Rosie O’Donnell, comedian, actress, and talk show host, is set to tie the knot with girlfriend Michele Rounds.

Jam.Canoe reports that Rosie, now 49, told the studio audience of “The Rosie Show” earlier today, that she and the 40-year old headhunter from Chicago were engaged to be married.

A short while later, O’Donnell also used her Twitter to tell followers that she and Rounds were “so so so happy,” and even included a picture of her engagement ring.

This will be the comedian’s 2nd marriage after her break-up with former spouse Kelli Carpenter in 2007 -- in which the 2 women decided they would continue to co-parent their children.

On January 30, 2010, the award winning talk show host was the subject of an HBO special titled “A Family Is A Family Is a Family: A Rosie O'Donnell Celebration” – a behind the scenes look at the O’Donnell household, which focused on exploring the relationships in many types of families, those with 2 moms or dads, those who are in the care of a grandparent, single parents, adopted children, and traditional families.

So far, no wedding date has been set, nor has there been any indication of how large a part ex-wife Kelli Campbell will continue to play in the lives of the several children they raised together as a family.
