Rosie O’Donnell is engaged! The 56-year-old comedian announced the engagement to her girlfriend of a year, police officer Elizabeth Rooney. Radar reported that the League of Their Own star proposed back in the summer, but her new fiancé confirmed the speculation in a Tuesday Instagram post.

This will be O’Donnell’s third marriage. She was previously married to Michelle Rounds from 2012-2015, who later died of an apparent suicide last year. Her ex-wife Kelli Carpenter were wed in 2004 before annulling the marriage in 2007. She shares four children with Carpenter and one with the late Rounds.
The engagement to 33-year-old Rooney is not the only exciting news the stand-up comedian is celebrating. Daughter Chelsea is pregnant with the former talk show host’s first grandchild—a girl. Their mother-daughter relationship had been incredibly rocky in the last few years, but the SMILF star claims, “We’re on good, communicative terms now, and everybody is pulling for her.”
No word yet on when O’Donnell and Rooney will tie the knot. Hopefully, this engagement lasts longer than other comedians we know.
