“I proposed,” Ricky shared. “I was really nervous, but I got on my knees and I took out the little, not a box, I just had them in a little velvet pouch and instead of saying ‘will you marry me’ I said ‘I got you something!’,” Ricky explained, laughing at himself. “I said I want to spend my life with you, and he was like, what is the question? ‘Would you marry me?’ And then it was very beautiful, and then thirty minutes after I said, ‘Wait, did you say yes?'” Ricky shared. Aw!
