Sara Gilbert and Linda Perry at an event at the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center in 2012.

Congratulations to actress and talk show host Sara Gilbert and rock singer and songwriter Linda Perry who wed on March 30, 2014 in Los Angeles in a sunset ceremony overlooking the ocean.

The wedding was reported in US magazine and then discussed by Gilbert's co-hosts on The Talk, all of whom attended the ceremony.

The couple announced their engagement in April, when Gilbert described Perry's elaborate and thoughtful proposal in a Los Angeles park. The women have been a couple since 2011.

Gilbert first came to national attention when she was cast in the role of younger daughter Darlene on the long-running television series Roseanne(1988-1997). Gilbert's Darlene was a devilishly sarcastic tomboy who became an immediate favorite with lesbian audiences.

She came out publicly in 2004, when she announced that she and her then-partner, television writer and producer Allison Adler, were in a committed relationship and that they were the parents of a baby boy, Levi Hank Gilbert-Adler. Adler gave birth to the child, who was conceived with the aid of an anonymous sperm donor. In 2007, Gilbert gave birth to the couple's second child. In 2011, Gilbert and Adler amicably separated.

Since 2010, Gilbert has served as an executive producer and co-host of The Talk. She also appears as a recurring character in the CBS comedy series, The Big Bang Theory.

Linda Perry achieved fame as lead singer and primary songwriter of the San Francisco-based band 4 Non Blondes in the 1990s, but has since become better known as songwriter and producer of hit songs by several other female singers, including Pink, Christina Aguilera, and Courtney Love, among others.

In the video below, Gilbert's co-hosts on The Talk announce her wedding and promise that she will share more details upon her return from her honeymoon.
