Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy say they plan on having a small, family-only, wedding and even mentioned the possibility of eloping. 

Wahlberg and McCarthy called Donnie's longtime friend and KISS 108 Boston radio host, Matty in the Morning, to give their first interview as an engaged couple today - all while spooning in bed.  

“I want a wedding, but I don’t want 800 people, so it might be family members only; about 200 people,” McCarthy said. 

Wahlberg said he didn't stick around the set of The View the other day because he wanted their first interview as an engaged couple to be with Matty in the Morning, a personal friend of over 20 years. That’s some hometown respect right there. 

Jenny McCarthy is going to be a Wahlberg, which is a big deal for Boston. 

“I really, honestly always said I wanted a Boston boy,” McCarthy said, “so my dream came true.” 

Congratulations to the happy couple!
