Her romance came four years after she lost her "beloved" ex-husband, Christian Evans. He died of suicide in 2017 and she was utterly crushed. 

Ricki opened up to the Daily Mail about how her decision to shave her hair and admitted it finally gave her the confidence to look for love once more. 

"You know, I really think there is hope because if I can find love after losing my beloved, you know, four years ago to suicide and mental illness, I never, ever, ever thought I'd have an opportunity to share my life with someone. And I met a perfect guy at the perfect time during COVID of all things."

Love certainly suits her!
