CHICAGO, Dec. 5 (UPI) -- Rosie O'Donnell told the audience at Monday's taping of "The Rosie Show" in Chicago she is engaged to Michelle Rounds after less than a year of dating.
People.com said O'Donnell broke the news to her fans during a commercial break, not on the air.
Her publicist later confirmed the engagement to the celebrity news Web site.
No other details regarding when or how O'Donnell proposed were immediately available.
O'Donnell, 49, met the 40-year-old IT headhunter Rounds in a Starbucks coffee shop this year.
O'Donnell has four children from a previous marriage to Kelli Carpenter. Three of the kids were adopted and one daughter was conceived through artificial insemination with Carpenter giving birth to her.
