Ricardo Hurtado was only 16-years-old when he was hired to appear in the television adaptation of the Jack Black movie School of Rock. He traveled between LA and Atlanta to film the show and soon he permanently moved to California to further pursue a career in acting.
While in Los Angeles the actor was rumored to be dating fellow actress Jada Facer. Ricardo and his former girlfriend dated for a short period of time and went their separate ways soon after. By the end of 2019 the actor was already showing off his new girlfriend and they have been together ever since.
Ricardo Hurtado is dating his girlfriend Zuzu Holland. The first time he posted a picture of Zuzu on his Instagram page was on 27 November 2019. The couple was smushed together as Ricardo took a mirror selfie and teasingly mentioned he needed to clean the mirror without mentioning who the lady in his arms was.
The duo spent Christmas together, almost confirming their relationship. He even asked his close to a million followers on Instagram if his new girlfriend was "pretty." While some complimented the couple, others reminisced about Ricardo and Jada together. But it was clear Ricardo was moving on and Zuzu was the person he wanted to be with.
Ricardo and his girlfriend quarantined together as COVID swept across the world. The actor was seen hiking along with Zuzu while explaining to his fans that they are keeping away from other people while getting in a good workout. He also posted a video of the couple's day out featuring a hilarious shot of him falling off a galloping horse.
Their relationship was on a fast track and it was pretty evident Ricardo loved his girlfriend. So much so that after just over a year in a relationship the actor proposed. "She said yes!? I can’t wait to be your husband❤️ #enagaged," the actor shared on 16 November 2020.
Recently the actor was in Nicaragua with his girlfriend/fiance as they took in the sun and spent some quality time together on the beach. Though the marriage date is not set yet, the pace, their relationship, has kept in 2020, we expect the duo to tie the knot soon, so congratulations are in order.
