ROSIE O’DONNELL CONFIRMS ENGAGEMENT TO ARMY VETERAN

Rosie O’Donnell is hoping that the third time’s the charm with girlfriend Elizabeth Rooney. The comedian tells People that the wedding "is a long time in the future."

Rooney, 33, a Boston cop, an Army veteran and an undefeated Army boxer, shared an image of her engagement ring on Instagram. The 56-year-old says that despite their age difference, Rooney is "very much an equal, she’s very much her own person and loves what she does. She’s a pretty unbelievable young woman."

"I keep telling her I’m too old for her," the comedian quipped. "But she’s doesn’t seem to care. She’s like, ‘I was in the Army! I put my life on the line every day, you think I don’t know who I want to date?’ I’m like, ‘All right, I guess that’s true.’ She has a lot of good points."

O’Donnell was previously married to Michelle Rounds, who died by suicide in 2017, and Kelli Carpenter.
