After nearly five months of dating bliss, the blonde sexpot and the former boy-band star are having their first lover’s quarrel: He wants more kids – and she’s done making babies!

“It drove a stake right through Donnie’s heart when Jenny broke the news that she doesn’t want more kids,” a source revealed. “She already has one son and insists having another child is NOT in her future.

“Jenny tried to let Donnie down easy because she knew he really wanted her to bear his chil­dren. But he took the news harder than she anticipated, and now it’s caused a lot of tension in their relation­ship.”

Donnie, 44, and Jenny, 40, began dating shortly after he appeared on her VH1 talk show, “The Jenny McCarthy Show,” in late March. Since then, Donnie has real­ly put it all on the line for the former Playboy Playmate – even feuding with his devout Catholic brother Mark, 42, who doesn’t approve of the way she openly talks about sex and her irreverent attitude toward Catholicism.

Jenny already has an 11-year-old autistic son, Evan, from her former marriage to actor/director John Asher. Donnie has two children, Xavier, 20, and Elijah, 12, with his ex-wife, Kim Fey.

“Donnie is disappointed because he stood up for Jenny against his brother during some pretty heated arguments – that were about her – and now he feels like she’s not listening to him,” another source added. “Aside from feeling like she’s reaching that age where she’s too old to give birth, Jenny is just wildly ambitious and very focused on her career.

“She feels so strongly about not having any more children that she’s willing to risk losing Donnie, and that’s the thing that hurts him most of all.”
