Bret Michaels is (more open to) getting hitched.
"We've been talking a lot about getting engaged, and we'll see what happens," Michaels said. "We just want to make sure we're not doing it for anyone other than ourselves."
Michaels and Gibson have been dating off and on for 16 years, according to People, and have two daughters together, Raine, 10 and Jorja, 5.

Following Michaels’ brain hemorrhage on April 21, Michaels and Gibson have talked about the experience bringing them closer together.
"I said, 'I'm not leaving his side,'" Gibson said in May. "I held his hand and told him, 'It's going to be okay.' Just from his eyes, you could tell how much pain he was in. I wanted to take away that pain so bad."
Michaels, for his part, credited “fate” for a relationship “intervention.”
"Hopefully we'll get engaged,” he told People on Monday. “But if we don't, we'll still love and respect each other."
