Rosie O’Donnell Marries Michelle Rounds Quietly

Rosie and Michelle tied the knot in a surprise ceremony in July after Michelle was diagnosed with desmoid tumors, a very rare disease that affects three in one million people. The couple got engaged in December 2011 and had planned a wedding in August, but moved it up after they learned of Michelle’s illness.

“It is such a rare tumor. It took them quite a while to get an accurate diagnosis,” Rosie’s rep Cindi Berger told People magazine at the time. “She had several gastrointestinal surgeries to remove the desmoid turmors. She is now on the road to recovery.”

The arrival of their baby is a surprise as well — neither woman announced that they were planning on adding another to their family!

Rosie and her ex, Kelli Carpenter, have four kids: Parker Jaren, 17, Chelsea Belle, 15, Blake Christopher, 13, and Vivienne Rose, 10.

Congrats to the happy family!
