BRET MICHAELS has proposed to his girlfriend.

The Posion rocker - who has been dating Kristi Gibson on and off for 16 years - popped the question while filming the finale of his reality TV show 'Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It'.

Getting down on bended knee, he said: "I want you to know that 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 we can find that inner love that we can have forever. I want you to be my wife. Please say yes or the rejection will kill me right now."

Kristi accepted and the couple then rushed to tell their daughters Raine, 10, and five-year-old Jorja the happy news.

The newly-engaged mum-of-two said: "I'm speechless. I thought this day would never come. He doesn't realise how happy he's made me."
