According to Star magazine, POISON frontman Bret Michaels proposed to his on-and-off girlfriend of 16 years, Kristi Lynn Gibson. The rocker popped the question just after the 4th of July holiday weekend at his ranch outside of Scottsdale, Arizona while on a break from his "Roses & Thorns" American tour.

A source tells the publication, "Bret felt like now was the time because Kristi has been through so much with Bret and has been by his side every step of the way."

The insider insists the rocker's health scare has made him realise how important family is: "He's woken up. He now knows he wants to be a husband... Kristi is thrilled that they will be getting married." says the source. "They haven't set a date and no plans are in the works yet. But when Bret's tour ends they will work out the details. Bret wants to be in excellent health before he walks down the aisle. And, of course, he needs time to find the perfect bandanna to wear on his big day!"

Bret and Kristi have two daughters together, Raine Elizabeth, 10, and Jorja Bleu, 5.
