Sara Gilbert Welcomes Baby Boy with Linda Perry

Linda Perry celebrated the Dalai Lama's 80th birthday on Saturday with her 4-month-old son Rhodes Emilio by her side.

The "Beautiful" songwriter expressed her joy with the Supreme Court's recent marriage-equality ruling and said that her son will never have to face the struggles she had to go through with gay marriage.

"He's never going to have to know the problems that we have had to go through with gay marriage," Perry told Peoplemagazine. "He's never going to experience these things -- it's going to be something in the past."

Perry, wife of The Talk co-host Sara Gilbert, said motherhood has only made the couple closer. Gilbert also has two children from a previous marriage.

"We have to build together and collaborate on this human that we are going to create and help him with his vision of who he wants to be," Perry said.
