O’Donnell, 49, who hosts “The Rosie Show” on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network, has been dating 40-year-old Rounds, a headhunter for an IT company, since the summer, when the couple met in a Starbucks.
The comedian told her Chicago studio audience during a commercial break Monday about the engagement and later tweeted a picture of Rounds wearing a ring with the caption “so so so happy.”
A wedding date has not been set, her spokeswoman said.
O’Donnell was previously married to marketing executive Kelli Carpenter after same-sex marriages were briefly legalized in San Francisco in 2004. The couple split in 2007, and have four children.
