Sara Gilbert on Wednesday said she was overwhelmed by the response to her pregnancy.

Gilbert announced Tuesday on The Talk that she and wife Linda Perry are expecting their first child.

Sitting at the show's table, Gilbert said she had not expected the level of excitement her announcement generated from her co-hosts.

“I know some of you said, 'Oh we feel this is our baby.' And I really feel like it's your baby, too,” she told Julie Chen, Sharon Osbourne, Aisha Tyler and Sheryl Underwood.

Gilbert and Perry started dating in 2011 and tied the knot in March.

The 39-year-old Gilbert has two children from a previous relationship with television producer Allison Adler – son Levi, 9, and daughter Sawyer, 7.

Linda Perry, former vocalist and guitarist of 4 Non Blondes, can currently be seen on the VH1 reality series Make or Break: The Linda Perry Project, where she takes on the role of mentor to young musicians.
