And how did he pop the question?

Ricky was so nervous about proposing to Jwan - who he has been dating for over a year - that he messed up what he wanted to say.

He told Ellen, "I was really nervous, but I got on my knees and I took out the little, not a box I just had it in a little velvet pouch and instead of saying 'Will you marry me'... I said, 'I got you something!' Bad. 

"And then he was like, 'Yes.' I said, 'I want to spend my life with you' and he was like, 'What is the question?'

"'Would you marry me?' And that's it."
