It’s been more than two years since Chelsea secretly married husband Nick Alliegro in July 2016. 

The couple later suffered a miscarriage in 2017, which led to their breakup.   

In April of this year, Chelsea and Nick filed for divorce.

Rosie and O’Donnell were estranged for years. 

And prior to her miscarriage in 2017, the comedian’s daughter told DailyMail.com that Rosie would not be in her child’s life. 

The mother-daughter duo have since mended fences.

‘We went through some really public troubled times,’ O’Donnell revealed while serving as a guest host on The Talk in September. ‘She’s doing better now and we’re both communicating with each other.’ 

Rosie added: ‘When somebody does something unforgivable to you and you can forgive them and they can forgive you, there’s a kind of grace that descends upon the both of you, within that.’ 

Chelsea was adopted by O’Donnell and ex-wife Kelli Carpenter along with her two brothers Parker, 23, and Blake, 19. The exes also share daughter Vivienne, 16, who was born to Carpenter in 2002 through artificial insemination. 

Rosie also adopted daughter Dakota, now age five, with her second wife Michelle Rounds in 2013. The couple divorced in 2015—just two years before Rounds would die of an apparent suicide.
