The model confirmed the news on The View earlier today, admitting that Donnie had finally popped the question and that she wasn’t going to say ‘no’.
41-year old Jenny and her future hubby made the appearance on the show together as they confirmed their engagement and what they plan their wedding to be like.
According to Whoopi Goldberg, Donnie “was over there drying his tears,” giving the sense that even he was overcome with emotions after going public with the news.
If you haven’t been following this story up, you’re missing out on all the juicy details. This wouldn’t have been a story unless Mark Wahlberg was involved, and sure enough, he definitely is.
So last year it was heavily reported that Mark – Donnie’s famous brother – was very much against the romance between the two. In fact, the brothers were butting heads over the situation to the point where they refused to speak to each other for months.
But now that we’ve learned Jenny will soon become Mark’s sister-in-law, it’ll be interesting to know how the actor feels about this. Mark “can’t stand” McCarthy, a source said at the time.
The Transformers star was supposedly convinced that Jenny was only with him for publicity and money, and that if Jenny wasn’t dumped within weeks after the relationship started, Mark would “disown” his brother until it happens.
Wow! Well, Jenny and Donnie have been together since last year July so there’s really no splitting them up anytime soon, especially not with their engagement announcement.
Something tells us that Donnie and Mark probably had a chat about the whole thing and Mark finally came to his senses and realized that his brother isn’t a child and should be free to make his own decisions.
The fact that he was crying on The View after sharing his love for Jenny just goes to show how much in love he is with her. Don’t know if I can say the same thing about her though.
Either way, we’ll see how this plays out and whether or not the two will actually ever tie the knot.
