Congratulations to Rosie O’Donnell (56) and girlfriend Elizabeth Rooney (33). In the middle of October 2018, O’Donnell publicly announced her engagement in an interview with People magazine, and we all got to have a closer look at her fiancee and at her engagement ring. Beautiful ring that is.
Rooney is a police officer and Army veteran, and she lives in Boston. They haven’t set a date yet, but O’Donnell said that the wedding is “a long time in the future. We both decided that that would be best.” They have been dating long distance with O’Donnell living in NY, and they’ve been dating for more than a year now.
Like other celebrity LGBTQ couples, O’Donnell and Rooney plan on having a beautiful wedding but haven’t planned it yet.
In the same interview, O’Donnell was asked about their 23-year gap. O’Donnell didn’t seem to mind, and of course, neither did Rooney, and she told the reporter: “I keep telling her I’m too old for her. But she doesn’t seem to care… She’s like, ‘I was in the Army! I put my life on the line every day you think I don’t know who I want to date?’ I’m like, ‘Alright I guess that’s true.'”

Rooney shared a photo on Instagram of her large emerald-cut diamond ring. It’s surrounded by nicely put diamonds and set on a split-shank band.
They have been dating long distance with O’Donnell living in NY, and they’ve been dating for more than a year now. In the same interview in People Magazine, O’Donnell said that “She lives in Boston now, and I live here in New York. It’s been a long-distance thing. It’s been great. I think she’s a wonderful woman.” O’Donnell has five children, Parker, 23, Blake, 18, Vivienne, 15, Chelsea, 21, and Dakota, 5.
