There Is A Big Age Difference Between Riko & Nicolas
Riko celebrated her 26th birthday on Jan. 10, 2021, making her 31 years younger than her new husband (who is 57 years old). Fun fact — Riko’s birthday is also the day she and Nicolas applied for their wedding license, according to Daily Mail. She is four years younger than Nicolas’s 30-year-old son, Weston Coppola Cage.
Nicolas Gave Riko A Unique Engagement Ring
Nicolas revealed how he proposed to Riko while speaking on his brother Marc Coppola‘s radio show in Aug. 2020. “We’re really happy together and we’re really excited to spend that time together so I finally just said ”Look, I wanna marry you’ and we got engaged on FaceTime,” Nicolas told his brother.
As for the ring, Nicolas revealed, “I got her a black diamond engagement ring. Her favorite color is black so she wanted the black gold, and the black diamond. I customized and personalized it and I actually sent it to her [through] FedEx.”
Riko Lived In Japan
Nicolas also revealed on his brother’s podcast that Riko had spent part of the pandemic in Japan, leading them to enter a long-distance relationship. “She left New York and went back to Kyoto, Japan, and I went back to Nevada and I haven’t seen her for 6 months,” the upcoming Tiger King TV series star revealed during the Aug. 2020 podcast.
Riko & Nicolas Were First Linked Together In Early 2020
Although it’s unclear when Riko and Nicolas first started dating — or how they met — they were first seen together on a date in New Orleans in Feb. 2020, according to Daily Mail. They were then photographed holding hands in New York City in March of 2020, just weeks before the pandemic shut down the world, which you can see above.
Riko Is Nicolas’s Fifth Wife
Nearly two years before Nicolas’s nuptials with Riko, Nicolas married makeup artist Erika Koike — only to ask for an anulment four days later. The actor was also married to three other women: actress Alice Kim, 37 (2004-2016); Elvis Presley‘s daughter Lisa Marie Presley, 53 (2002-2004); and actress Patricia Arquette, 52 (1995-2001).
