'Roseanne' star Sara Gilbert officially comes out

Actress Sara Gilbert "officially" identified herself as gay during a press conference this week at the Television Critics Association in Los Angeles, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The former "Roseanne" actress is raising two children with her partner, television producer Allison Adler.

Gilbert is the executive producer and co-host of CBS's new upcoming talk show "The Talk." When she was asked if she was comfortable being "out," she answered, "This is a whole new world for me."

"I'm not an expert on this, or I don't analyze these things," she said. "I'm just sort of living my life."

"The Talk," which Gilbert is executive producing and co-hosting, also features Julie Chen, Leah Remini, Holly Robinson Peete, Sharon Osbourne, and Marissa Jaret Winokur discussing current events and other issues, with an eye toward motherhood and parenting.

Gilbert and Adler have been together since 2002 and have son Levi, 5, and daughter Sawyer, who turns 3 in August. Adler gave birth to Levi, while Gilbert gave birth to Sawyer.
