Sara Gilbert and Linda Perry got married last spring in a beautiful California ceremony full of friends and family. Now they’re taking their marriage to the next level, because Sara is pregnant with the couple’s first child! Sara announced the news on The Talk this week – US Weekly has the scoop on how it went down (because seriously, who watches that show?):
Gilbert told her fellow costars that she would not be facing her fear of a cinderblock being broken on her stomach during their “Face Your Fears” week. “Before we go I just want to say I’m actually not going to do the dare,” she said. “I was scared to do it and I really believe in facing your fears,” she continued, “but I actually can’t do the dare because I’m pregnant.”
The other ladies on the panel, including Sharon Osbourne, Julie Chen, Aisha Tyler and Sheryl Underwood, apparently all started “freaking out” and acting like this was the first they’d heard of the situation. Maybe it was, who knows?
In any case, congrats to these ladies – babies are adorable (especially when you can give them back, which obviously doesn’t apply here). I’m sure they’ll be great parents! This isn’t the first time Sara will be a parent, anyway – she’s got two kids with her former partner Alison Adler: 9-year-old Levi and 7-year-old Sawyer (though I believe Alison carried both of them).
Sara Gilbert and Linda Perry tied the knot in Malibu over the weekend, and while we’ve already learned that it was a beautiful and touching ceremony, apparently the reception was hardcore and more like a rock concert than a formal event. Tell us all about it, TMZ:
According to our sources, Sharon Osbourne, Julie Chen, Aisha Tyler, Steven Tyler, Juliette Lewis and Tobey Maguire were all in attendance.
But the stars of the show were the people who took the stage, backed by 80s cover group Flashback Heart Attack:
– Tobey Maguire’s little daughter Ruby sang “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”
– Annabella Lwin from Bow Wow Wow sang “I Want Candy”
– Martha Davis from The Motels sang “Only The Lonely”
– Missing Persons’ Dale Bozzio sang “Destination Unknown” and “Walking in LA”
– Terri Nunn from Berlin sang “The Metro” and “Take My Breath Away” (!!!)
– Linda joined Terri on stage to sing “Sex (I’m A…)”
– Terri finished with “Highway to Hell”
Our sources say Linda MC’ed the whole show and the stage was mocked up to look like the classic rock club CBGBs.
Um, that’s insane, vaguely hilarious and AWESOME. Who knew they even knew Tobey Maguire, of all people? How random is that?
Still pretty thrilled for these two. Get it, ladies!
It was about a year ago when Sara Gilbert announced her engagement to Linda Perry, and things still must be going pretty well, because they’ve actually tied the knot!
We don’t know too many details besides what Aisha Tyler and Julie Chen revealed on The Talk on Monday, after Sara and Linda had set off for their honeymoon:
“It was an amazing, amazing night,” Aisha Tyler told the audience. “[It was] beautiful and it was at sunset and just overlooking the ocean. I mean we can’t tell much about it because we want Sara to talk about it.”
Echoed fellow host Julie Chen: “It was magical. It was the most beautiful ceremony … When she returns on Monday, we’re going to show you pictures from the wedding and talk about it.”
Sounds lovely! I love me a gay wedding, so I’m all for this. Congrats to the happy couple!
To me, Sara Gilbert will always be Darlene from Roseanne and Linda Perry will always be the big lesbo who used to run around the studio smacking Christina Aguilera‘s ass back in the ‘Dirty’ era (anyone else remember this?), but nevertheless, the pair (not Christina, obvs) will become one in holy matrimony as they’re now engaged to be married.
They went public with their relationship in late 2011, and apparently the proposal included Linda playing The Cure’s ‘Love Song’ for Sara before asking for her hand in marriage. LOL, okay. Sara announced the news on The Talk, saying:
“I think that’s it and it’s like the most amazing proposal ever. We had our proposal with our breakup song, which is great.”
Kewl beanz, Sara. I don’t really have much to say to this one other than good for them – here’s hoping it’s a long-lasting and happy relationship. (I’m feeling somewhat sincere today, so sue me!)
Watch Sara discuss Linda’s proposal on The Talk below:
“She definitely doesn’t care — and that is a fact. You know how some people say ‘I don’t care’ and they really do? I can tell you that Christina really doesn’t care…. Like, she told me ‘I know this Bionic record is not going to be a big record because I’m gonna try and do some different things and I don’t know what’s gonna happen but this is what I wanna do…’ She knew that before she recorded one thing.”
Well, we already pretty much knew that Christina, much like the wild honey badger, doesn’t give a shit, but it’s interesting to hear that she predicted that Bionic was going to be a flop. Especially since, upon it’s release, many Lady Gaga fans couldn’t help but note how undifferent (that’s a word now) it was.
