Rosie O'Donnell

Former TV talk show host Rosie O'Donnell has been an advocate for the adoption rights of gay parents since coming out in 2002. The 50-year-old and her ex-wife, Kelli Carpenter, have four kids (three were adopted), so it's no surprise that in 2004 the comedienne created Rosie's Family Cruise, where gay families can vacation and feel comfortable being together. O'Donnell is currently engaged to girlfriend Michelle Rounds.
