Rosie O'Donnell and Michelle Rounds welcome daughter Dakota

By Sarah Burbank-Douglas,

Rosie O’Donnell and wife Michelle Rounds have welcomed their fifth child.

A rep for the comedian confirmed the new daughter to Access Hollywood. O’Donnell and Rounds adopted baby Dakota, who was born Jan. 5, weighing 5 pounds 5 ounces.

The former talk show host shared a photo of her growing family on Instagram, captioning the photo, “we r thrilled to announce the arrival of r daughter Dakota - #withloveandthanks – AMEN.”

Dakota joins brothers and sisters Parker, Chelsea, Blake and Vivienne Rose- all children from O’Donnell’s previous relationship with Kelli Carpenter whom she was with from 2004-2007.

According to CNN, a rep for the couple states that, “Moms and baby are happy and healthy."

O’Donnell wasn’t always healthy, though. She suffered a heart-attack in summer 2012. It was revealed that her artery was 99 percent blocked. She had a stent put in place following the health scare.

Access notes that former OWN personality and Rounds wed in an ultra-secret wedding in June 2012.
