2013 has been the year of engagements for sisters Sara and Melissa Gilbert. First, Melissa announced her engagement to Timothy Busfield in January. Just a little over two months later, the Dancing with the Stars alum’s sister is betrothed to girlfriend of two years Linda Perry! How did Melissa respond to the exciting news?
Sara Gilbert recently announced her engagement to Linda Perry during an appearance on The Talk. And what an engagement story it is! According to Sara, Linda popped the question with the help of a street musician during a romantic picnic in Los Angeles. The musician approached the couple and began to play one of their favorite songs. Sara’s response? “I’m like, ‘Oh, that’s so weird, this is so magical and amazing.’”
That’s already a pretty cool way to pop the question, but there’s more. The other picnickers in the vicinity pulled out string instruments and began playing Love Song by The Cure, another favorite of the couple. Finally, Linda showed off a series of tee shirt, which, in succession, spelled out “Will you marry me?” Obviously, the answer was an enthusiastic yes!
While the rest of the Twitterverse spent last night raving about Sara and Linda’s engagement, Melissa kept her mention of the exciting news short and sweet: “Best proposal story ever! @THEsaragilbert and @RealLindaPerry.” But we’re sure to hear more from Melissa as the wedding draws near, for there’s few things the actress enjoys more than posting Instagram pictures all over her Twitter page! Chances are, she’ll have plenty of photo updates available when the big day arrives.
