Now that estrogen injections have mellowed her out and she's not as angry as she used to be, as she recently told O, it looks like Rosie O'Donnell has found love again.

The former Queen of Nice stepped out with her new girlfriend, Michelle Rounds, on Monday night at O'Donnell's annual Rosie Theater Kids Gala in New York City.

So how'd these two peas in a pod meet?

A source close to the pair tells People a nice cup of java had a little something to do with it.

"They met at a Starbucks a few months ago," said the insider. "They are adorable together and are very, very happy."

O'Donnell, 49, was previously married to former Nickelodeon executive Kelli Carpenter from 2004 to 2007, with whom she shares four children.

Following that breakup in October, 2009, O'Donnell met artist Tracy Kachtick-Anders, but the relationship was short-lived and the two split last spring.

Rounds is reportedly a corporate headhunter for an IT company based in Manhattan.

No word how long they've been dating, but here's hoping the new couple makes it last!

O'Donnell, who's been out of the media glare for the most part since leaving The View in 2007, returns to TV with a new gabfest, The Rosie Show, slated to premiere on OWN on Oct. 10.
