Ricki Lake is engaged! The happy news comes straight from the bride-to-be, who couldn’t hold the secret in any longer.
Ricki Lake is going to the chapel to get herself hitched! The happy news comes straight off the 42-year-old’s official Twitter page, where she shares this photo of herself and husband-to-be, Christian Evans.
Lake tweeted Thursday afternoon, “Thrilled to share some happy news with you… I’m engaged!” An hour later the actress and television host added, “The cat is out of the bag. Phew! I’m terrible at keeping secrets. :)”
Lake and 40-year-old jewelry designer Evans began dating last summer after meeting through mutual friends. She recently spoke of the new man in her life gushing, “I’m totally in love. I’m happier than I’ve ever been.”
This will be the second marriage for Lake, who is divorced from artist Rob Sussman. The pair are parents of 14-year-old son Milo and 10-year-old son Owen. Ricki and Rob ended their relationship in 2010 after 10 years of marriage.
No word yet on when Lake and Evans will be walking down the aisle. A rep for Lake says,”There’s no plan or wedding date because it is obviously so recent. They were in Spain on vacation and he popped the question.”
Anyone care to join us in a round of ‘Go Ricki! Go Ricki!’?
Congratulations to Christian Evans and Ricki Lake!
