Kelli Carpenter News

Kelli Carpenter-O'Donnell (born May 24, 1967) is a former Nickelodeon marketing executive and co-founder of R Family Vacations. Her wife is former talk show host Rosie O'Donnell.

Kelli and Rosie were introduced by Rosie's brother Daniel in 1997. On February 26, 2004, Kelli entered into a union with Rosie in San Francisco, two weeks after mayor Gavin Newsom authorized the granting of marriage licenses to same-sex couples, which was later determined to be legal under California law.

Rosie and Kelli are adoptive parents to children Parker Jaren (born May 25, 1995), Chelsea Belle (born September 20, 1997), and Blake Christopher (born December 5, 1999). Vivienne Rose was born November 29, 2002 to Kelli and Rosie through sperm donation.
