Donnie Wahlberg will be Jenny McCarthy's first guest on 'The View'.
The 40-year-old blonde presenter will interview her new boyfriend on her first day co-hosting the ABC series on Monday (09.09.13).
A source told UsMagazine.com that the actor will appear on the show to promote his CBS series 'Blue Bloods', which was recently renewed for a fourth season.
Other guests will include singer Michael Buble, who welcomed his first child, Noah, with his wife Luisana Lopilato on August 27, who will perform on the morning show.
Jenny, who previously dated Jim Carrey, began a relationship with the New Kids On The Block singer, 43, in July after meeting him on the set of her VHI chat show 'The Jenny McCarthy Show' in March.
The single-mother, who has a son Evan, nine, with her ex-husband John Mallory Asher, recently moved from Chicago to New York City to work on 'The View' after securing the coveted position to replace Joy Behar.
Jenny is thrilled to be joining the series permanently, after appearing on it 17 times, and she cannot wait to start working with the other stars and in particular Barbara Walters, 83.
She recently said: "I'm beyond thrilled to be joining Barbara and the other amazing women at the table. I'd like to thank ABC for this great opportunity.
"I look forward to helping make hot topics a little bit hotter, and showing my mom that my interrupting skills have finally paid off."
Barbara - who is the only panellist to have been on the show since its debut in 1997 - announced earlier this year that she will retire from TV in 2014.
