Jenny McCarthy made her big debut as a co-host of The View Monday, and she had her boyfriend there – literally – for support.
Blue Bloods star Donnie Wahlberg was the first celebrity guest on the show, and the former New Kid On The Block just so happens to be Jenny’s boyfriend.
She greeted him onstage with a playful pat on the butt and showed a live picture of how he’d decorated her dressing room with an entire ceiling full of balloons saying “that’s from my boyfriend” for her first day on the job.
Donnie explained how he met Jenny on Andy Cohen’s Bravo series Watch What Happens Live and about five months later he appeared on her VH1 talk show.
Jenny said she slipped him her number after the show but he didn’t call her. But when the pair finally got together and went on their first date, they did nothing but talk for six hours straight. He said that he got to see who she really was.
He confirmed that he and Jenny have officially been a couple since the Fourth of July.
As Andy Cohen would say, Mazel Tov to the couple!
