NEW YORK (CBS/AP) — Rosie O’Donnell is getting married.
The 56-year-old confirmed to People magazine on Monday her engagement to 33-year-old Elizabeth Rooney.
O’Donnell says their wedding date is “a long time in the future.” They’ve had a long-distance relationship because O’Donnell lives in New York and Rooney lives in Boston, though O’Donnell has been appearing in the Boston area to film her Showtime series “SMILF.”
O’Donnell says the Army veteran is “a wonderful woman.”
“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.
Rooney is a mounted police officer with the Worcester Police Department.
O’Donnell married Kelli Carpenter in 2004, but they separated in 2007. She married Michelle Rounds in 2012 and they divorced in 2015.
