It’s baby number five for Rosie O’Donnell!

The comedian and wife Michelle Rounds welcomed daughter Dakota through adoption on Saturday, Jan. 5, her rep confirms to WHO. Weighing in at 5 lbs., 5 oz., “moms and baby are healthy and happy.”

O’Donnell, 50, Tweeted the happy news Wednesday.

“We [are] thrilled to announce the arrival of [our] daughter Dakota – #withloveandthanks – AMEN,” she writes, sharing a snapshot of herself cuddling with Rounds and their new baby.

O’Donnell is already mum to children Vivienne, 10, Blake, 13, Chelsea, 15, and Parker, 17, with her ex, Kelli Carpenter.

After suffering a heart attack and dealing with Rounds’ desmoid tumors diagnosis last year, O’Donnell told WHO at the time, “I will gladly stay home. I want to try to work hard at getting myself healthy, on Mich and I getting started and maybe finding a baby.”

    Great! Congratulations! Looks like another dysfunctional family gets to raise another fatherless child. We are one F'd up country. Her desmoid tumors by the way are George Bush's fault.
