RickyMartin is engaged to his boyfriend of just over a year, artist Jwan Yosef.
The latin pop star broke the news to Ellen DeGeneres. “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,” Martin gushed, according to E! News. “And then I contacted him.”
“And then you collected him,” Ellen DeGeneres joked. “We just got engaged,” Martin announced. “I’m sweating!”
Martin was “nervous” when he proposed. “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,” the singer said. “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.” He described the proposal as “very beautiful,” even if it took 30 minutes for him to realise Yosef said “yes.”
