Rosie O'Donnell Is a Mom Again!


The year is getting off to an excellent start for Rosie O’Donnell and her wife, Michelle Rounds. Today, they became parents of a baby girl!

Rosie shared this photo on her Instagram account and tweeted this message: “we r thrilled to announce the arrival of r daughter Dakota – #withloveandthanks AMEN.”

This is the couple’s first child together, but Rosie also has four other children from her former marriage to Kelli Carpenter. Rosie and Michelle were married last summer.

Rosie didn’t share any other details about their baby, but it’s quite possible that Dakota was either adopted or born through a surrogate. Both spouses were sidelined by illness last year; Michelle was diagnosed with a rare cancer-like disease, and Rosie suffered a heart attack that landed her in the hospital.

Whatever the journey, Rosie and Michelle are delighted to be expanding their family. Congratulations to them both!
