Rosie O’Donnell shows off her newborn adopted baby by posting photos to twitter. Dakota was born on Saturday, Jan. 5, 2013; she weighted a healthy 5 lbs, 5 oz. at birth.
Rosie married her current wife, Michelle Rounds in a private New York ceremony on June 9, 2012, shortly after Rounds was diagnosed an extremely rare, cancer-like disease.
“We are thrilled to announce the arrival of our daughter Dakota,” Rosie shared on Instagram Jan. 9, along with a snapshot of herself, Rounds, and their little bundle of joy. “With love and thanks — AMEN.”
This is Rosie’s fifth child, but her first with Rounds. She shares custody of her other four children with Kelli Carpenter, her ex-wife.
Carpenter and O’Donnell adopted three children Parker, 17, Chelsea, 15, Blake 13, and Vivienne, 10, was conceived through artificial insemination.
“When we are both well enough, [we] will have the wedding of our dreams surrounded by those we cherish,” Rosie blogged. “[We are] thankful for the love and support so many have given us during these trying times.”
