Rosie O’Donnell Cried When Daughter Dakota Asked to Speak to Her Birth Mother?

Rosie O’Donnell was talking about when her daughter Dakota asked to talk to her birth mother, who Dakota called “the lady whose tummy I was in.”

In an emotional essay, the TV personality who is 60 years old talks about the moving moment. O’Donnell writes on her experience as a parent since her 9-year-old daughter Dakota was diagnosed with autism in 2016.

Dakota asked to talk to her birth mother when she was 5 years old, says O’Donnell says her daughter is “endlessly curious.”

“We’re in contact, so Dakota gets on FaceTime and says, ‘Are you the lady whose tummy I was in? I just wanted you to know I’m the kid that was in there, and when I got born, my mommy held me and I squeezed her pinkie, and I am with her. So I just want to let you know that’s what happened to me. Bye,'” the actress recounted.

“I was in tears as was her birth mom,” Rosie O’Donnell writes. “That’s a pretty intense, complex, emotional thing for a little girl to put together.”

“I think about the birth mothers every day,” says O’Donnell, who is also the mother of Parker, 27, Chelsea, 25, Blake, 22 and Vivienne, 19.

“I think about the generosity of human spirit that allows someone who knows they’re not able at the moment to be a mom to this baby, give that baby all [they] deserve,” she shares. “To place that child in the loving arms of a stranger.”

“It’s the biggest act of generosity I think that humans can do. And I’ve been the benefactor of their selflessness and it made my life worth everything,” says O’Donnell. “Nothing in my life ever compares to the five kids and nothing, no reward you ever win, no amount of money you ever get, can replace the love of family, and of a parent and a child.”

“She’s a gift from another dimension. The things she knows — about sea anemones and tide pools. I got to 60 not knowing about the Mariana Trench,” she continues. “Now I know all about it! Her ability to absorb information is unparalleled. I can imagine her winning on Jeopardy! someday.”

O’Donnell says, “She teaches me.” “To be able to see the world as she does — for me, it’s been a wonderfully magical experience. I’m so glad we have each other.”
