Steve-O has explained why he made the unusual decision to wear an engagement ring.
The Jackass star popped the question to his partner Lux Wright in 2018.
Announcing the news on Instagram he shared a slew of cute snaps, including one of Wright’s hand complete with an engagement ring, alongside the caption: “Last night, in front of a bunch of my Jackass buddies, my closest friends, my dad, and my sister... she said ‘yes’.
"I planned that for more than six months, and I’m so happy— I can’t wait for you all to see it... #GNARLY.”
And it wasn’t just Wright who got herself a ring, Steve-O, whose real name is Stephen Glover, went down the untraditional route of wearing one himself.
During an interview with People, Steve-O explained why he decided to wear one and revealed when the pair will walk down the aisle.
He told the publication: "I think it's silly that only a woman should wear an engagement ring. So I wear one too."
Fair enough - makes sense to me.
When asked when the big day is likely to take place, he added: "The plan for our marriage is still to wait until we buy our animal sanctuary."
Steve-O has been married twice before to Candy-Jane Tucker between 2002-2003 and Brittany McGraw from 2006-2008.
He also a brief and somewhat surprising relationship with Stacey Solomon after the pair met on ITV’s The Jump.
Speaking to Keith Lemon during an appearance on Celebrity Juice back in 2015, the Jackass star explained that he had a crush on Solomon as soon as they met.
"Pretty much on the first night I was just getting creepy and looking her up online," he confessed.
"I liked her right away and we just started having a great time. Everyone says that we’re so opposite but I don’t see it."
That being said, the romance was a short one, and Steve-O has recently confessed that he isn't thrilled with how they ended things.
Writing in his book A Hard Kick in the Nuts: What I've Learned from a Lifetime of Terrible Decisions, he said: "I was smitten, I lavished her with attention, I got what I wanted and then I broke it off.
"I had become not only part of her life, I'd become part of her kids' lives too. And then - poof - I was gone... To this day, I still beat myself up about the way it went down.
"Ironically, I don't think Stacey does. We aren't in touch any more, but she has corresponded with my family and seems to bear no ill toward me.
"She seems to be a happy person who can go through life without gigantic grudges, even when they might be totally justified. What a freak."
