Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey, who quietly started dating at the end of last year, plan on keeping the status quo.
“We’re happy with the way things are,” the 1994 Playboy Playmate of the Year tells TV’s Extra. “We have no plans to get married.”
The couple recently returned from Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’s wedding in Rome: “I was very happy to be there with him,” McCarthy, 34, said of her Italian trip with Carrey, 44.
The romance between the two shot into public view over the summer as the rubber-faced pair stepped out everywhere from a June 16 helicopter ride in Santa Monica to a Fiona Apple concert a few days later, PEOPLE reported in July.
Holding hands at a June 29 Radiohead concert in Los Angeles, the pair “were having so much fun,” said a fellow concertgoer. “It was like you were watching a romantic comedy.”
The weekend of July 28, the couple stayed at the $25,000-a-night Sky Villa in Sin City’s Palms Casino Resort. During their three-day getaway, they enjoyed in-room massages and hit the high-roller lounge for some blackjack.
Carrey, said a source close to him, “is very happy” about the relationship.
