Rosie O'Donnell says she is now engaged to a "wonderful woman," though the wedding probably won't happen until "a long time in the future." O'Donnell, 56, confirmed to People on Monday that she plans to marry Elizabeth Rooney, a 33-year-old police officer and Army veteran. "She’s very much an equal, she’s very much her own person and loves what she does," O'Donnell says. "She's a pretty unbelievable young woman." E! Online reports that the couple, who went public with their relationship in November 2017, currently live in different cities, with Rooney in Boston and O'Donnell living with daughter Dax in New York. (O'Donnell has explained why she thinks President Trump has gone "crazy" on her.)
