It’s Baby #5 for Rosie O’Donnell and Michelle Rounds

What’s five kids after a heart attack?  Pure Joy!


Rosie O’Donnell and wife Michelle Rounds welcomed daughter Dakota through adoption on Saturday, Jan. 5, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

Little Dakota weighed 5 lbs., 5 oz., “moms and baby are healthy and happy.”

Tweeteing the happy news Wednesday, O’Donnell and wife snuggle closely to show off their bundle of joy in an Instragram moment. “We r thrilled to announce the arrival of [our] daughter Dakota – #withloveandthanks – AMEN,”

Rosie is mother to  Vivienne, 10, Blake, 13, Chelsea, 15, and Parker, 17. Last year, O’Donnell suffered a heart attack and started her own crusade on living a healthier lifestyle.  I loved her on Dr. Oz.

I have to say, I’ve loved Rosie since her days as a talk show host.  She’s real, blunt, and too the point.  I am so happy that she’s found joy and peace as she takes this journey of diapers, late-night feedings, and the joys of motherhood once again.
