McCarthy ready to wed

Jenny McCarthy says she's ready to wed Donnie Wahlberg and has even considered proposing.

The 41-year-old actress revealed in August she had been dating the former New Kids on the Block singer after they met on her cancelled daytime series The Jenny McCarthy Show.

Speaking during a pre-taped appearance on the Bethenny show, Jenny confessed not only would she say "yes" if Donnie proposed, but she's also not afraid of popping the question.

"I think he would be an amazing husband! So, if he does [propose] yea, I would sure say yes. I wouldn't be surprised if I was the one proposing!" she shared on the US show.

Jenny was previously married to director John Asher from 1999 to 2005 and the former couple share an 11-year-old son, Evan.

She thought after her divorce she would never marry again but Jenny admits she may have been very wrong.

"I said on every show, 'I would never! I would never get married again ever!' And boy, you never say never," she admitted.

Jenny was even hesitant to begin dating after the end of her last high profile relationship, with Jim Carrey. The pair split in 2010 after five years together.

Shortly before she met Donnie, her feelings changed.

"I told the universe I'm ready for love. I said bring the one. I'm not doing any more auditions. I did one year of dating no one. I said I'm going to say no to everyone and if someone breaks through then I'll follow that," she said, adding that she "made the first move" on the singer.

Jenny's appearance on the Bethenny show will air in the US on Monday.
