Sara Gilbert of The Talk and her wife Linda Perry are the proud parents of a new baby boy. The couple welcomed Rhodes Emilio Gilbert Perry into the world on Saturday.
“Our very own Sara and her wife Linda are the proud parents of a new baby boy and both mother and child are doing well,” The Talk co-host Julie Chen said Monday on the show.
Sara Gilbert and Linda Perry started dating back in 2011 and tied the knot in 2014. Perry is a music producer and the former lead singer of 4 Non Blondes. She has been instrumental in producing hit songs for Gwen Stefani, Christina Aguilera, and Adam Lambert.
Gilbert was best known for her role in the TV sitcom Roseanne, until she became one of the co-hosts of The Talk.
This is the third child for Sara Gilbert, who has a son named Levi, who is 10, and a daughter named Sawyer, who is seven, from a previous relationship.

Sara Gilbert announced on The Talk that she was pregnant, following a request for her to participate in a segment during which she was to ‘face her fears.’ Expected to lie down on a bed of nails, Gilbert had to spill the beans and announce her pregnancy–maybe a bit sooner than she planned to do so.
“I really do believe in facing your fears and doing things that make you uncomfortable, but I actually can’t do the dare because I’m pregnant,” Gilbert said.
How exciting for Sara Gilbert and Linda Perry that they now have their own son to raise. Sara’s kids must be excited to have a new baby brother, too.
