Rosie O'Donnell talks about baby gifts for Taylor, Grace Hasselbeck
It appears as though their shared bond of motherhood may be what it takes to thaw the ice between Elisabeth Hasselbeck, 29, and her former co-host on The View, Rosie O’Donnell, 45.
Telling People that "peace prevails" between the two — who are now e-mailing each other — Rosie saw Elisabeth’s 9-week-old son Taylor Thomas on television earlier this week when Elisabeth returned to The View, and pronounced the baby "very, very cute." Rosie, herself mom to Parker, 12, Chelsea, 10, Blake, 8 and Vivienne, 5, decided to gift both Taylor and his older sister Grace, 2 ½, "because, as the mother of four, I know that when the newborn arrives, the most important thing is a sibling gift." Added Rosie,
Taylor isn’t the only one whose appearance provoked rave reviews from Rosie. Of Elisabeth, Rosie said,
Grace and Taylor are Elisabeth’s children with husband Tim Hasselbeck. Rosie’s four children are with longtime partner Kelli Carpenter O’Donnell.
