Many people became saddened when news broke that Playboy‘s Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carey were no longer a couple.
McCarthy later explained, “It’s tough to find a man’s man.”
“I don’t care if they have a big nose,” the singleton revealed in recent years following the split. “I don’t care if they’re bald. I just want someone who’s really sweet and who’s a perfect reflection of who I am now.”
But it looks like the time has come for McCarthy to change her Facebook status; fans will be delighted to find she has a new man. While she hasn’t confirmed she’s no longer single, she was spotted leaving a Beverly Hills steakhouse with Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher.
Rumors of the new romance started when the two were caught leaving Mastro’s, according to TMZ. According to reports, the two made a break for it, trying to stay unrecognized, out the back door of the eatery to a waiting SUV but were snapped by paparazzi.
The two have been on the market in recent years. Previously, McCarthy dated Carey for five years before calling it quits in 2010. And reports claim Urlacher, 33, has previously dated Paris Hilton.
McCarthy, 39, is best known for being named Playmate of the Year in the 1990s and then propelling the fame into an acting career. The actress has been married in the past. She married director John Asher in 1999, with whom she later had a son, Evan.
Evan was diagnosed with autism, which McCarthy has taken very seriously and become a fixture on the autism awareness scene. She’s served as the spokesperson for Talk About Curing Autism and has participated in various fundraisers to benefit Autism research. She’s also published a book on the subject “Louder Than Words: A Mother’s Journey In Healing Autism” in 2007.
Urlacher also has children. He has two daughters Pam and Riley with ex-wife Laurie Urlacher and a son named Kennedy with Tyna Robertson.
