(CBS News) Rosie O'Donnell and Michelle Rounds are married.
O'Donnell, who recently suffered a heart attack, revealed the news Monday in an blog post in which she referred to Rounds as her wife.
The pair were originally supposed to tie the knot in August but decided to exchange vows in a private ceremony in June after Rounds was diagnosed with desmoid tumors, a rare condition that affects between 2 and 4 out of every 1 million people. The couple, who got engaged last December, wed in a private ceremony before Rounds underwent surgery earlier this summer.
"We were to wed 10 days ago but her illness forced us to postpone the wedding, luckily, as i was in ICU that day, when it rains ... things grow like love and flowers, humans too," O'Donnell wrote on Monday.
O'Donnell and Rounds, a 40-year-old headhunter for an information technology company, plan to have another ceremony with family and friends in the future.
"When we r both well enough will have the wedding of r dreams surrounded by those we cherish," O'Donnell, 50, wrote.
Meanwhile, O'Donnell has been painting a lot since her heart attack earlier this month and is now selling her artwork on eBay, with proceeds going to the Desmoid Tumor Research Foundation.
