After hiding her hand behind the show's desk, Jenny showed off the ring and exclaimed, "I just got engaged!" She then wept as she recalled the proposal and explained Donnie, 44, had got down on one knee to pop the question. "This weekend I was sitting with Donnie ... and he went into the other room and Evan out came with a card that said 'Will' and he handed it to me. Then Evan ran away and came in with a card that said 'You.' I started crying and then Evan came into the room with the word 'Marry' - but spelled wrong. Last Donnie came out with Evan and Donnie's shirt said 'Me' and he got down on his knee ... Of course, I said 'Yes.' In that moment Evan yelled, 'I have another dad!' and it made all of us cry and I feel like the luckiest girl in the world and he's so wonderful," she said.

The couple - who started dating last summer - are unsure when they will marry. "We don't know yet," Jenny admitted.
