Actress and “The Talk” co-host Sara Gilbert is engaged to songwriter Linda Perry.
Gilbert announced Monday that Perry had recently popped the question in an L.A. park with an elaborate 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,” Gilbert recalled of The Cure’s ‘Love Song.’ “I’m like, ‘Oh, that’s so weird, this is so magical and amazing.'”
Perry then changed into a series of t-shirts, each forming the question “Will You Marry Me?”
After Gilbert accepted what she called “the most amazing proposal ever,” Perry still had one more surprise.
Singer John Waite appeared to perform his hit song “Missing You” as their families arrived to celebrate.
“We had our proposal with our breakup song, which is great,” Gilbert cracked.
Gilbert and Perry first began dating in 2011. They have not announced a wedding date.
