The talk show host revealed the surprising news on her blog Rosie.com today (27.08.12), explaining the couple brought their nuptials forward after Michelle was diagnosed with desmoid tumors, a rare and often fatal disease, which only affects three in every one million people.

Rosie wrote: "my wife michelle was diagnosed with desmoid tumors in june a mysterious rare - too often fatal disease that affects 3 in a million people

"we were to wed 10 days ago but her illness forced us to postpone the wedding luckily - as i was in ICU that day...

"we married in private before her surgery just the 2 of us (sic)."

Although the ceremony in New York City wasn't attended by friends and family due to the circumstances, the happy couple are planning a huge celebration with their loved ones as soon as possible.

Rosie added: "when we r both well enough will have the wedding of r dreams surrounded by those we cherish thankful for the love and support so many have given us during these trying times, including all of u stranger-friends connected thru invisible strands of wi fi."

Rosie recently had her own health scare, when she suffered a heart attack at her home but credited her survival to quick Internet research on her painful symptoms and a Bayer aspirin she had seen recommended in TV commercials.
