NEW YORK (AP) - Rosie O'Donnell's girlfriend has given birth to a baby girl.

Kelli Carpenter, the comedian and former talk show host's longtime partner, gave birth to Vivienne Rose O'Donnell Friday at an undisclosed New York hospital, O'Donnell spokeswoman Cindi Berger said Saturday.

"Mothers and baby are just great," Berger said.

The baby weighed 6 pounds, 6 ounces and is 19 inches long, Berger said.

Carpenter and O'Donnell named the baby Vivienne after the main character in the book "Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood," and Rose after O'Donnell's mother, Roseanne, Berger said.

O'Donnell has adopted three children - Parker, 7, Chelsea, 5, and Blake, 3. This is 35-year-old Carpenter's first child. Berger would not say whether O'Donnell was formally adopting Vivienne Rose.

O'Donnell ended her syndicated talk show in May, and four months later left Rosie magazine, saying the publishers had stripped her of editorial control. Publishers Gruner + Jahr and O'Donnell are suing each other over the magazine's demise.
