Ricky Martin Announces He’s Engaged To Jwan Yosef

The singer also revealed he signed a deal for a Las Vegas residency.

Ricky Martin was full of surprises when he stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week, including the announcement that he just proposed to his boyfriend.

The singer said he was nervous and fumbled the proposal to Jwan Yosef, the artist who he has been dating for a little over a year.

This Guy ❤️ #firewalkwithme

“Instead of saying, ’Will you marry me?,’ I said, ’I got you something!’ Bad,” he explained to Ellen.

He added that eventually Yosef had to ask, “What is the question?,” because Martin simply said, “I want to spend my life with you,” without ever actually proposing.

The Latin pop star said he was so flustered that it actually took him 30 minutes to realize Yosef said “yes.”

In addition to the engagement news, Martin revealed that he will begin a new Las Vegas residency next year at the Park Theater at Monte Carlo.
