Rosie O’Donnell has adopted a baby girl named Dakota, with her wife Michelle Rounds. Access Hollywood spoke to Rosie’s rep, who confirmed the news yesterday (January 9, 2013). Dakota was just four days old when the news broke, she was born January 5, 2013 and Rosie introduced her to the world, via her Instagram account.

“we r thrilled to announce the arrival of r daughter Dakota -#withloveandthanks — AMEN,” she told her followers and her rep added that Rosie, Michelle and Dakota are all “happy and healthy.” Rosie and Michelle married in June last year, in a private ceremony, after they discovered that Michelle had been diagnosed with desmoid tumors. Though they kept the news a secret to start with, they finally announced their news in late August.

Dakota is not Rosie’s first child though. The 50 year old comedian and TV personality has four children from a previous relationship with Kelli Carpenter, with whom she was in a relationship from 2004-7. Their children Parker, Chelsea and Blake were all adopted and Kelli gave birth to their daughter Vivienne Rose in 2002. Before dating Carpenter, O’Donnell was in a relationship with Tracy Kachtick-Anders, until they split in 2011. Rosie’s last major appearance on TV was on The Rosie Show, which featured on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN Network.
