PHOTO Rosie O’Donnell welcomes daughter Dakota with wife Michelle Rounds

Rosie O'Donnell wife Michelle Rounds and baby daughter Dakota

It’s a girl for comedian and talk show host Rosie O’Donnell and wife Michelle Rounds as the couple shared a photo today of their new daughter Dakota! Rosie posted the photo above on Instagram along with the caption, “we r thrilled to announce the arrival of r daughter Dakota – #withloveandthanks – AMEN”

The announcement comes as a bit of a surprise to fans. Rosie said during an appearance on Dr. Oz in January of 2012 that she and Michelle were “trying to get pregnant,” but had been silent about it since.

UPDATE – It seems the couple was able to keep the pregnancy secret because Michelle wasn’t pregnant! O’Donnell’s rep told that Dakota was adopted by the couple. She was born on January 5 and weighed 5 pounds, 5 ounces at birth. “Moms and baby are happy and healthy,” the rep adds.

Rosie O’Donnell has since shared a couple of additional photos of Dakota – one with Michelle and one with her:

^ “Nothing compares to this …”

Dakota is Rosie, 50, and Michelle’s first child together, but will be joining Rosie O’Donnell’s four other children: Blake, Parker, Chelsea and Vivienne (from her previous marriage to Kelli Carpenter).

It’s been one Hell of a year for O’Donnell, who married Rounds in June before suffering a heart attack in August. The two plan to have a bigger, public wedding later this year — with Dakota the center of attention I’m sure!

Congrats to mom and mom!

    Two sick and disgusting eurasian fat lezbos calling an adopted eurasian junk kid the name of Dakota? These two lezbo fatsoes won’t be living in America long. They’ll be moving back home soon enough, one way or another.

    • Dez

      What exactly have they done to you that you hate them so much? You should probably move far away before your hatred rubs off on smarter people.

      • All Coasts

        Reality Bites is obviously an American, Sir Dez. Americans don’t want your fat faggy fraud babies junk in their world. They’re letting you know it. It’s an American thing. You wouldn’t understand. Got it. Good. Make it stay got.

        • Dez

          I’m an American. I don’t want Reality Bites in America. Let people love who they love. Who cares as long as they’re not doing anyone any harm?! Small minded humans disgust me.

          • Tumblr T

            I really doubt you’re American, “Dez”, HAHA, but curious try, but you sure sound like you have enough of your own anger mismanagement and sexual frustration problems which is the way of your kind, so I’ll leave you to your own frustrations. Maybe your Queen can give you some advice on how to handle your little problem.

            • Dez

              For real? My name is Desirae, idiot. Try expanding your horizons. What exactly did you think I was? Born and raised in NJ.. I am an incredibly happy woman who just wishes everyone can have as much happiness as I do. INCLUDING gays and lesbians, oh my! I even wish the best for you, bigot :)

              • Peter

                After calling everyone names and hurling accusations and whatnot at them all you then call this guy an idiot and go on to claim you’re from New Jersey and have expanded horizons. Oh, ya, like you even know where New Jersey is, or where the horizon is for that matter. Can you not just accept what others have to say and leave them alone about it and stop your trolling and all that? Honestly.

        • Haylee

          I am American but I honestly think its a nice thing. I know a same sex couple who are currently expecting their first. Its their way of life. Why question the way they live or what makes them happy?

          • Wes

            You’re NOT American, “Haylee”, you’re a troll. Bulletin : Same sex “couples” CAN’T HAVE CHILDREN, TWIT! Troll needs to get a life and then get some, for real! Life isn’t show-biz, idiot!

    • Miranda

      This is awful…I can respect the fact that you don’t agree with same sex relationships, but it is immature to refer to them in such a derogatory manner, and to call a child “junk” is just wrong… God bless that baby

      • Tina-Louise

        There’s nothing awful about it. It’s a caucasian kid with a fake name adopted by two lezbo caucasian fatties. It’s a junk kid, pure and simple. That’s the awful part about it, right there.

  • Nathan

    A baby? I don’t even know how two women can have sex – unless they just scissor or something.

  • Dez

    Hey Starcasm.. How can you post a story like this and leave the comments open for nasty people to say nasty things about people who don’t deserve it, but close the comments for idiotic teen mom girls who (most of the time) deserve the bashing?

