Newly Engaged Jenny McCarthy & Donnie Wahlberg: Camping Couple in Upstate NY

They’re happily engaged and deeply in love, and Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg retreated to a campsite in upstate New York on Thursday afternoon (April 17).

Having just announced the joyous news, the “Singled Out” starlet and her New Kids on the Block beau appeared to be getting some quality alone time, perhaps to begin planning their wedding.

Earlier in the day, Jenny gushed over her left-hand sparkler during “The View,” noting that Donnie helped design it.

Happy Jewelers’ Daniel Arik (who helped Walhberg through the purchasing process) explained, "He did have an idea of what he wanted. We showed him a few different pieces and custom made his ring."

"Yellow sapphire is really expensive, especially in that size. You don't find many people buying a 10-carat yellow sapphire!" he added.

"It was really nice. When he saw it, he was stunned. The experience was amazing. Out of all the people I deal with, he was one of the easiest, most pleasant people. It was really fun."
