Donnie Wahlberg is one of those people who managed to find real love in their 40s. After a devastating divorce to his wife of 9 years, Kim Fey, the Blue Bloods star met the woman who healed his broken heart.

In 2013, Donnie was a guest on The Jenny McCarthy Show. He started flirting with the host and soon after, the two were dating.

A year later, the lovebirds got engaged and shortly, they were saying their “I do’s” in front of their friends and family. Wahlberg has become McCarthy’s biggest supporter and a father to her son.

A doting dad

Donnie Wahlberg is a great actor but he is even a better dad. The 50-year-old is raising two sons, Elijah and Xavier, from his previous marriage but he also became a father to his wife Jenny McCarthy’s son Joseph.

17-year-old Joseph is McCarthy’s only child. He was born when the actress was married to John Mallory Asher. In 2005, 3 years after his birth, the boy was diagnosed with autism.

In the same year, Jenny divorced Asher. She had been raising her son by herself until she met Donnie, who has offered love, help, and care she and Joseph needed.

Wahlberg got used to having a big family as he is one of the 9 siblings himself. Moreover, he also has three half-siblings from his father’s first marriage.

Donnie welcomed McCarthy and her son into his family with open arms and now they have so many people to rely on. The couple’s story proves that it’s never too late to meet the person who will completely change your life.
