“He said yes!” Ricky Martin engaged to boyfriend
Ricky Martin has announced to the world he is engaged to his boyfriend of just over a year, Jwan Yosef
Ricky Martin is over the moon, after announcing on The Ellen Show that he is engaged to his boyfriend of just over a year, Jwan Yosef.
Speaking to DeGeneres, he explained how the relationship came to be -
“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 said he was the one who proposed, telling Ellen how he did it.
"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.”
Martin said the proposal was “very beautiful” and explained it took a good 30 minutes to sink in that Yosef had agreed.
Ellen also enquired how Yosef is with Martin’s eight-year-old twins…
Martin’s response just made us melt…
“They love each other. It’s perfect, Ellen. It’s been really special.”
