Comedienne O’Donnell who is now fifty has announced the joyous news on her blog, a week after she nearly suffered a near-fatal heart attack.
‘We married in private… just the two of us,’ Rosie wrote.
‘When we are both well enough we will have the wedding of our dreams, surrounded by those we cherish, thankful for the love and support so many have given us during these trying times.’
They had planned the wedding for this month but pushed it forward after Michelle who is forty one years old had been diagnosed with a rare and often fatal disease.
‘My wife Michelle was diagnosed with desmoid tumors in June,’ Rosie explained. ‘A mysterious rare, too often fatal disease that affects 3 in a million people.’
Rosie‘s representative has told People magazine that the couple have not yet had thier wedding celebration. The wedding is Rosie‘s second. She was previously married to Kelli Carpenter, with whom she has four children.
