Gilbert, 38, who starred as rebellious daughter Darlene Conner on the 1990s TV comedy “Roseanne,” made the announcement on the all-women talk show she created for CBS television.

Gilbert, 38, said Perry proposed while surprising the actress with a serenade by musicians during a picnic.

“It‘s, like, the most amazing proposal ever,” Gilbert said on the show.

Perry, 47, the former singer in the 1990s rock group 4 Non Blondes, now works as a songwriter, penning hits for pop singers Pink and Christina Aguilera, including the 2002 ballad “Beautiful.”

Gilbert has two children from a previous relationship with television producer Allison Adler.
