However, their marriage suffered when Ricky found himself falling for Linnea Miron, a commercial real estate lawyer.
Later, Ricky divorced with his then-wife, Kristen, and the divorce was finalized in June 2016. A year later, Ricky exchanged vows with Linnea on June 23, 2017, at precisely 7:45 p.m., based on his astrology app. As Ricky is a follower of astrology, the date of their marriage was selected because a new cycle was starting.
