Bret Michaels proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Kristi Gibson, on Monday night’s season finale of his VH1 reality show Bret Michaels: Life as I Know It. And she said yes!
Michaels, 47, and Gibson, 39, have had an on-again, off-again relationship for 16 years and have two children together.
Michaels has admitted in the past that he is nervous about making that commitment.
“Love and marriage are the ultimate, but I still get a little sweaty about the marriage thing – I don’t know why,” says Michaels.
But on Monday night’s show, he got over his fear and got engaged.
“I bought you that ring, not to be a friendship with benefits … we’ve had that for a while,” Michaels told Gibson as he proposed. “It’s just one of those things.
“I love you and I respect you and you’ve been through so much with me,” he continued. “It means something to me.”
Just last month there were rumors that Michaels was the cause of the split between Miley Cyrus’ parents. It was reported that Tish Cyrus was having an affair with Bret Michaels, which is what caused the divorce. But Michaels fully denied those rumors saying, “I’ve been friends with her family forever.”
