Jenny McCarthy has revealed she still loves Jim Carrey - and said her 10-year-old son misses the funnyman.

The model-turned-actress and author, who split from the Ace Ventura actor in 2010 after a five-year relationship, told US radio personality Howard Stern her son Evan, who is autistic, still asks after Jim.

"I've tried to ask (Jim) numerous times (to see Evan), because my son still asks," she said.

"I haven't (reached out directly)... I think that sometimes people need to take a real break from each other... But I still love him.

"I think you can love people from a distance and respect him. But as a mother, you just hope when you have a relationship with someone, it has nothing to do with the child when you break up."

The actress and model added: "I tell (Evan) that someday you'll cross paths, meet again... (but) it's hard. He's been in therapy. It's a process, he's working on it."

Jenny - who is dating Chicago Bears player Brian Urlacher - said she was "so much happier" now.
