On January 2018, Ricky finally tied the knot with his full-time partner Jwan Yosef. He revealed the news on a TV show saying:
“I’m a husband, but we’re doing a heavy party in a couple of months, I’ll let you know. We exchanged vows, and we’ve swear everything, and we’ve signed all the papers that we needed to sign, prenups and everything. “It feels amazing! I can’t introduce him as my fiance. I can’t. He’s my husband. He’s my man.”
He decided to come out as gay in 2010 on his official website where he wrote:
“I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.”
He further said in an interview that he kept it hidden because of the pressure from his well-wishers who said this could destroy his career. However, he couldn’t deny who he was anymore, and therefore he came out. He said:
“I can’t take it anymore. It’s all about me now, it’s not about what’s happening outside, it’s about what I need in order to be happy.’ Then I had my kids, and I said, ‘I have to come out.’ I mean, I’m not going to lie to these beautiful kids. To lie? No, that’s not the point. And you know, life works in cycles, it’s very interesting. Look at what I’m doing today, I’m talking on behalf of people that continue to hurt and through acting,”
