Los Angeles - Rosie O'Donnell secretly married her girlfriend Michelle Rounds in June.

The talk show host revealed the surprising news on her blog Rosie.com on Monday, explaining the couple brought their nuptials forward after Michelle was diagnosed with desmoid tumours, a rare and often fatal disease, which only affects three in every one million people.

Rosie wrote: "My wife michelle was diagnosed with desmoid tumors in june a mysterious rare - too often fatal disease that affects 3 in a million people

"We were to wed 10 days ago but her illness forced us to postpone the wedding luckily - as i was in ICU that day...

"We married in private before her surgery just the 2 of us (sic)."

Although the ceremony in New York City wasn't attended by friends and family due to the circumstances, the happy couple are planning a huge celebration with their loved ones as soon as possible.

Rosie added: "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, including all of u stranger-friends connected thru invisible strands of wi fi."
