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

During their appearance on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live Tuesday, they answered a call from Wahlberg's older sister, Tracy, who revealed she wouldn't mind if the two actually got married. 

"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."

Jenny McCarthy Reveals Her Opinion of 'The View' Co-Hosts & Talks Meeting Boyfriend For the First Time

McCarthy told Us Weekly on Sept. 9 that her 11-year-old son, Evan, approves of Wahlberg. She talked about her boyfriend's interactions with her son, saying, he's "nothing short of awesome [with my son].

"It's too soon to actually give the biggest opinion in the world, but the one meeting has been great. [He's] son-approved," she added.

McCarthy and Wahlberg met on the Watch What Happens Live set in 2012. McCarthy confessed she gave Wahlberg her number that night and he didn't call her for weeks, but once he did, they had a connection and went public with their relationship in July of 2013. 

McCarthy's View co-hosts also gave warm wishes to the couple after Wahlberg appeared on the show's season premiere, which also marked McCarthy's first episode as host on the show. Sherri Sheperd wore an "I Heart Donnie" shirt.
