Ricky Martin Engaged To Jwan Yosef – Watch “Ellen DeGeneres Show” Video!
Ricky Martin is engaged to Jwan Yosef, he announced on Wednesday’s “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” Watch below!
Martin was on the talk show to reveal his new residency, but DeGeneres said to him, “You’re in love.” The singer, of course, confirmed that he is indeed, and shared how he met Yosef, an art collector, last year. Together since January, he went on to reveal, “We’re engaged.”
After showing off a silver band on his ring finger, Martin recounted, “I proposed. I was really nervous, but I got on my knees and I took out the little metal box. I just had [the rings] in a little velvet pouch and instead of saying ‘will you marry me,’ I said, ‘I got you something!’ Bad!”
Martin went on, “And 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… It was very beautiful. And then like 30 minutes after, I said, ‘Wait, did you say yes?’ Yes, he said yes.”
This will be the first marriage for Martin, who is dad to 8-year-old sons Mateo and Valentino. “They love each other,” he said of the boys and Yosef. Back in 2012, Gossip Cop busted a report that falsely claimed Martin was marrying then-partner Carlos Gonzalez Abella. They ended up splitting in 2014.
Gossip Cop congratulates Martin now that he is, in fact, set to wed! Check out the full video below!
