Sara Gilbert, co-host of The Talk and former Roseanne star, is pregnant, she announced on the talk show yesterday. Gilbert and her wife, musician Linda Perry of 4 Non Blondes fame, are expecting a baby, she explained—surprising her fellow hosts, Us Weekly reports. This week, The Talk's hosts are facing dares, the Los Angeles Times reports. The "Face Your Fears" segment would have involved Gilbert having a cinder block broken on her stomach. "I really believe in facing your fears," she said, "but I actually can't do the dare because I'm pregnant." The baby will be the couple's first; Gilbert has two kids with ex-partner Allison Adler.
