Despite clearly being very much in love, Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy have been beleaguered by divorce rumours 14 months after tying the knot.
The couple met early in 2013 and went public with their relationship in July the same year. They married another year later and according to Donnie have never been apart for more than a few hours at a time.
Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg seem to be very much infatuated with one another, and that even 15 months into their marriage. The honeymoon phase is obviously not yet over.
Not even their show Donnie loves Jenny seems to make a dent in their feelings for each other. It’s a fact that dozens of other celebrity couples that have appeared on various reality TV shows (including Real Housewives of wherever, of course) have divorced after or even during the airing of those shows. But Donnie and Jenny don’t seem to be too worried about that.
Yet only a few weeks ago some gossip rags took it upon themselves to report that the marriage was strained and the couple was on the verge of splitting up. Why, you ask? Because Jenny McCarthy is apparently not very mature. You will remember her bright pink hairdo over the summer. Additionally she is reported to have gotten new tattoos on a whim and Donnie is apparently underwhelmed with her immature behaviour.
There’s also the question of their different parenting styles. They do share three sons now, Donnie has two from his previous marriage and Jenny has son Evan.
And then, to top it all off, it is also said that Jenny not only wants to wear the pants the relationship, but isn’t much of a housewife either, much to Donnie’s annoyance.
Alas, there seems to be but one ‘source’ to all this and all the usual suspects have reported the exact same story, not once adding anything new to it. When everyone is just citing each other, a story does not gain credibility.
Gossip Cop has dug a little deeper and received word from a rep that there’s no truth to any of the rumours. Additionally Donnie Wahlberg himself has taken to Twitter to wonder aloud, in a manner of speaking, where he went when he walked out of his wife, because he sure didn’t know.
Both Donnie and Jennie have since posted several tweets and pictures that all served to refute the rumours. And one is inclined to believe them. They do seem very much in love and there’s no outward indication that they are headed for splitsville.
Only a few months ago it was reported that the couple might be trying for a child together, which was discussed in a promo for their show. As of now they are certainly not expecting, but if a couple tries to have a child, divorce is not a likely scenario. And these two don’t seem to be one of those couples trying to patch their relationship up with a baby.
No, they seem genuinely happy with each other and simply want to add a child to their family that they’ve not had with a previous partner.
Whatever you may think of Jenny McCarthy’s politics and views, there’s no reason to begrudge her her happiness.
