Meet Michelle Rounds, Rosie O'Donnell's bride-to-be
So who is Michelle Rounds, exactly?
The future stepmother of O'Donnell's 4 children is a businesswoman who O'Donnell met in a Starbucks early this year. They first went public with their relationship in September, walking the red carpet at the Building Dreams for Kids Gala in New York City.
A headhunter at an IT company, Rounds took O'Donnell by surprise. O'Donnell jokes that when she met, she thought that the 40-year-old was actually 28 -- and heterosexual. "She didn't look like any lesbian I'd ever met," O'Donnell told People in October. "But it's fun and very exciting."
On Monday, while she celebrated her 12-year-old son Blake's birthday, O'Donnell was still basking in the glow of the new engagement. She even tweeted a close-up photo of Rounds wearing a sparkling diamond ring, writing, "So so happy."
