Ricky Martin is officially off the market. The 44-year-old singer proposed to his partner Jwan Josef. The couple started dating in January of this year, but for the Puerto Rican heartthrob it was the love of art that led him to Josef.
“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,” he said to Ellen.
The singer was so nervous when he proposed that he forgot to ask him the big question. “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.”
Check out the interview on the Ellen show:
Jwan Yosef is a Syrian Swedish painter and artist of plastic arts based in London. Martin says that his adorable 8-year-old twins love him, so we’re sure it’s a match made in heaven. Congratulations to the happy couple!
