Rosie O'Donnell and her wife Michelle Rounds have welcomed a new baby girl into their family.

The comedic entertainer shared a family photo and tweeted, "we r thrilled to announce the arrival of r daughter Dakota - #withloveandthanks - AMEN."

According to O'Donnell's rep, the adopted infant was born on Jan. 5 and weighed 5 pounds, 5 ounces.  "Moms and baby are happy and healthy."

Suffice it to say that 2012 was eventful for the couple.  They got married in NYC in June and both endured serious health issues that included a heart attack suffered by Rosie in August and a diagnosis of desmoid tumors for Michelle, a rare and life-threatening disease.

Rosie has four other adopted children - Blake, Vivienne, Parker and Chelsea - from a previous relationship with Kelli Carpenter.
