The Talk host and producer Sara Gilbert gave the audience and her co-hosts a big surprise on air this week. While being offered a dare to lie on a bed of nails for the show's "Face your Fears" segment, Sara suddenly got tearful, saying "I actually can't do the dare because I'm pregnant!" Recounting the moment to Entertainment Tonight later that day, she said "Even though it's not my nature to be really public, it's nice to be able to spread some joy in the world." Based on the shrieks and smiles of her co-hosts and the audience, she clearly succeeded.
This will be the third child for Gilbert, and the first for her and her wife, rocker Linda Perry. Gilbert, the former Roseanne and Big Bang Theory actress has two children, Sawyer 7, and Levi, 9.
