By Sounak Mukhopadhyay | April 2, 2014 10:55 AM EST
Sara Gilbert, probably most famous for playing Darlene Conner in the ABC sitcom "Roseanne", married songwriter Linda Perry. Sara is equally known for her portrayal of Leslie Winkle on CBS's The Big Bang Theory while Linda is the former lead singer of "4 Non Blondes". She was also the main songwriter for the band. Sara and Linda got engaged in 2013. BBC quoted Sara's "The Talk" co-host Julie Chen calling the "beautiful ceremony" "magical". TMZ called the wedding as grand as a "rock concert".
Elton John (L) and his partner David Furnish pose at the 2014 Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Party in West Hollywood, California in this file photo taken March 2, 2014. British singer Elton John will marry long-time partner David Furnish now that Britain's legalization of gay marriage has been put into effect, the singer said in an interview on Monday.
Sara previously thanked her former boyfriends for helping her realise her actual sexual orientation. She ended her relation with actor Johnny Galecki after she had realised that she was a homosexual. Sara had a couple of children with Allison Adler. Linda, on the other hand, wrote lyrics for several A-listers including Celine Dion, Christina Aguilera, James Blunt and Pink.
