Health scares prompted Rosie O'Donnell and her partner, Michelle Rounds, to move up their wedding date to June 9, 2012, after originally planning an August ceremony. "We married in private before [Michelle's] surgery, just the [two] of us," O'Donnell wrote about their nuptials in New York, done after Rounds was diagnosed with desmoid tumors. "When we r both well enough will have the wedding of r dreams surrounded by those we cherish."
