Congratulations are in order for musician Linda Perry and The Talk co-host Sara Gilbert as they announced today they are engaged. Sara did the honor of making it public during a segment on her CBS show today, detailing Linda’s romantic and musical proposal.
We go to a park, and we have food and we’re eating it, it’s really sweet and there’s this guy sitting playing guitar, like a street musician, and he starts playing this song that we love. I’m like, “Oh, that’s so weird, this is so magical and amazing. So that ends and she’s like, “Oh, I’m gonna ask him to play this other song,” but this other song is really obscure and this guy wouldn’t know it, but magically he knows it.
… And suddenly the people picnicking next to us pull out string instruments from under the blanket and walk over and they start playing “Love Song.” Then she goes to her backpack and she pulls out some T-shirts and the first T-shirt says, “Will,” and then she puts on another T-Shirt that says, “You,” “Marry, “Me” and the last one is a question mark. And then she goes to her backpack and gets a ring. So then she says, “OK, turn around,” and I turn around and our moms are there and a couple friends.
… So I think that’s it and it’s the most amazing proposal ever and then this guy walks up and she’s like, “This is John Waite” and he starts playing “Missing You.”
This will be the first marriage for both Linda and Sara, who began dating in fall of 2011. Sara has two children with former partner Ali Adler.
No word yet on when they plan on getting married, but we’re thrilled for the happy couple and can’t wait to see how the big day turns out.
