Rosie O'Donnell engaged to girlfriend Michelle Rounds

Rosie O'Donnell is getting married again
Rosie O'Donnell is putting a ring on it -- or, to be precise, the finger of her girlfriend, New York businesswoman Michelle Rounds.

O'Donnell told the audience of her eponymous OWN talk show that she and Rounds will make the walk down the aisle come Christmas, Us Weekly confirmed. The couple have been dating since September.

Recently, O'Donnell opened up to her pal, Howard Stern, about the courtship, comparing Rounds to Julianne Moore and maintaining that her girlfriend was out of her league (we'd love to make an "A League of Their Own" joke, but we're telling you more about the engagement).

Clearly Rounds is satisfied with her funny gal. No location has been set for the nuptials, which will be a second altar visit for O'Donnell. She married Kelli Carpenter in 2007, and split three years later. O'Donnell and Carpenter share custody of four children.
