After months of engagement rumors, 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, the rocker got down on one knee and poured his heart out. "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." Kristi of course said yes — being the one who stood by Bret throughout the years, even when he survived a near-fatal brain hemorrhage in April. After proposing, the happy couple told their daughters, Raine, 10, and Jorja, 5, the exciting news. “ I did it! We’ll all be together forever!” said the rock star.
