Bret Michaels: Engaged to Kristi Gibson!

by at . Comments

After 16 years together, or at least sort of together (when he wasn't on Rock of Love or putting it to Tish Cyrus), Bret Michals and Kristi Gibson are engaged!

Bret proposed to Kristi - where else - on the finale of Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It on VH1. Gibson is the mother of his daughters Raine, 10, and Jorja, 5.

Down on one knee, the Poison frontman said, "Please say yes or the rejection will kill me right now." Fortunately for all of us, Gibson responded positively!

Bret Michaels and Kristi Gibson are engaged! Congratulations!

Gibson and their daughters stayed by Bret Michaels' side earlier this year when he suffered a terrifying brain hemorrhage and then a subsequent stroke.

"She's the one who put up with me all these years," Bret, who hinted this summer that he might finally put a ring on it, told Us Magazine of Kristi.

Immediately after Gibson accepted his proposal, he broke the happy news to the girls: "[I told them] 'I did it! We'll all be together forever! Family hug!'"
