Sara Gilbert is expecting her first child with new wife Linda Perry.
The former Roseanne star, who wed singer/songwriter Perry in March, revealed the news on Tuesday’s episode of her show The Talk, after refusing to take part in a dare to lie on a bed of nails.
Fighting back tears, she explained, “I’m actually not gonna do the dare… I was scared to do it and 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.”
The surprise news prompted her co-presenters Sharon Osbourne, actress Aisha Tyler, comedienne Sheryl Underwood and newswoman Julie Chen to shriek with joy, as Gilbert added, “I feel good, I feel really good.”
Gilbert is already a mum to son Levi and daughter Sawyer from her previous relationship with TV producer Allison Adler.
The new baby will be the second Gilbert has carried – she gave birth to Sawyer in 2007, while Adler carried Levi in 2004.
