Mrs. Donnie Wahlberg -- nee Jenny McCarthy -- has something to say to her fans: Thank you!

The controversial former host of "The View" tweeted her first selfie since marrying the New Kids On the Block alum over the weekend.

"Mr & Mrs Wahlberg, checking in from heaven. Thank you for all of your well wishes. #happy," McCarthy tweeted late Tuesday.

The former Playboy bunny, 41, shared a shot of her new husband gazing lovingly (if goofily) at her while kissing her hand -- the same hand that's boasting a new wedding band and gargantuan engagement ring. The writer-producer, 45, also posted the same tweet and pic from his account.

The 1990s icons wed over the long weekend, her rep confirmed. The Sirius XM host and the "Blue Bloods" actor reportedly got hitched on Sunday at the Hotel Baker just outside Chicago, McCarthy's hometown.

Just before the wedding, Wahlberg gave a shout out to his NKOTB fans -- the "BHs," short for Blockheads -- for their love and support of his union.

"To my darling BH's... Every tweet. Every thought. Every wish. Every kind word. Every kind gesture. Means so much. Thank you! #loveeternal," he wrote.

The pair met on the set of McCarthy's old VH1 talk show, "The Jenny McCarthy Show" and started dating soon after a joint appearance on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live," according to reports.

They took their relationship public in July 2013 and confirmed reports when they appeared together at a "Dancing With the Stars" charity event in August.

Wahlberg, the older brother of actor Mark Wahlberg, proposed in April with a 10-carat yellow sapphire engagement ring and surprised "The View" panel on national television while McCarthy was recounting his proposal.

It's the second marriage for both of them.

Oh, oh, oh-o. Oh, oh, oh-o. Follow me on Twitter @NardineSaad.
