Sara Gilbert and wife Linda Perry

So, Sara Gilbert surprised her cohosts on CBS’ The Talk Tuesday by announcing that she is pregnant. Gilbert, 39, married 4 Non Blondes frontwoman and producer Linda Perry, 48, in March.

Gilbert, who has two children with her former partner, Allison Adler, but this is the first time Gilbert herself has been pregnant.

Gilbert made the announcement in explaining why she would not be taking part in the planned “Face Your Fears” segment The Talk cast members are staging this week. On Monday, cast member Sheryl Underwood faced her fear by crawling into a glass coffin full of (non-venomous) snakes. Tuesday, Gilbert was supposed to lay down on a bed of nails, let them put another bed of nails on top of her and then put a concrete cinder block on top of that and break the cinder block with a sledge hammer.

Gilbert choked up a bit in explaining to her cast mates why she wouldn’t be doing the challenge, and when she said, “I’m pregnant” they all burst into cheers and tears with her.

It’s pretty amazing. Watch the video below.
