So, what's there to know about Rick Harrison's dating history? Is he married or single?

It's understood that Rick got married to his high school sweetheart, Kim, in 1982. They welcomed their first son, Corey, in April 1983. They had Adam a year later, in 1984. 

Rick and Kim parted ways in 1985. Rick reportedly met his second wife, Tracy, on a blind double date — and it was love at first sight. They got married in 1986, and they stayed together for an impressive 25 years. They share a son named Jake. 

Rick and Tracy divorced in 2011, but Rick didn't stay on the dating market for too long. He met a legal secretary named Deanna Burditt that same year, and the two have been inseparable ever since.

"I'm living the dream," Rick said shortly after the proposal.

Rick first laid eyes on Deanna at the Aureole Las Vegas, an upscale restaurant located inside the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. They returned to the chic eatery about one year later to celebrate Valentine's Day. It was then that Rick decided to propose. 

"I didn't really ask her, I told her 'Girl, I'm marrying you,' and then I gave her the ring," Rick recalled the relationship landmark in an interview with People.

Rick and Deanna tied the knot at a lavish wedding held at the Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel in Laguna Beach, Calif., in July 2013. 180 guests were in attendance. 

Danny Koker served as the minister — foregoing the more traditional priestly uniform and opting for a sleeveless cassock-vest hybrid, with a set of chains adorning his crisply-ironed black pants — while Austin "Chumlee" Russell served as the ring-bearer. 

"I just had no idea there was so much involved. I just thought you got a cake, had a party, buy a keg," Rick said about the complicated wedding planning procedures. 

Rick and Deanna have three boys each from their previous marriages. Deanna was married twice before meeting Rick, as per People
