Today, we learned that comedian and former The View co-host Rosie O’Donnell has become a grandmother for the first time after her daughter Chelsea gave birth on Wednesday, Dec. 19. Chelsea and her boyfriend, Jacob Bourassa, had a baby girl who they named Skylar Rose. Rosie, of course, is pretty excited about the new addition as she took to Twitter to share a photo of her first grandchild. And we’re taking this chance to let you all know that Chelsea isn’t Rosie’s only child — in fact, Rosie has five kids. We bet you didn’t know that!
Rosie has been married twice in the past. She was first hitched to Kelli Carpenter, a marriage that started and was annulled by a California court in 2004, although the pair had known each other for 10 years beforehand. Rosie and Kelli separated in 2007. A few years later, Rosie married Michelle Rounds. The second time around, Rosie’s marriage lasted from 2012 to 2015. Two years after their divorce, Michelle tragically took her own life in 2017. But through those two relationships, Rosie has been fortunate enough to welcome five children. And since you probably don’t know much about Rosie’s kids, it’s only right we give them the spotlight for a few minutes.
