Once one of the most famous names in television, Rosie O’Donnell has been given a new role.
On December 19th, 2018, Rosie O’Donnell’s formerly estranged daughter, Chelsea, gave birth to her first child. Just minutes after her daughter was born, Rosie shared the news with her huge social media following.
When Rosie’s true fans and followers say that she was at the hospital with her daughter, they were shocked. Sadly, Rosie and Chelsea have been estranged for the last several years.
In fact, in September 2018, Chelsea announced her pregnancy exclusively to The Daily Mail. She was so excited to announce that her first child would be arriving soon when she shared, “It’s very exciting and I’m looking forward to it. I really don’t care if I have a boy or a girl, I’m just hoping for a healthy baby. But as far as I am concerned, so long as it’s healthy, that’s what matters.”
However, when she was asked about her famous mother, Rosie, her answer was very clear. The Daily Mail asked Chelsea if her mother, Rosie O’Donnell, would be in her daughter’s life, to which Chelsea responded with, “Rosie will not be in my child’s life,” she said, adding, “and no, I do not feel sad about that to be honest.”
In 2015, Rosie and Chelsea have a publicized falling out after Chelsea ran away from Rosie’s home. Their relationship suffered from public opinion and for the next two and half years, they were not close. After Chelsea admitted that her own mother would not be in her daughter’s life, Rosie went on record to say that she believes she and her daughter would become closer after the baby arrived.
On December 19th, it was publicly confirmed that Rosie was present for the birth of her first grandchild. Not only was she present, Chelsea and her boyfriend, the baby’s father, Jacob Bourassa, named their daughter Skylar Rose. Of course, fans are speculating that the middle name, “Rose,” is in honor of her grandmother, Rosie.
Babies are such a gift to any and every family! Please help us to congratulate Rosie, Chelsea, and Jacob on the arrival of sweet little Skylar Rose!
