Sara Gilbert married her longtime girlfriend Linda Perry on Sunday, almost one year ago after the singer-songwriter popped the question in an L.A. park.

Gilbert opened up about the news on her hit CBS talk show, saying:

"I happened to be talking about gay marriage and I thank you all for your support on that issue. That was before I had any idea about any of this."

"I'm super shy and don't usually want to tell anything ... But I wanted you guys to know because I feel like you're a part of our family here."

According to Gilbert, Perry planned a romantic proposal with a backup guitar player and brass band that she put together specifically for the big event.

"We go to a park ... it's really sweet and there's this guy sitting playing guitar, like a street musician, and he starts playing a song that we love," she recalled.

"I'm like, 'Oh, that's so weird, this is so magical and amazing.'"

"So that ends, and she's like, 'Oh, I'm gonna ask him to play this other song,' but this other song is really obscure and this guy wouldn't know it, but magically he knows it."

The next thing that The Talk star knew, she said, fellow picnickers pulled out instruments and joined the guitarist to serenade the couple with "Love Song."

At which point, Perry put on a series of T-shirts that each had one word, finally forming the question "Will You Marry Me?" Which is the best proposal ever.

Congratulations to the couple on their marriage!
