Bret Michaels officially proposed to his girlfriend Kristi Gibson on the December 20 season finale of his VH1 reality show ‘Bret Michaels: Life As I know It,’ is reporting. The former Poison singer got down on one knee and said “Please say yes or the rejection will kill me right now,” and she said yes.

Engagement rumors began swirling over the summer, when Star Magazine reported Michaels proposed to Gibson over the Fourth of July weekend. While she was seen sporting a ring, Michaels told the CBS Early Show right after the rumors began circulating that he didn’t propose over the holiday weekend. He said that it was a promise ring, and added “We’re a work in progress.”

The two have been dating on-and-off for the past two years. They have two daughters together, 10-year-old Raine Elizabeth, and five-year-old Jorja Bleu.
