Bret Michaels to Marry Girlfriend Kristi Gibson After Amazing Recovery?
May 6, 2010
Bret Michaels has been released from the hospital since he suffered a brain hemorrhage and made a miraculous recovery. Will he marry girlfriend Kristi Gibson? He is considering it after his brush with death.
The New York Daily News reveals "Michaels says he may finally tie the knot with his on-again-off-again girlfriend, Kristi Gibson, who is the mother of his two daughters, Raine, 9, and Jorja, 5."
The rocker has also said he feels "lucky to be alive." The Poison frontman has staged a miraculous recovery after collapsing with a massive brain hemorrhage on 21 April.
After spending 10 says in intensive care at a Los Angeles hospital, the Celebrity Apprentice star has now been released, and he opened up about his dramatic ordeal to People magazine.
The 47-year-old father-of-two recalled being asked by medics in the emergency room if he had any children and, if so, to have them brought to the hospital immediately.
He told the magazine: "And I said in these exact words, 'Am I dying? If I'm dying, I want to see my kids, but if I have a chance, I don't want them to see me in this condition.’”
Michaels is expected to make a full recovery – something his doctor has revealed only happens in 10 to 20 percent of all similar cases.
