Donnie is the eighth of nine children of Donald Wahlberg, a delivery driver, and Alma Conroy (née Donnelly), a nurse’s aide. The pair, who were divorced, both passed away.

Their son rose to prominence at age 15 after joining the teen vocal group New Kids on the Block alongside his younger brother, Mark Wahlberg.

“The Masked Singer” judge revealed in a December 2020 interview that she had had a conversation with her child and asked him about his relationship with his stepfather Donnie.

The mother of one divulged Evan told her, “You know, I finally feel safe,” which warmed her heart. McCarthy admitted that she never thought she would eventually find someone like a record producer.

 

The movie star feels she has done a good job in finding the perfect stepdad for her son and a husband for herself. In a 2018 interview, McCarthy expressed that being a single mother before meeting Donnie and not finding the right person “was one of my biggest fears.”

She revealed during her appearance on “The Drew Barrymore Show” that she even asked Donnie to attend couples therapy at the beginning of their romance, even though they had no problems.
