Ricky started dating Jwan in 2016. The Nobody Wants to Be Lonely singer announced their engagement on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that November.
Explaining how he and Jwan first met, Ricky told Ellen DeGeneres at the time,
Well, now he lives with me. He’s a conceptual artist and I’m a collector, so I started looking for art and I saw his art and I went crazy because I really love what he does. Really original. And then I contacted him. I had no idea what he looked like and then I saw what he looked like and I’m like, Yeah. And we just got engaged.
I proposed. I was really nervous, but I got on my knees and I took out the little metal box — I just had it in a little velvet pouch — and instead of saying ‘Would you marry me?’ I said, ‘I got you something!’ Bad! And then he was like, ‘Yes?’ I said, ‘I want to spend my life with you,’ and he was like, ‘What is the question?’ ‘Would you marry me?’ That’s it.
The Grammy winner, who is a father to 9-year-old twins Valentino and Matteo, posted a family photo with his children andJwan on New Years Day.
