O'Donnell engaged to girlfriend

Rosie O'Donnell and her girlfriend Michelle Rounds are engaged.

The star's publicist and a spokesman for the Oprah Winfrey Network said the host of The Rosie Show told her studio audience about the engagement during a commercial break. The Emmy Award-winning talk show host's new program debuted in September, taping in Oprah's former Chicago studio.

Michelle is a 40-year-old headhunter for an information technology company.

Mum-of-four Rosie and former partner Kelli Carpenter publicly wed in San Francisco in 2004 - two weeks after the mayor authorised granting marriage licenses to same-sex couples - but the licenses were later voided by the California Supreme Court.

Rosie's publicist says a wedding date hasn't been set.
