Talking about his relationship with his husband, Martin candidly explains that it took time to build his relationship with the contemporary artist.
"I contacted him, and we talked for six months. We were just sending messages, talking about life and existential issues. Nothing sexy, nothing sexual. It's not that he was sending me sexy pictures and vice versa, I swear. But when I first saw him, I said, 'I am going to marry this guy.'And apparently, he said exactly the same thing."
The singer further added.
"Obviously, he only told me this, later on, you have to keep it to yourself at first! But I lost my breath when I saw him. Six months' build-up and it was very romantic."
Being homosexual couple, Ricky and his husband are really happy after getting married and the singer chooses to use their visibility and post on his Instagram to inspire other gay men around the world to open up about themselves and be proud.

Talking about his efforts and support for the LGBTQ community.
"We love it! It's not even for us; it's for our kids. It's for my kids to look at us on that red carpet and say, 'Ah, those are my daddies, how cool!' And to boost my children with self-esteem and let them understand how amazing it is to be part of a modern family."
He further added;
"We know that we carry this flag and if we're going to carry this flag, let's sway this flag really loudly. Because at the end of the day, we're proud of who we are. Just being visible is a lot of help. That's my activism. Every time I post a picture of me and my husband on Instagram, that's my activism. And we'll keep fighting."
He definitely seems happier and with his noble effort to encourage other gay men to be free of fear, the couple is trying to be the best possible role models for their kids.
