The actress is engaged to her girlfriend, Elizabeth Rooney, O'Donnell's rep confirms to ET.

However, their big day will NOT happen any time soon.

The wedding is still a "long time in the future", the couple decided, according to O'Donnell.

Elizabeth Rooney and Rosie O'Donnell attend Family Equality Council's "Night At The Pier" at Pier 60 on May 7, 2018 in New York City. They've had a long-distance relationship because O'Donnell lives in NY.

The pair emerged publicly almost a year ago, and have been doing "a long-distance thing" amid the distance between NY and Boston. She's like, "I was in the Army!"

She praised her fiancee as "a pretty unbelievable young woman" and "very much an equal" to her, with a background including military service and a boxing career.

Rosie admitted the difference in years gets to her "sometimes", especially since fans have confused Elizabeth for her 21-year-old daughter, Chelsea. "It's been a long-distance thing", Rosie told the outlet at the 15th anniversary for Rosie's Theater Kids, her arts education organization. "But she doesn't seem to care", O'Donnell said. "She's like, 'I was in the Army! You think I don't know who I want to date?' I'm like, 'Alright, I guess that's true.' She has a lot of good points".

Rosie O'Donnell is getting married.

'A lot of people say, "Oh my god, Chelsea looks so great,"' she said. It's a little tricky.
