Reunited and it feels so good! Rosie O’Donnell is appreciating everything she has these days. She took to Instagram on Thursday to post a sweet selfie with her formerly estranged daughter, Chelsea.
“Chelsea and me – what a difference a year makes #hopelives,” O’Donnell captioned the sweet photo.
The pair were previously reunited back in June at the 2nd Annual Fran Drescher Cancer Schmancer Sunset Cabaret Cruise in New York City, where they posed together for a few photos.
Last August, O’Donnell and her adopted daughter had a very public falling out when Chelsea said she wanted to live with her birth mother. At the time, O’Donnell said her daughter was suffering from mental illness, a claim which Chelsea refuted.
"I have a daughter who's in a crisis," Rosie told ET last November. "Any mother or father who's ever had a child in crisis, they know it's upsetting until your child is once again safely on the shore and not in [the] rapids. Sadly, right now, Chelsea seems to be in the rapids and her family loves her and misses her."
Chelsea also released a statement at the time, saying, “"A part of my heart will always care for Rosie, but many things she has done to me over the past few months are unforgivable at the present. Some things just take time, if ever.”
