Rosie O’Donnell got married! Apparently it happened back in June! Rosie recently suffered a heart attack and we all found out about it, but her marriage seemed to sneak under the radar.
The actress/comedienne/talk show host and new wife Michelle Rounds announced their engagement in December 2011 and were wed June 9, 2012 in a private ceremony in New York. There was no immediate celebration or reception after the nuptials.
The duo was supposed to wed in August but sped up the proceedings when Michelle was diagnosed with desmoids tumors and needed surgery on June 14.
“We married in private before her surgery just the two of us,” Rosie wrote Monday on her blog.
“When we r both well enough
will have the wedding of r dreams
surrounded by those we cherish,” Rosie added.
Nearly two weeks ago, Rosie suffered a heart attack on the day that she and Michelle were planning to have a big blow-out wedding.
Fun fact: Rosie met Michelle at a Starbucks last summer. They had barely been dating for a few months before they announced their engagement in December.
This makes Rosie’s second marriage. She was previously married to Kelli Carpenter with whom she has four childrens.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
