O’Donnell stated on the blog that the two were married in a very private ceremony, just before the surgery. It was just the two of them. They are both looking forward to when they will be healthy enough to have the wedding of their dreams surrounded by loved ones and friends.

This is O’Donnell’s second marriage, as she has four children with her ex, Kelli Carpenter. O’Donnell and Rosie O'Donnell and Wife on motorcycleCarpenter were married in San Francisco in 2004, only to split three years later.

O’Donnell had announced her heart attack in a poem she wrote on her official blog. She suffered the attack after she went to the aide of a woman who was stuck, trying to get out of her car. As the day and O’Donnell’s pain progressed, the star just tried to suffer in silence, even after googling her symptoms and dismissing her thoughts of a possible heart attack. Still, the star took a Bayer aspirin after she remembered a commercial.

The couple is hoping to raise awareness of Desmoid tumors and is matching all donations made to Rounds via Desmoid Tumor Research Foundation.  O’Donnell is also selling paintings on eBay to raise money for the organization.
