Last month, the newly hired O'Donnell opened in The conversation about his current relationship with his eldest daughter after the news of pregnancy.
"I think that with my relationship with my daughter, Chelsea, she really has [gotten stronger] because we went through very difficult times in public, "said the mother of five, who adopted Chelsea as a baby with her then wife Kelli Carpenter-O'Donnell." She's better now and we're both communicating with each other. "
"When someone does something unforgivable to you and you can forgive them and you can forgive them, there is a kind of grace that descends on you two within that," Onell said to the hosts.

In May, Bourassa confirmed the pregnancy when she shared photos of her pregnant girlfriend and her baby's ultrasound on Facebook. On September 20, he revealed that the couple was expecting a daughter.
