Ricky Paull Goldin is the host of "Spontaneous Construction" on HGTV.

Ricky Paull Goldin's entertainment career took off at the age of 3. As a youngster, he starred in "Romper Room," "Alf," "Kate & Allie" and "21 Jump Street" and by the age of 15 he had made it to Broadway, starring in "On Golden Pond." By age 18, he had appeared in over 150 television commercials, winning four CLIOs. Ricky's list of achievements is impressive: movies, TV comedy, drama, and theater (straight plays & musicals) with command performances for 4 US Presidents. In addition, his quick wit makes hosting easy for him. He has hosted everything from ESPN auto races in Dubai, to 5 "Live from the Red Carpet" Emmy events for Disney/ABC.

Ricky has enjoyed great success in musical theater, from rock to Gilbert & Sullivan. He was handpicked by Tommy Tune and Jeff Calhoun from 3000 performers to star as Danny Zuko in the Broadway revival of "Grease," opposite Rosie O'Donnell and Brooke Shields. Ricky later starred in the "The Pirates of Penzance" in London and at the Olympic Theater, the Broadway of Dublin, Ireland.

Ricky and daytime proved to be a wonderful partnership. He was a series regular on "Another World," "Guiding Light," "All My Children" and daytime's #1 series "The Young and the Restless." Along the way Ricky picked up 4 Emmy nominations for Outstanding Actor — a nomination at each network — finally winning am Emmy for Best Couple in Daytime. To these and other accolades, Ricky can add a feat rarely seen: the unique distinction of being one of very few actors to cross over successfully to all three major networks in daytime television. He proved to be a fan favorite on each iconic drama.

Ricky's uncle, Jack Gold, is the mogul movie producer of, amongst others, "The Guns of Navarone," "The Medusa Touch" and "The Merchant of Venice." Producing is in his genes, and Ricky has always pursued his love of this process. With the successful creation of numerous TV pilots already under his belt, in 2010 Ricky set out on a personal journey to pay tribute to his late father, Dr. Paul Goldin, a superstar of the world of hypnotism and master of the paranormal. "SeeingVSBelieving," with Ricky as its creator, producer and host, premiered on TLC in May 2010.

Shortly after Ricky ended his run on "All My Children," Disney Family.com picked him to star in their collaboration with Kellogg's for a new brand of online advertising. "CeReality" is Disney Family's cutting edge mini-web series, and it debuted in late September 2011. The first of the series — "The Young and the Breakfast" — took an affectionate tongue-in-cheek poke at the soap opera genre and gave Ricky the perfect vehicle to showcase his natural comedic timing.

Ricky has produced shows for ABC and ESPN Sports, created and sold original content to TLC and is currently developing a new show at the Style Network.

Born in San Francisco to Irish and British parents, Ricky was raised on both sides of the Atlantic, attended Fordham University, and studied with the best acting coaches in the business. Ricky shares his world with his fiancée Gretta Monahan, the love of his life and co-producer of his greatest achievement to date, their son Kai Rei Goldin, born October 21, 2010.
