Rosie O’Donnell announces engagement

Rosie O'Donnell has confirmed she's engaged to girlfriend Elizabeth Rooney after weeks of speculation that the couple were set to be Wednesday.

The former View co-host revealed that a wedding date has not been set and may not be anytime in the near future, saying "this is a long time in the future".

"She lives in Boston now, and I live here in NY, [so] it's been a long-distance thing", said O'Donnell, who also bragged about Rooney being an undefeated boxer during her time of service.

And about that 23-year age gap?

'I keep telling her I'm too old for her. But she doesn't seem to care... "It's been great. I think she's a wonderful woman".

Speaking with Live Science , NASA ice scientist Kelly Brunt said the shapes of the icebergs are formed by a fairly common process. A giant and unusually shaped rectangular iceberg has been spotted by NASA scientists floating in the Antarctic.


The 56-year-old opened up about the progression of her relationship while speaking at a New York City anniversary event for her arts education organization, Rosie's Theater Kids.

Rooney showed off a photo of her new bling on Instagram with the caption, "Y E S". "We both decided that that would be the best". "She's a pretty unbelievable young woman", she added. Nobody ever does, but I do sometimes. "She's very much her own person and loves what she does".

O'Donnell and Rooney have been together publicly since November 2017, two months after O'Donnell's ex-wife, Michelle Rounds, died of an apparent suicide.

O'Donnell married Kelli Carpenter in 2004, but they separated in 2007.
