Puerto Rican superstar Ricky Martin had quite a day of announcements when he recently appeared on The Ellen Show. Not only did he reveal that he is doing a residency in Las Vegas (start planning your bachelorette party now!), but he also shared his recent engagement to Jwan Yosef, a conceptual artist. Ricky is an art collector and was so stunned by Jwan’s work that he was compelled to contact the artist, and they quickly fell in love. After knowing each other for a little over a year, Ricky decided he was ready to propose and purchased a ring for his sweetheart. Despite being the one to pop the question, the singer also wears a band on his left ring finger, which he showed off to Ellen Degeneres during the interview.
Those who have proposed may be surprised at how relatable Ricky Martin’s tale is; the longtime celebrity seems to have been quite a bundle of nerves! Watch him tell his super sweet story in the video below.
