The Talk co-host Sara Gilbert, best known for her role on Roseanne, is engaged to singer/songwriter Linda Perry.
Gilbert told the audience at her talk show that Perry proposed in the park while a musician was playing nearby. ”I’m sitting there listening and I’m kind of daydreaming and I’m thinking like, ‘If I ever proposed to her this would be an amazing way to do it,’ ” Gilbert said. “The people picnicking next to us pull out string instruments from under the blanket, walk over and they start playing ‘Love Song.’ ”

The former actress explained that ‘Love Song’ is she and Perry’s “song.”
“She goes to her backpack and she pulls out these T-shirts and the first T-Shirt says ‘will’ and then puts on another T-shirt and it says, ‘you,’ then ‘marry,’ ‘me.’ And the last one’s a question mark,” Gilbert retold. “It’s the most amazing proposal ever.”
And before they left the park, Perry surprised Gilbert once more when musician John Waite showed up and sang ‘Missing You.’
“I happened to be talking about gay marriage and I thank you all for your support on that issue. … That was before I had any idea about any of this. I’m super shy and don’t usually want to tell anything,” she said. “But I wanted you guys to know because I feel like you’re a part of our family here.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
