Woooo! Big congrats are in order for Ricky Martin who is a newly engaged man! The 44 -year-old Spanish-Puerto Rican superstar popped the question to artist, Jwan Yosef, his boyfriend of more than a year. Sharing the news on Ellen, Ricky gushed about the engagement and the unconventional way it played out.
“We just got engaged,” he shared. “I proposed. I was really nervous. But I got on my knees and I took out —not a box— I just had them in a little velvet pouch. Instead of saying, ‘Will you marry me?’ I said, ‘I got you something.’ I said, ‘I want to spend my life with you.’ And he was like, ‘What is the question?’ [I said] ‘Would you marry me?’ It was very beautiful … He said yes.”
This is amazing news for the couple who first stepped out publicly as a pair this past April, and from how Ricky talks about his future husband, he’s madly in love and excited for the future.
“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 love what he does, really original, and I contacted him — and then I collected him,” he said.
