Bret Michaels pops the question!

Bret Michaels is becoming a one-woman man and settling down. The rocker proposed to his on-again-off-again girlfriend of 16 years, Kristi Gibson.

You'll definitely want to eavesdrop on the Tuesday morning water cooler gossip if you missed the finale of Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It on VH1 Monday night -- Bret Michaels got engaged!

Bret Michaels pops the question!

Bret Michaels is definitely not taking any moments in his life for grated anymore including his relationship of 16 years with Kristi Gibson. Michaels asked for Gibson's hand in marriage during the finale of Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It, and from the sick look on his face, even a wild child like Michaels gets nervous when popping the big question.

"Please say yes or the rejection will kill me right now," Michaels said.

After 16 years of breaking up and making up, it all came down to one final answer -- Kristi Gibson's joyous yes!

The couple shares two daughters, Raine, 10, and Jorja, 5, who have been a huge focus of Bret Michaels' new lease on life and reality show. After suffering a life threatening brain hemorrhage that led to a stroke in early 2010, Kristi Gibson and their daughters stood vigil by his bedside while he made a miraculous recovery and even went on to win Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice 3, over Holly Robinson Peete.

Congratulations go out to Bret Michaels and Kristi Gibson.