    • Miranda

      I agree…I am apalled by the things people are saying. I think everyone is entitled to their opinion, and I can respect that they might not have the same views as I do on same sex marriage, relations, etc…But this stuff they are saying is really hurtful, and sad.

      • Dez

        I don’t think it’s necessarily ‘people’ as much as one person with too much time on his hands.. Not to mention too much hate. It’s just sad. My grandparents were racists who absolutely disagreed with same sex marriage.. But they never bragged about it.. The younger generations are supposed to be more open minded.. Instead they are obsessed with bashing people online hidden behind their computer from the comfort of their own homes (mommy and daddy’s homes probably). Someone earlier said I have anger issues.. It’s not anger. It’s sadness. We are supposed to be growing and becoming more tolerant….. Not this. I grieve for the next generations.

        • Ted N.

          If anyone’s trolling this site it’s you and Miranda. You think everyone is one person? You’re a crackpot! You’re the only ones who write like the same freaking troll. You’re the only ones on this whole site who are working against what everyone else writes with your trolling everyone else in desperate anger like that. How do you expect anyone to take that? You better come to grips with your abused past, fruitcake, and get a life.

          • Dez

            Lol.. Well this was awfully fun and obviously pointless.. Glad I wasted my breath. Try making a few more usernames and posting a couple more times. Nighty night sweetheart.. If you forget to wake up in the morning, it’s probably for the best. Toodles! :)

            • Ole Lamp

              Dez. Hes right on about you being a crackpot fruitcake because you sure are. You write like a nut!!!! geeezwhiz you really take the cake!!!!

              • Lou

                This Dez writes like a retarded simpleton, an angry problem child. Needs help. 8(

            • Technical Analysis

              WOW! Dez is a WHACKO with serious mental problems. Either that or he’s a political troll that went all wrong with his little mission to troll America with their gay social junk. and their Rosie junk. From the way they write, Dez and Miranda are the same person so he tries to say EVERYONE ELSE is a single person. Genuine SCREWBALL FAIL tactic of a GENUINE SCREWBALL TROLL! Now we see how the Obama trolls helped to get Obama into Americas White House. NASTY piece of work!

              • Miranda

                I don’t see any anger coming from my comments. You are entitled to your opinion, as I am to mine. Dez was simply defending her opinion as you are yours. YOU are the one getting so worked up about this subject, projecting anger… The only reason I commented was because I felt it was unfair to refer to a innocent child as junk. That is all :)

                • Vinza

                  Well, according to everyone here you and Dez and Haylee are one and the same troll commenting from far away overseas and from reading your comments I believe it. The other commenters here seem to be very square and logical and up-front about everything and all you do is rant and rave like an angry psychopathic lunatic troll. So, I will ignore your ludicrous and preposterous comments and formulate my own free opinions about things, if you don’t mind or not. I think things are not quite right with the O’Donnell adoption and baby naming thing and I’ll agree with the commenters who specified the reasons as to why. Good day.

                  • miranda

                    That is absolutely fine… I have no problem with you stating your opinion, and who am i to challenge yout views on same sex relations? You, as am I have your own beliefs, there is nothing wrong with that. I assure you that Im not dez or haylee, lol. My email notifies me when someone has replied to my comment. I am removing myself from this conversationbecause there is absolutely no reason for you to call me a lunatic. Your words are hurtful, and harsh. As i stated before, you appear to be the one projecting anger. so, goodbye.

  • Sara

    I’m so happy for them!! 😀

    Two sick and disgusting eurasian fat lezbos calling an adopted eurasian junk kid the name of Dakota? These two lezbo fatsoes won’t be living in America long. They’ll be moving back home soon enough, one way or another.

  • eddie

    cant believe i just wasted my time reading these comments smh. clearly the person who uses the word troll in every comment is the same person. lol get a life

    • Dez

      Lol right?! I stopped responding because it was getting so ridiculous but I’m so glad someone else pointed out exactly what I was thinking.. And to that ONE person, using a hundred different names, why would I post like 10 comments from my name and then make up a new one? Some people are just so intelligent haha.. I’m done with this conversation, congrats Rosie, Michelle and Dakota :)

      • Miranda

        What’s even funnier is that they probably went through to vote up on their comments a million times. lol

  • :))))))))
