Bret Michaels Proposes to longtime love on TV!

After months of speculation the rock and roll turned reality star Bret Michaels proposed to his longtime girlfriend Kristi Gibson.

And you won’t have to miss the proposal either! During Monday night’s season finale of Michael’s VH1 reality show, ‘Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It,’ The Poison front man dropped to one knee, and asked Gibson to be his wife.

He gushed,”I love you, and you’ve been unbelievably a big part of my life, and we have two beautiful girls together,” he said. “I know we love and respect each other, and I hope that we can find that inner love that we have forever.”

He continued, “I want you to be my wife,” as he proposed. “Just say yes or the rejection will kill me right now.”

She replied, “Of course, I will!” Later on, she explained to the camera, “I’m speechless. I truly never thought this day would come.”

They told the kids and celebrated with a family hug. Awwwwwwwww! The couple didn’t exactly make a rash decision. They have been dating on and off for 16 years and have two children together Raine, 10, and Jorja, 5.

Back in July, reports surfaced that Michaels proposed to his longtime love after the Fourth of July weekend while the couple were on site at his ranch in Arizona. At the time, Michaels denied reports that he was engaged.

A source dished, “Bret felt like now was the time because Kristi has been through so much with Bret and has been by his side every step of the way.” The source continued to explain that the couple’s relationship has evolved and Michaels himself has changed since his brain hemorrhage earlier this year.

A short while ago Michaels was accused of breaking up the marriage of Tish and Billy Ray Cyrus. He denied such allegations of coming between the pair. He explained, “I’ve been friends with her family forever,” he explained. He continued, “Her mom, Tish, likes ‘Every Rose Has Its Thorn,’  the first concert Miley ever saw was Poison, and so they wanted to remake it for the new record. … When I was in the studio, Miley came in and sang on my song… and that was it.”

The engagement ends quite a year for Michaels. He endured a terrifying life-threatening brain hemorrhage, a subsequent stroke, he won ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ came out with a new album and posed nude for the cover of Billboard Magazine!

We wish Bret Michaels and Kristi Gibson the best of luck with their engagement, nuptials and a very happy marriage.

Wonder if we will get to see the wedding on air! Hmm, at least the planning!!
