Ricky Martin Is Engaged To Partner Jwan Yosef
He shared the happy news on The Ellen DeGeneres Show!
The 44-year-old singer breaks the news to Ellen DeGeneres in a Wednesday appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, revealing that he popped the question to artist Jwan Yosef — his boyfriend of more than a year.
“We just got engaged,” he gushed. “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.”
Martin had a slightly different way of popping the traditional question. “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?'”
Martin flashes his engagement band on the show, and tells DeGeneres that the two are now living together.
“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,” Martin says with a laugh.
Tune in for Ricky's appearance on Ellen on Wednesday!
Congratulations, guys! We'll go weep in the corner now.
