Jenny McCarthy and Brian Urlacher have broken up.

The Playboy model and Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher kept a low profile during their relationship, but she confirmed the split herself today.

"Brian and I have decided to turn our romance into an amazing friendship," she said. "I will continue to be the biggest cheerleader for him. Go, Bears!"

McCarthy, 39, played coy when reporters questioned her about her relationship in April, around the time romance rumors with Urlacher, 34, first began.

She said simply, "I'm giddy about someone."

The following month, she acknowledged, "I can confirm that yes, it's true, we are dating," but would only continue with, "Go, Bears – that's all I'll say."

Here's wishing both the best in their future professional and romantic endeavors. Couple of good catches back on the market at least.

Well, unless you're a Packer fan. Even so, the much-hyped July-August Jenny McCarthy Playboy photos speak for themselves, right cheeseheads?

Jenny McCarthy and Brian Urlacher, star of the NFL's Chicago Bears, are totally a couple, according to reports. Reports she confirmed this weekend.

The football great joined McCarthy Thursday night at Rockit Bar & Grill for the “Rescue Our Angels” event, benefiting Jenny’s autism charity.

Asked about Urlacher at The Generation Rescue Foundation event by WMAQ-Channel 5, Jenny McCarthy said, “Yes, it’s true, we are dating.”

Despite attempting to hit out-of-the-way meeting places, the couple hadn’t been able to hide their budding romance, try as they might.

“Let’s face it, it was really already out there, everybody knew it,” she said.

Also, the relationship apparently has reached a point where McCarthy feels it’s “the real deal and will last,” added a source close to her.

McCarthy clearly was not hiding anywhere or anything Friday. She joined about 30 close Urlacher friends to toast his 34th birthday.

Jenny, 39, recently announced that she'll be posing in Playboy again nearly two decades after it put her on the map.
