The famous actor was left with a broken heart for 5 years. But everything changed when he met Jenny McCarthy.

Donnie found new love after 40

In March of 2013, Donnie was a guest on The Jenny McCarthy Show. Wahlberg's and McCarthy's chemistry was instant and many could notice the flirtatious interaction between the two.

The couple started dating publicly in July of 2013 and were engaged by April of 2014. Jenny instantly knew Donnie was the one as he was exceptionally helpful with her son Evan, who has autism.

McCarthy once told Fox News how grateful she is for Wahlberg's kind heart:

Donnie [Wahlberg[ has been amazing. I thought for sure I would be going at it alone, like many parents who have kids with autism do. So the fact that I found the love of my life for me, and [my son] Evan found a stepdad in his life, I feel like I can’t ask for anything else.

Donnie once called Jenny his soulmate in an Instagram post dedicated to their anniversary:

My partner. My lover. My soulmate. My wife. My life. #HappyAnniversaryJenny. Four years down. Forever to go.

How sweet is that?

They are such a loving couple, we wish them all the best!
