Rosie O’Donnell is married, People reports. She wed girlfriend Michelle Rounds June 9 — prior to her heart attack last week — but is only going public with the news now. The couple announced their engagement in December 2011, and moved up wedding plans after Rounds was diagnosed with desmoid tumors, a rare disease that only affects three out of every million individuals.

O’Donnell’s rep told People, “They got married but they haven’t had the wedding celebration.”

On her blog, O’Donnell wrote, “We married in private before [Michelle’s] surgery, just the [two] of us, When we r both well enough will have the wedding of r dreams surrounded by those we cherish. Thankful for the love and support so many have given us during these trying times, Including all of u stranger-friends connected thru invisible strands of wi fi.”

O’Donnell was previously married to Kelli Carpenter from 2004-2007.
