"I met my fiancé on Instagram. I am an art collector and he's an artist. I'm scrolling and I see this beautiful piece of art ... I wrote to him," Ricky told radio host Andy Cohen.

"And we were talking [exchanging messages] for, like, six months without me hearing his voice. We talked about art, nothing sexy ... He used to live in London. I went to London and I met him."

The 45-year-old singer previously revealed he'd love to have a daughter with his fiancé.

When asked how his children - eight-year-old twins Matteo and Valentino - are, he shared: "Bello, bello. They are beautiful, they are eight years old. They are beautiful twin boys and they are growing like crazy. And now I want more, I want a little girl pretty soon."

And despite their whirlwind romance, Ricky feels "very certain" about their relationship.

"It's one of those things when you have very beautiful moments, magical moments, magical conversations and beautiful experiences and all this time, you're thinking, maybe it's here. Then you just go for it and allow yourself to feel ... I'm very certain about what's happening. I'm a hopeless romantic," he said.

"[After gay marriage was legalised] I thought, 'I hope someday I get to wear a freaking ring and celebrate love and bring my family and friends to a big feast and get all Latin crazy on it.' This [wedding] is going to be Middle Eastern and Latin crazy all at once. It's going to be one loud wedding!"
