Looks like things are getting pretty serious between comedienne Jenny McCarthy and News Kids on the Block Singer Donnie Wahlberg.

The couple stepped out at a "Dancing with the Stars" charity event on Saturday at the Hotel Baker in St Charles, Ill. The 44-year-old singer/actor came to support his new gal, who hosted the event. The outing marked the couple's first red carpet appearance together.

Matching in black, the two kept close while walking the red carpet and posing for photos; Wahlberg wore a tux, while the TV personality stunned in a revealing low-cut dress.

Us Weekly reported back in July that the two had started dating. The couple spent the Fourth of July together and was spotted with pal and fellow NKOTB member Jonathan Knight and his boyfriend Harley.

"Yes, they recently started dating and are having a lot of fun," a source told Us Weekly. "They had a blast 4th of July hanging out with a bunch of their friends."

Wahlberg appeared as a guest on McCarthy's talk show, "The Jenny McCarthy Show," in early March. The pair went through a range of topics including what kind of dirty talking the boy bander used during sex.

"Do you talk dirty when you're having sex?" the 40-year-old talk show host asked Wahlberg, to which he chuckled and admitted, "I do."

"You do?" McCarthy said as the pair both sucked on bright red lollipops for the segment. "But you know, some guys do it wrong."

"Yeah, but I don't do it wrong," he said with a laugh.

With a new relationship to enjoy, both McCarthy and Wahlberg will also be keeping busy with their careers in the upcoming months, according to Us Weekly. Wahlberg's TV series "Blue Bloods" was renewed for Season 4 and the comedienne will be joining "The View" as a permanent co-host. Season 17 of "The View" premieres on ABC on Sept. 9.

McCarthy previously dated comedian Jim Carrey for more than five years before the pair pulled the plug on their relationship in 2010. She has one son Evan from a previous relationship.

Wahlberg has two children, Xavier Alexander Wahlberg and Elijah Hendrix Walberg, with his ex-wife Kim Fey. The couple were married for nine year but divorced in in 2008.
