Sara Gilbert, a co-host of CBS' The Talk, discussed her new girlfriend Linda Perry on the show's Wednesday episode.

Gilbert, 36, recently ended her 10-year relationship with Glee writer Allison Adler. The two women share custody of six-year-old son Levi and four-year-old daughter Sawyer.

As the show's co-hosts were discussing celebrity and privacy, Gilbert said she was hesitant to join the The Talk as a co-host because of how it might impact her private life.

“I knew as soon as I started to do that [play co-host] I would be talking about my personal life a little bit more,” Gilbert said. “So I struggled with that.”

She went on to describe how paparazzi surprised her on a Sunday morning.

“The other day, you know, I was just out and paparazzi were there and I was ... it was Sunday morning, and I wasn't really prepared, and then there's all these articles out that I'm in a new relationship.”

Gilbert added she wished she could have decided when and how to discuss her love life.

“I kinda would rather do it on my terms. I guess then, when I'm in full hair and makeup.”
