Ricki took to Instagram to reveal to fans she is a married woman as she shared three photos of the ceremony, one of which showed her exchanging her vows.

The former TV star captioned: “We did it! 1/2/22. Ross and I said I DO!”

Fans were all about it as they took to the comments section to respond with one person saying: “I couldn’t love this more. Mazel Tov!!!”

Another chimed in: “Congratulations to you guys,” as more sent in their kind words, including some famous names.

Actress Cheryl Hines said: “That’s amazing! So much love to you!” while Hocus Pocus star Kathy Najimy wrote, “Richard!! Congratulations Angel head! I love you!!”

Back in February, Ricki shared with her followers that she would soon be walking down the aisle, as she wrote: “Friends, I’m so so so excited to share some good news! I’m engaged! This is Ross. He is my person. He is wonderful.

“I love him very much and I am so grateful I get to love and be loved so deeply by this stellar human. Our next chapter is sure to be a good one.”

This is not the first time that Ricki has been married as she tied the knot with Christian Evans back in 2012 before they parted ways in 2015.

Two years after their split, Christian, who battled bipolar disorder, died by suicide.


Last year Ricki remembered her ex in a tribute post: “Today, February 11th marks 4 years since the world lost this beautiful soul.

“Christian Evans continues to be my greatest teacher. Through his compassion and kindness for others, especially those suffering with mental illness.”

She added: “Forever grateful for the unconditional love we shared.”

Ricki, who shares two kids with her first husband Rob Sussman, has battled her own thoughts of suicide in the past.


She once wrote on social media: “I have been struggling with hair loss for most of my adult life.

“It has been debilitating, embarrassing, painful, scary, depressing, lonely, all the things. There have been a few times where I have even felt suicidal over it.

“Almost no one in my life knew the level of deep pain and trauma I was experiencing. Not even my therapist/s over the years knew my truth…”

She concluded: “I am liberated. I am free. I am releasing and letting go. I am brave. I am beautiful. I am love.”

Ricki showed off her shaved head back in January 2020.
