Rosie O'Donnell Engagement Shocker
They had no clue she was gay! That's right, Michelle Rounds' parents never knew their daughter was gay until they saw a photo of her with Rosie in People magazine.
"It totally hit us out of left field," Rounds's father was quoted as saying. Her parents, who live in upstate New York, added:
"We only found out about Michelle liking girls when all this came out about them a few weeks ago. Its been hard to take. We always held out hope that Michelle would eventually find a nice guy to marry, settle down and have kids."
Meanwhile, O'Donnell opened up about their engagement on her show Tuesday night on the OWN network.
"Somebody tweeted it and by the time I got home it was everywhere. Everywhere," said O'Donnell.
O'Donnell and Rounds met at a Starbucks in Manhattan last summer.
