The Livin' La Vida Loca singer has announced his engagement
Ricky Martin has announced his engagement to Jwan Yosef.
It's huge news for the Livin' La Vida Loca singer, who has been dating Jwan for over a year.
Ricky revealed the surprise engagement during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday, telling Ellen: "We just got engaged. I'm sweating!"
The iconic singer went on to tell the story of how he and artist Jwan had made, explaining: "He's a conceptual artist and I'm a collector. I started looking for art and I saw his art and I went crazy because I really love what he does. Really original. And then I contacted him".
Ricky went on to explain how he proposed, revealing he was so nervous that it took '30 minutes' for him to be able to process that Jwan had said 'yes'.
He explained: "I got on my knees and I took out the little metal box. I just had it in a little velvet pouch and instead of saying, 'Will you marry me?' I said, 'I got you something!' Bad... Then he was like, 'Yes.' I said, 'I want to spend my life with you,' and he was like, 'What is the question?' 'Would you marry me?' That's it".
Aw, how romantic - congratulations, guys!
