The Talk co-host Sara Gilbert is engaged to singer-songwriter Linda Perry.

Gilbert shared the details of the surprise proposal Monday on the CBS daytime talk show. Perry went to elaborate lengths in setting up the big moment, which involved a picnic in the park, members of both of their families, singer John Waite (who played his song "Missing You," which also was their "breakup song") and a series of T-shirts adorned with the words "Will you marry me?"
