Sara Gilbert Reveals Her Pregnancy On-Air to the Shock of ‘The Talk’ Co-hosts: WATCH


It's 'Face Your Fears' week on The Talk – where each day a different co-host must complete a Fear Factor-esque challenge built around a major fear. On Tuesday's live episode, Sara Gilbert, who has a fear of getting hurt or injured, was tasked with laying down on a bed of nails while a cinder block placed on her stomach was destroyed with a sledgehammer. 

Before the challenge began, Gilbert announced that while she was a believer in facing your fears and doing things that make you uncomfortable, she would not be doing the task – revealing that she was in fact pregnant. 

Her co-hosts, as you can imagine, were brought to tears by the genuine surprise.

This is Gilbert's first child with her wife Linda Perry. The couple were married back in March.

    I have always liked Sara Gilbert and I think she and Linda will make great parents. I have never watched The Talk but it actually looks more interesting (and more genuine) than The View.

    Congratulations to Sara Gilbert.

    but please don’t insult our intelligence by pretending that this is not completely scripted, and that her co-hosts ‘surprise’ was not rehearsed.

    FYI: Sara Gilbert is the producer and creator of “The Talk”. She had an earlier 10-year relationship with Ali Adler and they had two children, a son (carried by Adler) a daughter (carried by Gilbert). Sara is the half sister of Melissa Gilbert and graduated with honors from Yale. She is 39 years old.

    @MaryM and @Mike, you say your intelligence is “insulted” by being asked to believe it’s not scripted, but you are actually viewers of this fluff show? Okay then.

    So she has the legal standing to create families, bring children into them without their consent, destroy that family and start over simply because she’s bored with her spouse. Maybe things we’re horrible the first time around but she hasn’t said so. If this is marriage equality you can have it.
