Jenny McCarthy is getting back in touch with her Midwestern roots – and wants her son to do the same, a source tells Celebuzz.

The Love in the Wild host was recently promoting her stint as Playboy’s July cover girl in her hometown of Chicago, IL, at the Ciroq Cabana Club, where she was ecstatic to be in familiar surroundings.

“I’m so glad to call Chicago home again!” the 39-year-old said.

Why is Jenny moving to the Windy City?

“I’ll still be filming my shows in L.A., but I’ll fly back and forth. I’ll be tailgating at all the Chicago Bears home games!”

Although she’ll be closer to her new love, Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher, contrary to reports, McCarthy’s not moving for him.

She’s doing it for the other love in her life – her 10-year-old son Evan.

“The move didn’t have anything to do with her current relationship,” says a source. “She wanted her son to grow up with her family and have a more normal life.

“She moved to the suburbs next to her best girl friend.”

However, NFL beau, 34, is a welcomed coincidence for the actress to return to the Windy City.

“Jenny is smitten with Brian. She likes that he’s a down to earth Midwest boy,” says the source.

The former Playmate’s last high profile relationship was with comedian Jim Carrey, whom she dated for more than five years.

McCarthy has been candid about her past with the 50-year-old actor, even saying that he turned his back on her autistic son after their split in 2010.

“I tell (Evan) that someday you’ll cross paths, meet again…(but) it’s hard. He’s been in therapy. It’s a process, he’s working on it.”
