JB Lacroix/WireImage(NEW YORK) — TV personality and former Playboy Playmate of the Year Jenny McCarthy had been dating Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher for a while, but McCarthy tells People magazine in a statement on Thursday, “Brian and I have decided to turn our romance into an amazing friendship.”

She adds, “I will continue to be the biggest cheerleader for him. Go, Bears!”

McCarthy was first spotted on a dinner date with Urlacher back in early April, but had spoken very little about her relationship with him.

The 39-year-old is this year’s July/August Playboy cover girl.
