After 16 on-and-off years together, the rocker, 47, proposed to Kristi Gibson on Monday night's finale of Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It on VH1. Gibson, 39, is mom to their daughters Raine, 10, and Jorja, 5.

Getting down on one knee, the Poison frontman said, "Please say yes or the rejection will kill me right now." Gibson responded in kind!

Gibson and their daughters stayed by Michaels' side earlier this year when he suffered a terrifying brain hemorrhage and then a subsequent stroke.

"She's the one who put up with me all these years," Michaels tells of his bride-to-be. Immediately after Gibson accepted his proposal, they broke the happy news to their little girls, he added. "[I told them] 'I did it! We'll all be together forever! Family hug!'"
