Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg are married! The tied the knot Sunday at the historic Hotel Baker in St. Charles, Illinois, outside her hometown of Chicago.
The bride, 41, wore a gown she picked up at Berdorf Goodman. She joked that she’d get married at a KFC if her heart was in it, but it was a bit fancier than that.
Guests included her View co-host Sherri Shepherd, as well as three members of New Kids on the Block: Jordan Knight, Danny Wood and Jonathan Knight.
One person who didn’t make it to Sunday’s event was the groom’s brother. Mark Wahlberg skipped the ceremony, but Tweeted his good wishes.
“I love you, Donnie, we’re very happy for you,” he says in a congratulatory video, surrounded by his wife and four kids. “Sorry we couldn’t be there, we’ll see you soon.”
This is the second marriage for both McCarthy and Wahlberg.
Her son Evan, 12, helped with the April proposal by hand-delivering notes to mom with the words “Will” and “You” and “Marry” before Donnie, 45, walked in with a t-shirt reading “Me?”
Wahlberg also has two sons: Xavier, 21, and Elijah, 13.
“The very first time I saw him, I was in the eighth grade and New Kids on the Block was on MTV,” McCarthy has said of Wahlberg’s boy band days.
“I thought Donnie was the hottest one.”
And now all hers! For life!
