UPDATED: The "View" co-host announced the news on Wednesday's show.

Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg are engaged.

The View co-host revealed on Wednesday's show that she and her former New Kids on the Block boyfriend are set to tie the knot, unveiling a large yellow sapphire.

After some squealing from her co-hosts, McCarthy explained how Wahlberg, currently starring on Blue Bloods, proposed.

Over the weekend, she said he and her son, Evan, coordinated a proposal, in which her son handed her pieces of paper that said, "will," "you" and "marry." Donnie then walked out with a shirt that read, "Me?" and got down on one knee and proposed, McCarthy recalled, choking up.

After McCarthy said yes, Evan said, "I have another dad," the emotional host said.

Wahlberg then snuck out to surprise McCarthy on the show.

McCarthy said she doesn't know when the wedding will be, but guessed that it could be in August or maybe next year. With that, Barbara Walters offered to let them have the wedding in her apartment in September 2015.
