Rosie O'Donnell has posted baby photos onto her Twitter account to give her fans a brief insight into life with her new baby daughter, Dakota.

O'Donnell has proudly shown of the newborn, posting photos onto the social networking site this week.

Dakota was born on Jan. 5, 2013 weighing 5 lbs, 5 oz. at birth and will join O'Donnell's other children - Parker, 17, Chelsea, 15, Blake 13, and Vivienne, 10.

O'Donnell started her comedy career while still a teenager and her big break was on the talent show Star Search in 1984.

During her years on The Rosie O'Donnell Show, she wrote her first book, a memoir called Find Me and developed the nickname "Queen Of Nice" as well as a reputation for philanthropic efforts. She used the book's $3 million advance to establish her own For All Kids foundation and promoted other charity projects encouraging other celebrities on her show to also take part.

In 2006, O'Donnell became a moderator on The View, and she even went on to have a live on the air heated debate regarding the Bush administration's Iraq policies. That controversy sparked a large backlash and her contract on the show was canceled by mutual agreement.

In 2007, she released her second memoir, Celebrity Detox, which focuses on her struggles with fame and her time at The View. From 2009 to 2011, O'Donnell hosted Rosie Radio on Sirius XM Radio, and in 2011 she signed on with the OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network to return to daytime TV with The Rosie Show.

However, the OWN Network canceled the show due to low ratings on March 16, 2012, and the last show aired on March 29, 2012.
