Rosie O’Donnell Got Married!

Rosie O'DonnellRosie O’Donnell made headlines recently when the television personality suffered a heart attack earlier this month. Following the incident, which O’Donnell herself revealed to the public via a poetic passage on her blog, a decidedly happier bit of news has broken: O’Donnell has gotten married to her fianceé, Michelle Rounds.

O’Donnell, 50, has been involved with Rounds, 40, since 2011. The two announced their engagement in December. People reports that the pair got married in a private ceremony in New York in early June, prior to an operation Rounds underwent following a diagnosis with desmoid tumors. Their original plan was to get married in August, but they chose to engage in a private ceremony prior to the surgery in light of Rounds’ condition. O’Donnell once again takes to her blog to reveal the news to her public, publishing another poem on Monday, which includes the following passage:we were to wed 10 days ago

but her illness forced us to postpone the wedding

luckily -

as i was in ICU that day

when it rains …

things grow

like love and flowers

humans too

so on we go

we married in private

before her surgery

just the 2 of us

when we r both well enough

will have the wedding of r dreams

surrounded by those we cherish

thankful for the love and support

so many have given us

during these trying timesFollowing the health struggles that both O’Donnell and Rounds have endured this summer, the news of the couple’s marriage makes for an especially encouraging story.
