Since putting their romance on display, the 52-year-old actress has raved over the man in her life. Earlier this month, she posted a sweet birthday tribute to Ross, writing, “Happy Birthday Ross! You have brought me so much joy and peace and laughs these last few months.”
“I pinch myself, I am such a lucky 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, who she was married to from 2012 to 2015, tragically died by suicide. Following his passing, Ricki honored her ex-husband on Instagram.
“It is with a heavy heart that I share that my beloved soulmate, Christian Evans has passed. The world didn’t understand this man, but I did,” she shared at the time. “He succumbed to his life long struggle with bipolar disorder. For anyone who has ever lost a family member or friend to mental illness, my heart goes out to you.”
“I am a greater person for having known him and spent the past 6 and a half years of my life with him,” she added.
Ricki was also previously married to Rob Sussman from 1994 to 2004. They share two sons together, Milo Sebastian Sussman, 23, Owen Tyler Sussman, 19.
