It's not every day we hear the specific details of how celebrities get engaged, but when former 4 Non Blondes singer Linda Perry popped the question to girlfriend Sara Gilbert -- who you may remember as Roseanne's daughter on Barr's hit sitcom -- the story was too good EPIC for Sara not to share on the show she now co-hosts, The Talk. In fact, it was too epic for it to not make headlines.
The two were apparently on a picnic when a street musician started playing a song the couple loves. Perry casually asked him to play another favorite, which is "really obscure and this guy wouldn't know it, but magically he knows it," Sara recalled. Then, nearby picnickers started playing another love song, on string instruments that had been hidden. At this point, Sara had to know something was up, right?
It was at that point that Perry started layering on T-shirts that read "will," "you," "marry," "me," and "?" and then grabbed the ring. Awwww! But wait, wait, THEN! Then! Family and friends showed up, along with John Waite, who started playing "Missing You." Whoa, huh? It's no wonder Sara called it "the most amazing proposal ever."
As amazing as I'm sure it was in the moment, being caught off-guard like that may have made it hard for Sara to actually be in that moment. The best part of an EPIC proposal like this, I would guess, is just being able to have that as a story to tell for years to come.
That's not to say that you have to have fireworks or orchestras or celebrities popping out of bushes to have an incredible proposal story. Every proposal -- even the most low-key -- is special in its own right. But it sounds like the proposal Sara got is one that really spoke to her relationship with Linda and stole her heart on so many levels. And that's all anyone really needs to be able to call your proposal the most amazing ever.
Here's the super-adorable clip where Sara talks about the proposal ...
How sweet is this? How do you feel about your proposal story?
