Sara Gilbert is pregnant!
On Tuesday, September 9, Gilbert, who co-hosts the CBS show The Talk, revealed that she and her wife Linda Perry are expecting their first child together.
The news came out during the show’s segment of “Face your Fears,” where each host is dared to conquer one of their biggest fears. Because Gilbert’s fear is getting injured, she was dared to lay on top of a bed of nails and smash a cinder block across her stomach.
Gilbert obviously couldn’t take part in the dare, and revealed to the crowd why.
“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.

Gilbert’s co-hosts Sharon Osbourne, Aisha Tyler, Julie Chen and Sheryl Underwood were all shocked at the news and could barely contain their excitement.
While this is the first child for the couple, Gilbert already has two children, Levi, 9, and daughter Sawyer, 7, from her former relationship with TV producer Allison Adler.

Gilbert and Perry got engaged in April 2013 after Perry proposed during a picnic in a Los Angeles park. “It’s like the most amazing proposal ever,” Gilbert said at the time.
Thank you everyone for your awesome messages of support. @THEsaragilbert and I are beyond happy. 🙂

“I’m sitting there listening and I’m kind of daydreaming and I’m thinking like, ‘If I ever proposed to her this would be an amazing way to do it.’ The people picnicking next to us pull out string instruments from under the blanket, walk over and they start playing,” she recalled.
The couple tied the knot earlier this year in March.
