NEW YORK, Dec. 30 (UPI) -- Rosie O'Donnell's publicist says the comedian and radio star is dating an artist from Texas.
O'Donnell confirmed last month that her longtime partner Kelli Carpenter moved out of the home they shared with their four children two years ago. O'Donnell and Carpenter were married in California in 2004.
The star's representative told People magazine Wednesday that O'Donnell is now dating Tracy Kachtick-Anders.
Like O'Donnell, Anders is a champion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender parenting and adoption issues. She also is the mother of six children, five of whom are adopted, People said.
Three of O'Donnell and Carpenter's kids are also adopted, while the fourth was born to Carpenter as a result of artificial insemination.
