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.
