With all that’s happened to him lately, one wouldn’t be surprised to see rocker and reality star Bret Michaels make some serious life changing decisions.  According to Star Magazine Michaels has gotten engaged to his on-again off-again girlfriend of 16 years, Kristi Lynn Gibson.  Gibson is the mother of his two daughters Raine Elizabeth and Jorja Blue.

According to the source the wedding details will be worked out when Bret’s Roses and Thorns tour is over and he has a clean bill of health. Bret reportedly decided to propose to his rock of love after narrowly surviving a brain hemorrhage back in April:

“Bret felt like now was the time because Kristi has been through so much with Bret and has been by his side every step of the way,” another source told Star.

Contradicting Star Magazine is Michaels himself as he has come out this morning and denied these rumors on the CBS Early Show.  According to People he stated:

“No. We are not engaged yet.  We’re a work in progress.”

The following photos of Bret and Kristi were snapped with daughters Raine, 10, and Jorja, 5, in New York City before and after an appearance on the David Letterman Show on July 12th.  It does look like Kristi is sporting her own rock of love on that most important of ring wearing fingers.

I can only imagine the scene around the old home place if the work in progress progresses to marriage. Bret, Lynn and his daughters at the ranch sit down and catch a little Rock of Love as an army of bimbos throw themselves at dad with quite a few succesfully hooking up.  Will Kristi received the coveted back stage pass to Bret eternity?  Only time and the reality TV show that is bound to happen will tell.
