It's no longer only a tease: Bret Michaels asked his on-off girlfriend of 16 years, Kristi Gibson, to marry him on Monday night's finale of his VH1 reality show, Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It – and she said yes!
The first thing they did afterwards? Tell their daughters, Raine and Jorja, the great news.
The rock star told them, "I did it! We'll all be together forever! Family hug!" When he got down on his knee, Michaels, 47, told Gibson, 39, "I love you, and you've been unbelievably a big part of my life, and we have two beautiful girls together. ... I know we love and respect each other, and I hope that we can find that inner love that we have forever. And I want you to be my wife."
He added, "Please say yes, or the rejection will kill me right now."
Gibson said she never thought this day would come. Michaels, who survived a near-fatal brain hemorrhage in April, also said that after all they've been through, who's still standing with him?
"Kristi – she's the one who put up with me all these years."
While filming the finale of his reality show, Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It, Michaels proposed to Kristi Lynn Gibson, his on-again, off-again companion of 16 years. In July 2012, he announced that he and Gibson had separated. They have two daughters together, Raine Elizabeth (b. May 20, 2000) and Jorja Bleu (b. May 5, 2005).

I'm amazed to hear Bret and Kristi are no longer together. Obviously she is not his rock of love. Bret deserves to be happy.

i think kristi is awesome. It couldn't have been easy for her to watch the man she loves and the father of her children act all crazy on the rock of love shows. But, she obvisouly must love him with all her heart, who can blame her. He is one hell of a catch. I've been in love with Bret since the world premiere of the talk dirty to me video. I hope they both make each other really happy. Their girls appear to be awesome, I really enjoyed watching them on Life as I know it. Thank-you Bret and Kristi for letting us all into your lives, and thank-you Kristi for saving Bret. I can't imagine this world without him. I wish you both the best.


I think he should marry Kristi , her name is spelled just like mine, one for the kids they need him and i think Kristi would be there for him if and when he is ever ill. go for it Kristi . Hang in there . Bret and Kristi i think will be together forver, sometimes life takes you for a long ride but you got stop for fuel soon !!!!! Kristi is ur running fuel. Love you guys ~~~

I agree.. I saw her own Oprah, and too me she looked like an Elvira, Michael Jackson. I was shocked, thought he would be with someone way better. He`s too hot for her.

AziaMay 20, 2010

She looks like a plastic surgery nightmare.. She talks out the side of her face. If thats what he wants.. he could do a million times better.

All this talk about Bret not wanting to marry Kristi and that he`s too much of a player is just stupid. Maybe he hasn`t found that one special person in his life yet. It doesn`t mean that he doesn`t love her. But maybe she isn`t the one ! Why settle if you don`t have to. Life is too short.

Katie MMay 13, 2010

Are you sure he is not already married? Check the picture in People from the ER. The picture is from 2009. Looks like a wedding ring to me.

I have been reading on numerous message boards online that Bret won the Celebrity Apprentice (even Cindi Lauper says he is a contender to win it) and his getting sick was really a diabetes setback and over exhaustion and not a brain hemmorage and this was all done to hype him winning the apprentice and his new book coming out and his tour. I tend to agree because no one goes from having a brain hemmorage to being 100 percent okay after a week. It`s all PR (public relations) and even Ricki Rockett said Bret was working too hard. And I don`t think he will ever marry Kristi or anyone for that matter. Bret is Bret and he will never change his ways.

PattySMay 9, 2010

Personally, I believe they were married and never divorced. Just my opinion. And who really cares? He`s alive and he`s lucky. He`s taking his life in his hands if he tries to go on tour so soon after this hospitalization. He needs to be 100 for MONTHS before he even considers touring again. Otherwise, he may not be so lucky next time. Please Bret, take your time, OK? Your fans would rather wait and see you recover than have you tour and risk your health. It`s not worth it. Worry about your family and kids first. This was too close of a call. God Bless.

KimMay 7, 2010

I am copying an excerpt from the internet I just found to further my point that Bret will never marry Kristi `I`m not leaving his side,` Gibson told the paramedics. I held his hand and told him, `It`s going to be okay.` Just from his eyes, you could tell how much pain he was in. I wanted to take away that pain so bad.He was just worried about me and the girls - that`s all he cared about. I was like don`t worry about us, we`ll be fine. Kristi and Bret have dated on-and-ff for the last sixteen years. The sometimes-couple is parents to Raine, 9, and Jorja, 5. Michaels called their relationship a positive work in progress. Hmm.Kristi may be feeling the post-disaster-glow, but it doesn`t seem like the bonding experience has made Bret much more certain about his relationship with Kristi. Don`t tell Kristi, it might make her a slightly crappier nurse for Brett as he continues to recover.

KimMay 6, 2010

Thanks Mary. Anyone can see that Bret is not in love with Kristi enough to marry her. If he truly loved her he would say more than, she`s a great person. Like I said, I am glad he is alive and will make a full recovery but there is no chance in hell he will marry her. And if you look at that family portrait in People Magazine of Bret, his two daughters and Kristi, Kristi isn`t that pretty and Bret could do way better than her. Bret knows this. He credits her for taking him to the hospital. I mean she saved his life and all he can say is she`s such a great person .???? That`s a slap in the face to Kristi.

MaryMay 6, 2010

I agree with Kim, a man who truly loves his woman doesn`t say she`s nice or something so platonic. He is a player, and once they have that type of life, they miss it terribly if they get tied down
