As the legend goes, Donnie Wahlberg met Jenny McCarthy in the Bravo Clubhouse when they both appeared on Watch What Happens Live back in 2012. So, the couple (and the world at large) really has Andy Cohen to thank for their happily ever after. And Donnie knows it. Following their latest appearance on the show Monday night, Donnie headed to Twitter to thank Cupid Cohen for setting him up with his lady.
Two years after their Clubhouse meet cute, Jenny and Donnie married in August 2014. Several months after saying "I do," Jenny opened up about meeting Donnie for the first time during yet another appearance on WWHL. "I thought he was married on Watch What Happens Live," she shared back in 2014, via E! News. "Then he went on my show and I was like, 'He's single? I want to sit on his face.' That's what I told him. And then I gave him my phone number… and he didn't call for two weeks. And then we went out, and I knew from date one I was going to marry him."
And, yes, we think true love is always a good reason to hug it out.
