The couple has been together since a year now since Ricky popped the question.
"I was really nervous but I got on my knees and took out the little... not a box...velvet pouch and instead of saying will you marry me I said, 'I got you something'," Ricky said and burst out into a laughter.
Continuing the story, he said, "I said, 'I want to spend the rest of my life with you' and he said, 'What's the question?'. 'Would you marry me,' I asked."
And it was a 'very beautiful' moment said a visibly overwhelmed Ricky. Ellen was left speechless for a moment and then congratulated the 44-year-old singer.
