RadarOnline.com first reported that the 56-year-old former talk-show host popped the big question to her girlfriend Elizabeth Rooney, 33, over the summer. In fact, O'Donnell notes that it may be a long time away.

The pair emerged publicly almost a year ago, and have been doing "a long-distance thing" amid the distance between NY and Boston.

O'Donnell said that the age difference between them - 23 years - is no issue for Rooney. "But she doesn't seem to care", she told People. "It's been great. I think she's a wonderful woman", O'Donnell said. "I put my life on the line every day you think I don't know who I want to date?"

Rosie O'Donnell is getting married. She told the outlet that while they're definitely engaged, it's far too soon for them to have picked out a wedding date. "We both decided that that would be best". Nobody ever does, but I do sometimes.

Speculation about their engagement started earlier this month when O'Donnell updated her Instagram bio with an R followed by a diamond ring emoji. "She's a pretty unbelievable young woman", she added. "She's very much an equal, she's very much her own person and loves what she does", Rosie continued. Rounds and O'Donnell divorced in 2015 after three years together.
