CELEBRITY CIVIL PARTNERSHIPS

They exchanged vows in June earlier this year, but had - as with much of their relationship - kept it under wrap (they didn't announce their engagement for months last year). O'Donnell took to her blog to share the happy news over the weekend: "We married in private, just the two of us".

This year has been quite a trying time for the couple; Michelle was diagnosed with a rare and often fatal disease of desmoids tumours in June, and Rosie suffered a heart attack earlier this month which had her in intensive care for a few days.

The pair had been planning an August wedding party to share the happy occasion with their friends and family but postponed it when Michelle was diagnosed.

"When we are both well enough, [we] will have the wedding of our dreams surrounded by those we cherish thankful for the love and support so many have given us during these trying times," said O'Donnell.

So it may not quite be a time to celebrate and cheer for them, we do wish them both speedy recoveries and much joy!
