GLAAD congratulates Sara Gilbert and Linda Perry on their engagement!

On the Monday, April 8 episode of The Talk, out co-host Sara Gilbert announced that she is now engaged to her girlfriend, songwriter and record producer Linda Perry. The couple has been together since late 2011, and Perry decided to pop the question last week at an L.A. park in front of family and friends. Gilbert describes it as "the most amazing proposal ever."
