Rumors that actress/model Jenny McCarthy and Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher were dating began when the two were seen leaving Mastro’s steakhouse in Beverly Hills together. McCarthy essentially confirmed she has a new romance when answering questions to promote a new show she’s hosting.
“I’m interested in someone,” she said, per People.
When asked if she was dating a football player, she answered “I don’t know what you guys are talking about. Um, you know, we shall see.”
She also told Parade Magazine “I haven’t made too many comments (about the relationship) other than the fact that I’m taking baby steps. We’ll see. But I’m giddy right now.”
McCarthy is from Chicago and Urlacher has played his entire career for the Bears, so their romance seems like a natural fit. And as we all know quite well, Urlacher has a thing for curvy blondes from Illinois.
