Jenny McCarthy’s back in the dating game — in more ways than one. The former “Singled Out” star is returning to television June 7 to help out singles looking to mingle on NBC’s new dating competition show “Love in the Wild,” but she also recently revealed that she’s “giddy” over her own new romance with rumored beau, Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher.
“I haven’t made too many comments other than the fact that I’m taking baby steps,” she tells Parade magazine. “We’ll see. But I’m giddy right now.”
McCarthy, 39, played it coy during a Q&A at NBC Universal’s Press Day on Wednesday (April 18), reports People.
“I’m interested in someone,” she said. But when a reporter specifically asked if the “someone” was Urlacher, she joked, “I don’t know what you guys are talking about. Um, you know, we shall see.”
McCarthy famously split from actor Jim Carrey in April 2010 after five years of dating and announced she was seeing Boston sports agent Paul Krepelka in January 2011.
