Actress Sara Gilbert quietly came out of the closet this week during a press conference introducing her new show “The Talk.”

Gilbert is the executive producer of the new talk-show and when asked how comfortable she is being “out,” the former TV star, most famous for her role as Darlene Conner on the hit 90’s sitcom “Roseanne”, she said:

“This is a whole new world for me… I’m not an expert on this, or I don’t analyze these things. I’m just sort of living my life. I don’t think [being out] will be a problem…I don’t ever really think of things as being out or in…I just think I am who I am, and when topics come up that are appropriate, I’ll talk about them and share when it seems right. I’ve been acting my whole life, and I’ve never really discussed my personal life. This is a talk show…So obviously I’m going to be discussing my life more.”

Sara, 35, has two children with her TV producer girlfriend Allison Adler and the two have been together since 2002. Adler gave birth to their 5-year-old son Levi while Gilbert gave birth to their daughter Sawyer, who turns 3 in August.
