With 10 kids between them, Rosie O’Donnell jokingly calls the family she shares with her new partner Tracy Kachtick-Anders the “Gay-dy Bunch.”
“Tracy has six kids, she lives next door,” Rosie, 48, tells US. “[Tracy’s] oldest is out of the house. So it’s nine total. It’s a lot! We’re the Gay-dy Bunch!”
Rosie, who has four children – Parker, 15, Chelsea, 13, Blake, 10, and Vivienne, 7 – with ex Kelli Carpenter, says that Tracy’s devotion to her family is what makes her so special.
“Part of the reason I fell in love with her was her love of kids,” Rosie reveals. “She was a foster mom and took in 12, 13 kids, and adopted a whole bunch as well. She’s pretty amazing.”
So what’s life like with such a large blended family? “Really good… It’s a challenge, but when you fall in love with someone, they come with a whole bunch of things, including children.”
