Bret Michaels engaged to girlfriend Kristi Gibson -- finally

Bret Michaels engaged to Kristi Gibson Bret Michaels, the heavy metal rocker turned reality TV star, is engaged to longtime girlfriend Kristi Gibson after proposing to her on his show "Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It."

In the episode, which aired Monday, 47-year-old Michaels got down on one knee and proposed to Gibson, 39, adding, "Please say yes, or the rejection will kill me right now."

"The Apprentice" winner, who's had a terrible year health-wise, will undergo surgery in January to repair a hole in his heart. The hole, there since birth, was discovered as he recovered from a massive brain hemorrhage on April 23, 10 days after an emergency appendectomy.

"Love and marriage are the ultimate, but I still get a little sweaty about the marriage thing," Michaels told People before the show aired. 

One problem is solved: "I can't believe that after 16 years, I'm still calling Bret my boyfriend," Gibson said previously on the show. So, problem solved?

They have two kids together: Raine, 10, and Jorja, 5.

God bless and good luck to Bret and Kristi-nice to hear good news for a change!

Wonder if this will be the subject of another reality TV show on Vh1...

But happy for them, either way!

Two children together and some 16 yrs together, wow, now let's get married? At 47 Michaels still gets panicked over marriage, come on dude, you all most died a couple of times. Facing your own mortality is scarier than marriage. Some of us just don't grow up.

Will he wear a bandana and graphic tee to the wedding as well?

Who are Kristi Gibson's Parents? This sounds more like a shot gun engagement/wedding. It is interesting that there is no comments from the parents but a huge article calling her a Vancouverlite in a New York paper.

It also sounds as though perhaps she was using the kids as leverage, not unheard of but it makes me yawn.

Be the "bigger" woman Kristi, don't hold a contract for television over the man's head just to get marriedl. No wonder he's shaking in his boots.
