens/early 20s, we've both been in the spotlight and for the first time we've both found someone who can relate to what we've gone through. [We were] both supposed to be written off after the early ‘90s and have fought and worked hard to maintain a career and be parents. We've been married for the same amount of years and divorced pretty much the same amount of years. We have very similar experiences and we're having a great time.”
The former Playboy pin-up was previously married to actor/director John Mallory Asher from 1999 to 2005. She was then in a five-year relationship with Jim Carrey up until 2010. Wahlberg split from his wife in 2008.
