“I pinch myself, I’m such a happy girl,” she added. “Thank you for choosing me. I love you.”
News of Ricki’s engagement comes almost four years after her ex. Christian Evans, to whom she was married from 2012 to 2015, tragically died by suicide. After his death, Ricki honored her ex-husband on Instagram.
“It is with a heavy heart that I share that my beloved soul mate Christian Evans has passed away. The world did not understand this man, but I did,” she said at the time. “He succumbed to a lifelong battle with bipolar disorder. For anyone who has ever lost a family member or friend to a mental illness, my heart goes out to you.”
“I’m a bigger person because I knew him and spent the last six and a half years of my life with him,” she added.
