The news came late Wednesday night when Rosie O’Donnell tweeted that she and her wife Michelle Rounds were proud moms of a new baby girl.
According to USA Today, Dakota was born Saturday, January 5 and weighed in at 5 pounds, 5 ounces.
While O’Donnell told Dr. Oz that her and Rounds were trying to get pregnant, Michelle was diagnosed with desmoids tumors, which may have prevented her from getting pregnant. Meanwhile, Rosie suffered a heart attack late last year.
However, the two were successfully able to adopt Dakota — she is the first child for Michelle and the fifth for Rosie.
Congrats to the happy couple!
