They got married on December 30, 2017, in Brooklyn Arts Center, Wilmington, North Carolina. Unfortunately barely two weeks after they became man and wife Earnhardt was deployed to Afghanistan. It was tough for both of them especially Ricketts but she was now a tough military wife so she took it on her chin and gamely carried on.
