"We are thrilled to announce the arrival of our daughter Dakota," O'Donnell shared on Instagram Jan. 9, along with a snapshot of herself, Rounds, and their little bundle of joy. "With love and thanks -- AMEN." 

Dakota is O'Donnell's fifth child; the former talk show host also shares kids Parker, Chelsea, Blake, and Vivienne with ex-wife Kelli Carpenter.

O'Donnell and Rounds announced their engagement in December 2011. They married six months later in a secret, no-frills ceremony on June 9, 2012, shortly after Rounds was diagnosed with desmoid tumors, an extremely rare, cancer-like disease. O'Donnell herself suffered a health crisis in August, when she had a heart attack and had to be treated in the intensive care unit, but both women are on the mend now and hope to have a bigger wedding later this year.
