Meet the Wahlbergs!
On the Season 3 premiere of Jenny McCarthy's reality show Donnie Loves Jenny, the 43-year-old surprised hubby Donnie Wahlberg by taking his last name — even though she once vowed she'd "never ever change my name ever never."
The radio host secretly took a driving test in the couple's hometown of St. Charles, Ill., and received her new license with the moniker "Jennifer McCarthy-Wahlberg" on it.
"There is nothing wrong with being Mrs. Wahlberg in my normal, every day life and keeping a stage name, like a stripper," the blonde beauty told her mom and sister of the decision.
Jenny added that it "feels like a new beginning" after being "independent so long." The actress' first marriage to John Mallory Asher ended in 2005.
As for Donnie's reaction, he couldn't be happier with the switch. "To actually see her name and my name together on her license and know that she’s taken on my name — my wife who worked just as hard to make her name mean something in the world — it adds such another level of pride to me," the 46-year-old singer said.
