Comedian and actor Rosie O’Donnell has confirmed her engagement to girlfriend Elizabeth Rooney.
However, Rosie, 56 – who went public with her relationship with the 33-year-old in November 2017 – said they have not decided any wedding date. “This is a long time in the future. We both decided that that would be best,” O’Donnell had said in an interview with a magazine.
Talking about the 23-year age gap between the two, Rosie said “Elizabeth doesn’t seem to care.”
“I keep telling her I’m too old for her. But she doesn’t seem to care,” the former ‘View’ co-host joked. “She’s like, ‘I was in the Army! I put my life on the line every day you think I don’t know who I want to date?’ I’m like, ‘Alright I guess that’s true.’ She has a lot of good points.”
Rosie was earlier married to Michelle Rounds, who died in September 2017 of suicide. The pair, who shared a five-year-old daughter Dakota, divorced in 2015. O’Donnell also shares four children with ex-wife Kelli Carpenter-O’Donnell.
