Sara Gilbert of “The Talk” Announces Engagement to Linda Perry
Sara Gilbert, co-host of The Talk, announced Monday that she is engaged to girlfriend Linda Perry.
Gilbert, 38, and Perry, 47, announced their relationship last fall.
According to Gilbert, Perry proposed to her last week at a picnic when they were eating and listening to musicians playing in the park.
“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.’ ” (people.com)
Perry proceeded to pop the question by taking out a series of t-shirts with the words “Will”, then “You” then “Marry” and “Me”, with
the last t-shirt bearing a question mark.
Gilbert, who receives a lot of support from the viewers of The Talk, opted to share her news on the show.
Perry is the former lead singer of 4 Non-Blondes and has produced several hit songs for such artists as Pink, Gwen Stefani, and Christina Aguilera.
