Bring your boyfriend to work day! As Jenny McCarthy settles into her new seat on The View this coming Monday, Sept. 9, the comedienne will be joined by a special someone — Donnie Wahlberg! On her very first day co-hosting the ABC series, McCarthy will be joined by her new beau as the first guest of Season 17. 

The pair have been anything but shy about their new relationship since Us Weekly first reported their romance back in July. McCarthy, 40, and the New Kids on the Block singer already made their official red carpet debut at a Dancing With the Stars Charity Event on Aug. 24. Wahlberg, 44, came out to support his new girlfriend as the TV personality hosted for the evening.

Wahlberg will be joining McCarthy's new co-stars — Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd and Barbara Walters — to promote his CBS series Blue Bloods, which was just renewed for a fourth season. Crooner Michael Buble — who just welcomed his first son, Noah, with wife Luisana Lopilato on Aug. 27 — will also start off the season as the first musical guest.

Season 17 of The View premieres Monday, Sept. 9 on ABC.
