Comedienne and actress Rosie O'Donnell has reunited with her ex-girlfriend Tracy Kachtick-Anders as her son recovers from heart surgery. O'Donnell began dating the Texan artist and mum-of-six in 2009 and set up home in Nyack, New York bringing together their families and giving them a combined brood of 10 kids.
Reports surfaced in February suggesting they had split, but it appears the couple is back together as O'Donnell helps take care of Kachtick-Anders' seven-year-old Wyatt. The child, who suffers from learning disability Down's Syndrome, went under the knife on Tuesday morning, April 5 and O'Donnell has taken to Twitter.com to thank fans for their well-wishes and praise local hospital staff for taking such good care of the boy.
In a series of tweets, she writes, "Wyatt is out of surgery - thanks 4 all the good wishes. he has down syndrome - he had open heart surgery this am to repair a sub aortic stenosis... the nurses and doctors r amazing... gonna b fine." And O'Donnell has confirmed her romance with Kachtick-Anders is back on, adding, "my girlfriends son - 7 - Wyatt is his name - he is love."
The comedienne has four children of her own with ex-wife Kelli Carpenter.
