Ricky Martin has big news. The man who promoted “Livin’ La Vida Loca” has traded in that endless party and decided to settle down instead.
Martin proposed to his boyfriend of one year, Jwan Yosef, and shared the news on Ellen today (November 16th). Ellen peppered him with questions about how they met. “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 really loved what he does, really original, and I contacted him,” Martin explained.
Ellen quickly interrupted with a joke. “And then you collected him,” she said.
But Martin turned serious when describing the proposal. “I was really nervous but I got on my knees, and I took out the little…no box, I had them in a little velvet pouch,” he recounted. “Instead of saying ‘Will you marry me?’ I said, ‘I got you something.’ Bad. And then he was like ‘Yes?’ I said, ‘I want to spend my life with you, and he was like, ‘What is the question?'”
