The couple, who have been together since last fall, have taken the next step towards marriage. How exciting!
The Talk co-host Sara Gilbert shared the amazing news on the April 8 episode, telling the audience that she and her love Linda Perry are moving towards tying the knot!
When Sara told her co-stars and the studio audience, she actually held the secret for, in her own words, “about a week.” But she also mentioned that the experience was “magical and amazing.” We are so happy for Sara and Linda — find out all the awesome details!
Linda Perry & Sara Perry’s Engagement: Who Popped the Q?
Sara continued to tell everyone that her singer girlfriend set up a romantic picnic for the proposal. “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.’ The people picnicking next to us pull out string instruments from under the blanket, walk over and they start playing ‘Love Song.'”
That song was made famous by the iconic rock band, The Cure. It’s now the couple’s song, even though their favorite song is something completely different.
When the big question was asked, it was done in a very unique way as Sara told the audience and her co-stars. She said, “[Linda] 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. It’s the most amazing proposal ever.”
The fun didn’t end there! Before they left the picnic, Linda surprised her new fiancée by introducing John Waite, who played their favorite song, “Missing You.”
How romantic! And how great for her fans, who she is proud of. She said, “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.”
