Ricki Lake, Twitter


Go Ricki! Go Ricki! Yes, Ricki Lake is ready to go bridal.

Former talk show host/Hairspray star has just gotten engaged to a mystery boyfriend, announcing the happy news not in a press release, but on her Twitter page today.

So who's the lucky guy?

"Thrilled to share some happy news with you...I'm engaged! :)" she posted to followers.

Lake has been dating her betrothed, Christian Evans, a 40-year-old jewelry designer, for about a year now, rep Josh Sabarra tells E! News. They met through a mutual friend.

"There's no plan or wedding date because it is obviously so recent," Sabarra told us. "They were in Spain on vacation and he popped the question."

Lake was previously married for 10 years to Rob Sussman, with whom she has two sons:  Milo, 14, and Owen, 9.

The duo divorced in 2005.

Just last year Lake said she was in no rush to get married again, telling People she was "cynical" after her first experience.

"Never say never," she said. "But this is just so natural and easy. I'm with a man who doesn't feel threatened. He doesn't want to keep me down. And I've never been treated like this in my life."

Mazel tov, you two!
