Ricky Martin And Jwan Yosef Tied The Knot In A Secret Ceremony

"I can’t introduce him as my fiancé," Martin told red carpet reporters. "He’s my husband. He’s my man."

Singer Ricky Martin revealed this week that he and partner Jwan Yosef wed in secret.

On the red carpet for FX’s The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, the 46-year-old kept things brief, only telling reporters that he and Yosef, who announced their engagement in 2016, had “exchanged vows” and were officially married.

“I can’t introduce [Jwan] as my fiancé,” Martin told reporters. “He’s my husband. He’s my man… We’ve signed all the papers that we needed to sign, prenups and everything.”

Martin’s incognito nuptials don’t quite line up with the wedding plans he’d described on Andy Cohen Live—namely, that he wanted a bustling “three-day affair”—but the couple plans to go through with a more luxe celebration later this year.

“We’re doing a heavy party in a couple of months,” he said. “I’ll let you know.”

There is one concern, though: Yosef was born in Syria, where most of his family still resides. The pair could have trouble celebrating their marriage in the U.S. due to Trump’s policies barring Syrians from entering the country. The two plan to figure it out, though.

“We still don’t know where we will do it, Los Angeles, Puerto Rico, or in Sweden, where my fiancé is from, or in Spain, where I am also from,” Martin said.

Feliz Año Nuevo de los Martin-Yosef ☀️
