And baby makes seven!

Rosie O’Donnell surprised fans on Tuesday when she tweeted a photo of herself and wife Michelle Rounds holding their brand new bundle of joy. “we r thrilled to announce the arrival of r daughter Dakota - #withloveandthanks – AMEN,” O’Donnell wrote beneath the pic, which features the two women cradling the tiny infant.

It’s not yet clear whether the couple adopted the baby or if Rounds gave birth. Back in January, O’Donnell told Dr. Oz on his daytime talk show that Rounds, now 41, was “trying to get pregnant.” After that interview, however, Rounds was diagnosed with desmoids tumors, a rare condition that requires multiple surgeries. A publicist for O’Donnell could not be reached for comment.

Though the women, who got engaged in December 2011, had planned on marrying last August, they bumped the wedding up to June 2012 in order to tie the knot prior to Rounds’ first surgery.

In August, O’Donnell made a few big announcements. The good news was she and Rounds had secretly married in June. The bad news? She had suffered a heart attack earlier in the month. "I am lucky to be here. Know the symptoms ladies, listen to the voice inside,” she wrote on her blog at the time.

O’Donnell is already mom to four older kids: Parker, 17, Chelsea, 15, Blake, 13, and 10-year-old Vivienne. She split from wife Kelli Carpenter in 2007 after nearly a decade together. Dakota is the first child for Rounds.
