A source told the publication that the Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover singer is planning on 'having the kid together' with Rosie. 

The former The View co-host has been attending Sophie's shows and concerts in New York over the past couple of months. 

In April alone she attended at least two public events with the singer and songwriter in addition to being spotted with Sophie, where they were 'all over each other, at a Broadway play in March, according to Radar Online

And according to the gossip website, Rosie and Sophie left an April 30 performance in NYC in the same SUV, continuing to fan the flames for the rumoured romance.

O'Donnell is locked in a bitter custody battle with her ex Michelle Rounds over their two-year-old daughter Dakota.

On Tuesday, comedienne Rosie arrived a courthouse in New York City ready to face the music.

The comic - who split up with Rounds in February - looked weary as she entered the building with her lawyer.

People.com reports Rounds missed the first court hearing of the divorce case, and O'Donnell's rep told them that her ex is seeking sole custody in an 'absurd and desperate attempt to use a child for her own gain'.

On Saturday TMZ claimed that Rounds wants the comedienne to submit to random drug testing until their custody war is resolved.

The site claims that Rounds believes O'Donnell is an unfit parent to their daughter daughter Dakota because of her 'excessive use of booze and weed'.

Sophie, meanwhile, has a six-year-old son Dashiell and is expecting a baby girl after being implanted with her own frozen embryo.
