Rosie O'Donnell Married Michelle Rounds In Private June 9 Ceremony

Posted: Updated:

Rosie O'Donnell has tied the knot.

People magazine reports that the 50-year-old O'Donnell tied the knot with fiancee Michelle Rounds in a private June 9 ceremony. O'Donnell's rep Cindi Berger told the magazine that although they originally had planned to wed in August, they opted to move the ceremony ahead of Rounds' first surgery since being diagnosed with desmoid tumors, a rare disease that only affects three out of every million people.

"They got married but they haven't had the wedding celebration," Berger told the magazine.

O'Donnell also announced the news on her official blog, writing:

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

It's a spot of good news for O'Donnell, who announced on her blog last week that she'd suffered a heart attack.
