    Jenny McCarthy has met her match in fiancé Donnie Wahlberg.

    The loved-up couple, who got engaged in April, are currently beginning to plan their I-dos, and the blond bombshell recently opened up about her hubby-to-be in an interview with Boston.com.

    McCarthy, who admitted she would love "nothing more than to be considered a Bostonian," due to the Wahlberg's deep roots in Boston, recently brought her comedy show Dirty Sexy Funny to Beantown and dished on spending time with the Wahlberg fam.

    "I have no doubt we will be with the matriarch of the Wahlbergs," she said when asked about her plans for her trip. "We'll spend some quality time with her the night before just to get some family time in."

    Spending time with her future in-laws is clearly important to McCarthy, who revealed that she has been seeing more of Wahlberg's family—thanks to their reality TV show.

    "Of course not as much as I would like," she said when asked how much time she spends with Donnie's family. "Everyone has got such busy schedules. But the amount that I have with them, I'm surprised we've been able to manage it. Probably because of the show, Wahlburgers, it really provided like a reason for everyone to stop what they're doing and get together. If anything good comes out of reality shows, I've been witnessing one good thing, which is family coming together."

    As for whether the busy mom and bride-to-be ever has trouble balancing her work and family life?

    "I've realized that there's no such thing as balance, and if I do, it might be for five minutes," she confessed. "Kind of letting yourself be guilt free, or not being able to maintain that perfect kind of balance, I feel like I'm constantly seesawing it. You're either working too much or not working. It's really looking at what's in front of me and staying as present as I possibly can, that's the only way I can deal with our schedules, because it does get crazy. I mean, my schedule is busy, and I'd never met someone whose schedule is worse than mine. The fact that we've been able to spend as much time as we do together blows my mind and makes me realize that we were absolutely meant to be together."

    In addition to dishing on her love life, McCarthy was also asked about the criticism she has received for so openly expressing her views, specifically her controversial stance on vaccines.

    "I just feel like anyone who practices their freedom of speech is open to criticism," she said. "And that's kind of the world you have to live in and be okay with."
