Unlikely Celebrity Couple ENGAGED!

by Vanessa Ryan

When they started dating last summer, they raised a lot of eyebrows and their unlikely coupling though they say, they instantly fell for each other.

Jenny McCarthy, 41, and Donnie Whalberg, 44,announced yesterday on Jenny's show The View they are taking their relationship to the next level and are getting married!

One trait they share is "our work ethic," McCarthy told PEOPLE last fall. "He understands my work schedule and he has his and I get it. And we're both single parents and he's trying to juggle all of that while I am too," she says.

This will be the second marriage for both.

I know a lot of people find them to be an "odd" couple, but we've always thought they made a great pair.

Check out that gorgeous ring on her hand below! Canary yellow diamond...BEAUTIFUL!

Congrats to them both!
