First Rosie O'Donnell revealed her secret heart attack—now she's revealed her secret wedding. O'Donnell was set to wed Michelle Rounds, her girlfriend since September 2011, this month—but when Rounds was diagnosed with desmoid tumors, a very rare ailment, they were forced to postpone the wedding. Instead, they decided to privately get married on June 9, before Rounds' surgery, "just the 2 of us," writes O'Donnell in a new poem on her blog. She continues:

when we r both well enough
will have the wedding of r dreams
surrounded by those we cherish
thankful for the love and support
so many have given us
during these trying times

Had they kept their original wedding date, Rosie's heart attack would have ended up getting in the way, O'Donnell adds. Both are now recovering, and in lieu of wedding gifts, they've asked for donations to the Desmoid Tumor Research Foundation, Us reports. (More Rosie O'Donnell stories.)
