Sara Gilbert of The Talk is pregnant. She and wife Linda Perry are expecting their first baby together. This will be the third child for Gilbert, who has two from her previous relationship with Alison Adler. Sara Gilbert and Linda Perry tied the knot this past March.

According to a report from the New York Daily News, it was during a segment on The View that Sara Gilbert shared her exciting news with her colleagues. Refusing to participate in a rather frightening dare--having a bed of nails placed on her stomach--Gilbert spilled the beans.

"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.

Sharon Osbourne, Aisha Tyler, Julie Chen and Sheryl Underwood were all stunned by the news. They could barely contain their excitement as they surrounded the mom-to-be with hugs and words of congratulations.

Cohost Julie Chen tweeted the good news.

Following the show, Sara Gilbert tweeted her thanks for the warm wishes.

Sister Melissa Gilbert tweeted about having kept Sara's secret, but not needing to keep it any longer.

In addition to her role on The Talk, Sara Gilbert played Roseanne Barr's on-screen daughter, Darlene Conner, on Roseanne from 1988 to 1997. She is also known for her recurring role as Leslie Winkle on The Big Bang Theory. Linda Perry is a songwriter and former front woman for the band 4 Non Blondes.

Congratulations to both Sara Gilbert and Linda Perry on their now-highly-anticipated baby-to-be. It will be fun keeping up with the The Talk host throughout the coming months of her pregnancy.
