Riko was simply a vision with her gorgeous black midi dress featuring a daring amount of fringe. She stole the spotlight by rocking an oversized, sparking diamond necklace for the annual, celeb-packed event. With her luscious raven locks left long and loose and just a dab of lipstick, the pregnant actress let her natural beauty take center stage. Alongside her, Nicolas kept a cool figure in a black and red plaid suit that he topped off with a black tee and brown loafers.

Meanwhile, the Pig star said he believes he’s finally found his perfect match with Riko, his fifth wife. “I’m really happily married. I know five is a lot, but I think I got it right this time,” he told The Los Angeles Times in January. Nicolas was previously married to Patricia ArquetteLisa Marie PresleyAlice Kim and Erika Koike. And when asked by the outlet to list his favorite things in life, Nicolas immediately put Riko at the top of the list! Fifth time’s truly a charm!

In January, the Raising Arizona alum and Japanese actress, who married in February 2021, announced they are expecting their first child together. “The parents-to-be are elated!” a rep told People at the time. This will mark Nicolas’ third child: he is also dad to son Kal-El, 16, with ex-wife Alice, and son Weston, 31, with ex-girlfriend Christina Fulton.

The actor previously revealed he met Riko through mutual friends in Japan while he was filming the sci-fi thriller Prisoners of the Ghostland. In August, Nicolas opened up more about his relationship to Riko, revealing he popped the question over FaceTime. “She left New York and went back to Kyoto, Japan and I went back to Nevada and I haven’t seen her for six months and we’re really happy together and we’re really excited to spend that time together so I finally just said look ‘I wanna marry you’ and we got engaged on FaceTime,” he said on his brother Marc “The Cope” Coppola‘s radio show.
