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 (11) 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 (05Apr11) 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.
