Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg's romance officially has the seal of approval from his sister and the actress' son.

"I would love it. We have met and she's a doll," Tracy said. "She's definitely welcome."
As she tried to dish on her brother;s grossest habits, McCarthy took over and instead praised the New Kids on the Block singer.
"I think everything he does -- and I'm not just saying this 'cause I love him-- I think everything about him is awesome," said The View co-host. "He's one of the most incredible men I've ever met in my entire life. I know I'm ridiculous at times, but he has blown me away at what an incredible person he is. He does not disgust me yet. Ask me 20 years from now."
