Donnie Wahlberg's romance with Jenny Mccarthy has officially received the seal of approval from the singer/actor's sister Tracey - she insists the model-turned-TV personality would be "definitely welcome" into their family. The New Kids on the Block hitmaker began dating McCarthy in July (13) and the pair has been inseparable ever since. They made a joint appearance on America's Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday (29Oct13), when Wahlberg's older sibling made a surprise call in to the talk show and gave their relationship the thumbs up. Asked by host Andy Cohen if she would like McCarthy as a sister-in-law, Tracey replied, "I would love it. We have met and she's a doll. She's definitely welcome." Tracey went on to ask the blonde beauty what her brother's most disgusting habit is, but McCarthy struggled to name one thing she disliked and instead gushed about her new beau. She said, "I think everything about him is awesome. I think he's one of the most incredible men I've ever met in my entire life, I swear to God, and I don't think he has a disgusting thing at all. I know I'm ridiculous at times, but he has blown me away with what an incredible person he is. I've never been treated so wonderful (sic)." Wahlberg's previous marriage ended in 2008, while McCarthy also has one failed union under her belt - she split from actor/director John Mallory Asher, the father of her son Evan, in 2005. She has since romanced Jim Carrey and American football great Brian Urlacher.
