Ricki Lake is sharing all the risqué details surrounding her recent engagement … and it involves nudity!
While appearing on "Watch What Happens Live," the talk show host said she was in her birthday suit when her boyfriend-turned-fiancé Ross Burningham popped the question.
"I was naked in the Jacuzzi with my man on the first night that we're in my new Malibu home. So it was romantic. It was very spontaneous and I couldn't be happier," she told Andy Cohen. "He was surprised too."
Interesting enough, Ross popped the question without any jewelry in hand!
"There's no ring yet!" Ricki said.
The talk show legend announced on Instagram over the weekend that she had gotten betrothed to her man.
"Friends, I'm so so so excited to share some good news! I'm engaged!" she captioned a photo with her new fiancé. "This is Ross. He is my person. He is wonderful."
Ricki added, "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."
While she's clearly happy, it's fair to say that it wasn't love at first sight for Ricki and Ross — it was more of a "love 'em and leave 'em" situation. She joked to Andy that Ross was more of a steady "booty call" for a bit before things got serious.
"He is wonderful," she said, indicating that they met in June 2020. "Everyone in my life who has met him just gets it. We're great together."
The "Business of Birth Control" filmmaker first introduced Ross to her Instagram followers in December 2020 when she posted a selfie with him. "LOVE," she wrote in the caption
Ricki was previously married to Rob Sussman from 1994 to 2004. They share two sons. She later married Christian Evans. In 2017, two years after Ricki and Christian divorced, he took his life after a long battle with bipolar disorder.
