Sara Gilbert Weds Linda Perry In Same Sex Ceremony
According to US Weekly reports:
Sara Gilbert and songwriter Linda Perry got married Sunday, March 30, Gilbert’s rep confirms to Us Weekly.
The Talk cohost, who is currently on her honeymoon, will be off for the next week, a CBS rep tells Us. Details from inside the wedding, however, will be revealed Monday by her colleagues — who attended the ceremony, the network’s rep adds.
Actress Juliette Lewis shared her excitement ahead of the nuptials and tweeted Sunday, “Holiday by Madonna playin, sun is beaming,gettin ready 4 the wedding of 1of my fave couples in the universe @RealLindaPerry @THEsaragilbert.” Neither newlywed has made any mention, yet, of their marital status.
The ceremony took place nearly one year after Gilbert revealed her engagement news to her fellow cohosts on The Talk last April. “It’s like the most amazing proposal ever,” the former Roseanne star, 39, gushed about Perry’s romantic musical picnic. “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 [The Cure’s] Lovesong,” she explained of her fiancee’s elaborate engagement plan. (Formerly the lead singer of ’90s band 4 non blondes Perry has written hits for artists like Christina Aguilera, Pink, and Gwen Stefani.)
Gilbert and Perry, 48, first stated dating back in 2011. The former child actress first came out as lesbian back in 2010, when she revealed and she had been in a longterm relationship with TV producer Alison Adler since 2001. The longtime loves, who split in August 2011, share two kids — son Levi, 9, and daughter Sawyer, 6.
“I happened to be talking about gay marriage and I thank you all for your support on that issue,” she told her cohosts last spring. “That was before I had any idea about any of this. I’m super shy and don’t usually want to tell anything… but I wanted you guys to know because I feel like you’re a part of our family here.”
The Talk airs at 2 p.m. ET on CBS.
Box bumpin’ boos 4 life!!! Congrats to the happy couple.
