Michelle Rounds Adopts with Wife Rosie O'Donnell, Daughter Named Dakota
ROSIE O'DONNELL and her wife Michelle Rounds, who tied the knot last summer, have welcomed their new adopted baby daughter to their home. They have named her Dakota - a name, for which, we must commend O'Donnell and Rounds on, because it isn't entirely ridiculous, bravo.
O'Donnell announced the news via her Twitter page, with an attached photo of the couple with the baby, wrapped up warm. "we r thrilled to announce the arrival of r daughter Dakota -#withloveandthanks - AMEN", she said. The photo looks as though it was taken in a hospital and the baby seems to be pretty much a new born, so there's speculation that they had opted to adopted the baby prenatally.
2012 was a tough year for both O'Donnell and Rounds. Their wedding was timed to be just before Michelle underwent surgery to for her desmoid tumors. That was in June, then in August, O'Donnell had a heart attack. "I will gladly stay home," O'Donnell told People Magazine, after the event. "I want to try to work hard at getting myself healthy, on Mich and I getting started and maybe finding a baby."
Dakota is O'Donnell's fifth child, as she already has four kids with her ex-wife, Kelli Carpenter. With the arrival of Dakota, hopefully 2013 will prove to be a little better.
