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.
