After being slightly secretive about her relationship status, comedienne and actress Rosie O'Donnell finally revealed what is going on in her love life. The 56-year-old is engaged!
O’Donnell is set to marry her girlfriend, Elizabeth Rooney. However, the wedding bells will not be heard soon. Rosie says that she and Elizabeth decided that the wedding will take place sometime in the very far future.
But that doesn’t stop the former View co-host from gushing over her gorgeous fiancée.
Love is in the air
Previously, Rosie O'Donnell talked about Rooney, who is 23 years younger than her, revealing her feelings to the rest of the world.
During her interview on The Howard Stern Show she said:
I am in love. It’s the first time I’ve dated someone younger than me and it’s a very trippy thing.
But despite such a big age gap, the two are happy together and it has never caused any issues in their relationship. Moreover, Rooney has discovered many things thanks to O’Donnell, including Barbra Streisand.
I get along so well with her, it’s kind of fascinating. The one thing that she doesn’t know? [Barbra] Streisand. I made her watch Funny Girl. She’s like, ‘It was good.’ I’m like, ‘Come on!’
We are certain Elizabeth has a lot to share with her fiancée, too. For example, funny stories from her job. Rooney is a police officer from Worcester and she has to ride a horse every day as she works in the mounted division.
Sure, working in showbiz can be very exciting and fun, but being an equestrian police officer sounds just as fascinating!
We congratulate the lovely ladies with their engagement and wish them all the best in their joint endeavors.
