Last night Bret Michaels finally proposed to his girlfriend of 16 years Kristi Lynn Gibson on the finale of his reality show Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It.
The couple immediately told their children 10-year-old Raine Elizabeth Sychak and -year-old Jorja Bleu Sychak. The couple’s relationship has somehow survived multiple seasons of Rock of Love, a reality show where Bret “dated” a vast array of hard-partying young women with questionable STD statuses.
“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. Please say yes, or the rejection will kill me right now.”
This new excitement and joy in the family’s life should help them all see through Bret’s heart surgery, which is scheduled for January.
