Alex O’Loughlin Marries Malia Jones

Hawaii surprise-O!

The Hawaii Five-O actor has a teenage son, Saxon, and Jones has a 4-year-old son, Spike, both from previous relationships.

Jenny McCarthy Engaged to Donnie Wahlberg

There’s a new bride-to-be on the block!

Jenny McCarthy announced on The View Wednesday that Donnie Wahlberg popped the big question (and presented her with a big rock) and she happily said yes.

“I just got engaged!” the star said on the show as she unveiled her hidden hand from behind the desk and then proceeded to jump around the set. “It’s a yellow sapphire,” she explained about the rock.

Crying as she talked about the proposal, McCarthy said her son Evan helped with the surprise last weekend, and explained how Wahlberg – who ended up coming onto the TV set Wednesday and kissing McCarthy – had gotten down on one knee.

“We don’t know yet,” she said when asked about the wedding date. Barbara Walters said if they tie the knot in September next year – McCarthy said that August was one consideration – the wedding could be held in her apartment.

The couple raised eyebrows when they first started dating last summer. But McCarthy, 41, and Wahlberg, 44, instantly found a connection.

One trait they share is “our work ethic,” McCarthy told PEOPLE last fall. “He understands my work schedule and he has his and I get it. And we’re both single parents and he’s trying to juggle all of that while I am too,” she says.

Now they will add wedding planning to their breakneck schedules. While McCarthy is taping her daytime talk show in New York City, the Blue Bloods actor recently finished filming season 4 of the series and will be busily preparing for an event in Las Vegas this July with New Kids on the Block.

This will be the second marriage for both. Wahlberg has two sons from his nine-year marriage to Kim Fey, which ended in divorce in 2008.

McCarthy’s son Evan is from her marriage to director John Asher, whom she divorced in 2005.

Brandy, Fiance Ryan Press Split, End Engagement

Brandy and Ryan Press split, end engagement: "no longer together"

The boy isn’t hers anymore. Brandy and fiance Ryan Press have broken up and ended their engagement, a rep for the R&B singer confirms to Us Weekly. “They are no longer together. The engagement is off, but the friendship is still on,” the rep says in a statement.

Back in late December 2012, Us was first to break news that the Grammy winner, now 35, was engaged to the music executive. “They decided to take a step back and reevaluate the relationship,” the rep explains. “Brandy is 35 now — that’s what her whole #35 on Twitter is about, becoming her own woman.”

It would have been the first marriage for The Game actress, who has a 12-year-old daughter Sy’rai with ex Robert Smith. “Brandy has a daughter and she still wants to be married and have more kids but she is working on so many other things right now,” the rep adds. Things with Press couldn’t be more amicable, however. “They haven’t ended things on a bad note and they still speak all the time.”

The “Boy Is Mine” singer gushed about her man in mid-2012 to Us, explaining that Press had restored her faith in men. “I had given up on love a long time ago. It just didn’t seem to work for me, so I was single for a very long time,” the Moesha star said. “I stopped looking for love and then I ran into my boyfriend. “He just loves me for who I am.”

Nick Carter Marries Lauren Kitt

Nick Carter Marries Lauren Kitt

Backstreet Boy Nick Carter wed Lauren Kitt in Santa Barbara on Saturday, a source confirms to PEOPLE – and it’s something the groom himself thought wouldn’t happen.

“I said I’d never get married,” the 34-year-old told PEOPLE last year, but he made it official with a Southern California wedding to his fiancée, a fitness expert and actress. “Go big or go home,” he jokes.

The happy couple, who got engaged in February 2013, held a rehearsal dinner on Friday night.

Carter’s bandmate A.J. McLean posted on Instagram Friday that he was getting ready to head to the rehearsal dinner for “the wedding that most of u thought would never happen, but I’m so happy it is finally!”

Backstreet Boy Howie Dorough also attended the pre-wedding bash.

In fact, in an interview with PEOPLE last year, Carter said that it was Dorough who helped him get up the nerve to propose to Kitt. “I asked Howie [for advice]. I was like, ‘I love her, and I don’t want to lose her.’ And he was like, ‘Just do it!’ ”

Carter popped the question with an enormous, 7-carat pear-shaped diamond in the Florida Keys, after sailing Kitt to a nearby island. Things didn’t totally go according to plan. “The boat was barely running. It died, like, four times,” he said.

They finally made it to the island and climbed a hill, where Carter surprised Kitt. “I got down on my knees and did that whole hoopla,” he said. “She was like, ‘Are you serious?’ And started crying. Now we call it Engagement Island.”

On April 5, Kitt posted a photo on Instagram of her and her father, saying, “Next Saturday the first man I ever loved with give me away to the love of my life. I love you Dad.”

Naya Rivera and Big Sean End Engagement

Naya Rivera is likely not in the most gleeful of spirits.

The sexy Glee starlet’s fiancé Big Sean has called off their engagement, his rep told PEOPLE in a statement on Wednesday.

“After careful thought and much consideration, Sean has made the difficult decision to call the wedding off,” the rep said.

“The recent rumors and accusations reported by so-called or fake sources are simply untrue. Sean wishes Naya nothing but the best and it is still his hope that they can continue to work through their issues privately. We will not be commenting again on this matter.”

Rivera, 27, whose engagement was confirmed in October, has gushed about being “just so in love” with the rapper.

Things seemed fine between the pair as recently as last month, with Rivera – whom Sean, 26, rapped about in the song “No New Friends” last year – telling PEOPLE they were “very deep” into their wedding planning.
