Ricky Martin is engaged!
Ricky Martin had some big news during his visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show which aired today: he’s getting married.
The single dad of twin eight-year-old sons recently proposed to partner Jwan Yosef, a London-based artist.
Martin shared with Ellen how they met: ‘He’s a conceptual artist and I’m a collector. So I started looking for art and I saw his art and I went crazy because I really love what he does, really original, and I contacted him.’
Joked DeGeneres: ‘So you collected him!’
That was more than a year ago and the pair have been together ever since.
‘I proposed and I was really nervous,’ Martin said.
‘Instead of saying, “Will you marry me?” I said, “I got you something.” I said,”I want to spend the rest of my life with you” and he said, “What is the question?”
Finally Martin managed, “Would you marry me?”
‘It was very beautiful and about 30 minutes after I said, “Wait. Did you say yes?’
