BRET MICHAELS is planning to marry his girlfriend, Kristi Gibson.

The Poison singer, who is recovering from a brain haemorrhage he suffered two weeks ago, admits his ordeal has made him reassess his life and he is considering tying the knot with Kristi.

Bret - who has children Raine, nine, and Jorja, five, with Kristi - said: "As painful as this experience has been, I was given a second chance, right? I don't want to sit around every night worrying this is going to happen again. What I want to do is make a positive bucket list and say, 'I'm just gonna go for it.'

"Getting married, for sure, is something I have never done. Kristi's such a great person. We'll see if that happens. But yes, that may be one of the big things on the list."

Kristi and Bret were living together at the time of his brain haemorrhage and he credits her with getting him to the hospital and saving his life.
