Ricki Lake: "I'm Totally in Love"

Ricki Lake is basking in the glow of new love! The actress and talk show host is spilling the details on her hot new boyfriend -- who she's already living with! 

"I'm totally in love," Lake, 42, told People.com. "We're having so much fun. I'm happier than I've ever been." 

So, who is this magnificent man that's making Lake so giddy?

"He's a normal guy," she says. "We met through my best friend. His name is Christian. He's a nobody but he's somebody to me. He's everything to me." 

Lake says that even her two sons, Milo, 14 and Owen, 9, are crazy about her new man, whom she's been seeing since last summer. But even with their blessing, Lake, who divorced Rob Sussman in 2005, isn't sure she wants to take the marriage plunge again.

"Never say never," she said about tying the knot. "I'm so cynical after my experience. 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. My little men love him. My little one said the other day 'Are you gonna marry him? I want you to marry him but it'll be weird going to my parents' wedding.' " 

The one downside of her new romance? The mom, who famously lost a ton of weight in 2007, says spending all this time concentrating on her relationship is wrecking her diet and exercise plan! 

"I went on a love binge," she says. "I haven't been going to the gym as much. I'm a bit fluffier than usual."
