(WSCR) A few weeks ago, news began to circulate that Bears middle linebacker Brian Urlacher was involved in some type of romantic relationship with former Playboy Playmate of the Year Jenny McCarthy.

Now, a source told the Chicago Sun-Times McCarthy is “giddy” over her new relationship with Urlacher. The source said McCarthy loves how Urlacher “quietly takes care of her when they’re together.

“That may sound old-fashioned, especially since Jenny is very much her own person and a very contemporary, independent woman in many ways. But she loves the attention and the way he treats her. It’s very comforting.”
