Jenny McCarthy had big news to share Wednesday on "The View": She's engaged to Donnie Wahlberg.

McCarthy raised her hidden left hand from behind the desk, revealing an engagement ring.

"It's a yellow sapphire," she said. "The View" co-host told how Wahlberg, star of CBS' "Blue Bloods" and a member of New Kids on the Block, proposed to her last weekend. She said her son, Evan, helped with the proposal.

Wahlberg, 44, then came on the set of the ABC show and hugged and kissed his fiancee.

"I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. He's so wonderful," McCarthy, 41, said.

This will be the second marriage for both.

McCarthy will be joined by all her current and former "View" co-hosts on May 15 to salute outgoing show creator Barbara Walters. Walters recently announced her exit from the long-running daytime chat fest.

ABC said Wednesday the first-ever reunion will feature Meredith Vieira, Star Jones, Joy Behar, Sherri Shepherd, Jenny McCarthy and Whoopi Goldberg, among others. The special episode will air the day before Walters says goodbye as series co-host.
