Chelsea Alliegro, Estranged Daughter of Rosie O'Donnell, Expecting First Child

by at .

Rosie O'Donnell's 20-year-old estranged daughter, Chelsea Alliegro, is expecting her first child with her husband, Nick Alliegro.

When we say estranged, we mean really estranged: Chelsea has already come out and said that Rosie will not be involved.

"It's very exciting and I'm looking forward to it," Chelsea confirmed in an interview with the Daily Mail (UK) published on Tuesday.

"But Rosie will not be in my child's life," she added.

"And no, I do not feel sad about that to be honest."

Not mincing words about the issue as you can see.

Chelsea, who was adopted by O'Donnell when she a baby, says she is nine weeks pregnant and thus, is due in early May 2018.

"I really don't care if I have a boy or a girl, I'm just hoping for a healthy baby," she told the paper, echoing a familiar sentiment.

Her husband, though? "Nick would really like a boy. But as far as I am concerned, so long as it's healthy, that's what matters."

The Texas resident says that she will consider her estranged mother's first wife, Kelli Carpenter, and Nick's mom as the child's grandmothers.

Chelsea also opened up about the loss of Rosie O'Donnell's second wife, Michelle Rounds, who died tragically late last week.

Michelle was found dead of an apparent suicide at the age of 46 last week; Rounds' cause of death has not been confirmed.

"I heard about it from my mother Kelli, she texted me," Chelsea told the UK publication. "She told me that Michelle had committed suicide."

"She wanted me to know before I found out any other way. I was shocked," Alliegro said, and she certainly wasn't alone in that respect.

"It was very sad to hear about her death."

To put it mildly, Chelsea and the former View host have had a strained relationship going back years and for a variety of reasons.

In August 2015, a concerned O'Donnell tweeted that Chelsea, then just 17 years of age, had run away from their home in Nyack, N.Y.

She was located, safe, nearly two weeks later in New Jersey with a man she had reportedly met through the dating app Tinder.

Soon after turning 18, Chelsea moved in with her birth mother in Wisconsin, and has little interest in a relationship with Rosie.

O'Donnell and Carpenter, 50, are also the parents of three other children together: Parker, 22, Blake, 17, and Vivienne, 14.
