Its not often that we get an inside look at the personal lives of celebs. I mean sure, we always have access to the never-ending tabloid gossip on our smartphones or in line at the grocery store, but most celebrities use social media to promote something theyre working on, shout out to some fans, or even show that theyre just like us, and equally obsessed with Target.
Nonetheless, we rarely see the more intimate details of their life and relationships.
But on Tuesday, Jenny McCarthy gave us the glimpse weve all been hoping for.
The 44-year-old actress and comedian has been married to New Kids on the Block member Donnie Wahlberg since 2014. In celebration of his birthday this week, Jenny posted a love letter to her husband along with the photo above.
For the past three months I have watched you pour out your heart and soul. I have seen you give hundreds, if not thousands, of hugs. Ive seen you make every person you came into contact with feel like they were somebody special, because you do believe they are special. You have entertained all of us.
In awe of his service to others, she reflected on the hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollarsDonnie has tipped hardworking people in Waffle Houses all over the country.
Jenny also gushed about her husbands determination and commitment to his career:
Ive seen you get on a plane to work at Blue Bloods all day, only to get on an airplane that very same day to go perform your heart out at your concerts. Back on a plane then againand repeat.
But even his work ethic cant compare to the way he makes those around him feel:
Ive seen you do all this all while making sure your fans felt appreciated. That our sons felt loved. And that your adoring wife felt cherished.
Family is a priority, but loving on his fans is a close second. Jenny shares some of Donnies selfless moments shell never forget. Like the time he held a disabled woman in his arms so shed be able to dance with him, or paying for the funerals of fans who left us too soon.
Giving the shoes off your feet, the coat off your back, and the hat off your head to those whose lives changed because you did. Ive seen you give people jobs, lead with mindfulness, stay present while those around you slept, (myself included).
Jenny closed the love letter with her favorite thing about Donnie:
I watched you do this with a smile on your face, and with unconditional love in your heart, with no sleep in your tired bones. Never in my life have I met anyone who has gone out of their way physically, emotionally, spiritually and lovingly for the sake of others. I dont know anyone like you. And I never will. I just know how lucky I am to have you. I love you, Mrs. W
If KNOTB songs werent already making you swoon like a teenager again, Jennys birthday tribute to her husband just might do the trick.
