Actress and comedian Rosie O’Donnell who is vocally anti-Trump has announced she is engaged to her Army veteran girlfriend.
According to Fox News:
Rosie O’Donnell has confirmed she’s engaged to girlfriend Elizabeth Rooney after weeks of speculation that the couple were set to be wed.
The former “View” co-host revealed the news to People during the 15th-anniversary celebration of her organization, Rosie’s Theater Kids, in New York City. She told the outlet that while they’re definitely engaged, it’s far too soon for them to have picked out a wedding date. In fact, O’Donnell notes that it may be a long time away.
“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,” the star said of her new 33-year-old fiancee, a former Army veteran and boxer.
“She’s very much an equal, she’s very much her own person and loves what she does. She’s a pretty unbelievable young woman,” she added.
O’Donnell has continually spoken out against President Trump and at one point asking the military to remove him from office.
