(CBS) -- Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg are making it official.

The 41-year-old co-host of "The View" announced Wednesday that she's engaged to the New Kids on the Block member.

McCarthy opened up about the proposal during "The View," noting how Wahlberg, 44, involved her 11-year-old son, Evan, too.

"This weekend I was sitting with Donnie...and he went into the other room and Evan out came with a card that said 'Will' and he handed it to me," she said. "Then Evan ran away and came in with a card that said 'You.' I started crying and then Evan came into the room with the word 'Marry' -- but spelled wrong."

She added, "Last, Donnie came out with Evan and Donnie's shirt said 'Me' and he got down on his knee....Of course, I said 'Yes.' In that moment Evan yelled, 'I have another dad!' and it made all of us cry."

Wahlberg, who stars in CBS' "Blue Bloods," was married to Kim Fey from 1999-2008. They have two children together. McCarthy was married to director John Asher from 1995-2005. They are parents to Evan. McCarthy dated Jim Carrey after her divorce.

McCarthy and Wahlberg went public with their relationship last July.
