Mrs Carter: It’s a girl for Rosie and wife Michelle – time to break out the pink champagne!
Rosie O’Donnell and wife Michelle Rounds have only been married 7 months, but they are already expanding their family. The couple announced their engagement in December of 2011 and married in a very private wedding ceremony on June 9, 2012 and now they have become parents to a beautiful baby girl they adopted named Dakota. Their little girl was born on Saturday, January 5 and weighed in at 5 lbs. and 5 ounces. A representative for the couple released a statement to US Weekly about their little bundle of joy, saying that “moms and baby are healthy and happy”.
O’Donnell also shared the news of their new arrival with her fans through her Instagram account on January 9th along with a photo of herself, Michelle and Dakota. She wrote: “We are thrilled to announce the arrival of our daughter Dakota. With love and thanks — AMEN.” Both Rosie and Michelle have struggled with health scares over the past year as Rounds was diagnosed with desmoid tumors and O’Donnell suffered a heart attack in August 2012, so we are hoping that with baby Dakota’s arrival that this will be the beginning of a positive path for the family and that both women will continue to get stronger everyday.
This is O’Donnell’s fifth child as she shares Parker, Chelsea, Blake and Vivienne with her ex-wife Kelli Carpenter.
