Rosie O'Donnell is a married woman once again.

The talk show host revealed on her blog today that she and Michelle Rounds married on June 9. They were originally supposed to tie the knot this month, but after Rounds was diagnosed with desmoid tumors earlier this summer, a rare condition that can be life-threatening, they decided to wed before her surgery.

"We married in private before [Michelle's] surgery, just the [two] of us," O'Donnell wrote. "When we r both well enough will have the wedding of r dreams surrounded by those we cherish."

O'Donnell's rep confirmed to People, "They got married but they haven't had the wedding celebration."

It's been a summer of surprises for O'Donnell, 50. She suffered a heart attack earlier this month and wrote on her blog that it's a "miracle" she's still alive.

O'Donnell was previously married to Kelli Carpenter. They divorced in 2007.
