How is Rosie O'Donnell's new romance going?
On her Sirius XM radio show "Rosie Radio" Monday, she described Tracy Kachtick-Anders -- an artist and mother of six -- as a "lovely, lovely, lovely, lovely person."
She also called their relationship "delicious. I love it all ... It's almost too good to be true!"
Still, she said she was surprised at all the attention they've received since they stepped out holding hands in Miami Dec. 29. "I had no idea that it would be on CNN," O'Donnell, 47, said of her new relationship. She then mocked a television announcer: "'Rosie has a new girlfriend – tonight at 6.'"
Added O'Donnell, "It's odd for me ... and quite odd for Tracy."
She is relieved people know, though. "Now I don't have to worry about not saying it for two hours a day," she said, explaining how she can now talk openly about her new romance on her show.
It appears O'Donnell's children (she has four with ex-partner Kelli Carpenter) have already met Tracy's kids.
" kids at your house your 4 gf's 6 + Ellis?" a Rosie.com reader asked Sunday on her web site Rosie.com.
"yes," Rosie noted.
In October, O'Donnell announced that she and Carpenter had called it quits.
"We have different styles of living," she later explained to Howard Stern. "I'm very messy. She's very not."
