There’s a whole lot to talk about: Sara Gilbert‘s baby is here!
The Talk co-host welcomed a son with her wife, musician Linda Perry, on Saturday, Feb. 28, it was announced on Monday’s show.
Son Rhodes Emilio Gilbert Perry is the actress’s first child with Perry. Gilbert is also mom to daughter Sawyer, 7½, and son Levi, 10, from her previous relationship.
“Our very own Sara and her wife Linda are the proud parents of a new baby boy and both mother and child are doing well,” co-host Julie Chen said.
On Tuesday Perry thanked fans, Tweeting, “Thank you thank you thank you. I can’t express my emotions probably the first time I haven’t found words useful. The feelings are enormous.”
During a week that pushed the co-hosts to face their fears on the talk show in September, Gilbert, 40, was forced to back out of lying on a bed of nails.
“I actually can’t do it, because I’m pregnant,” she said before tearing up. “I feel good, I feel really good … at first I was really tired.”
