Ricky Martin has gone from livin’ la vida loca to livin’ la vida married. The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story star confirmed his marriage to artist Jwan Yosef to E! News on January 10th.
The pair began dating in 2016, and in November of 2017, Martin announced their engagement on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. They met when Martin was hunting for new art to add to his collection. He first fell in love with Yosef’s pieces and later fell for the artist himself. Yosef is a Syrian-born Swedish painter who specializes in plastic arts.
The legendary Puerto Rican singer was the one who nervously proposed. He told DeGeneres,
In October 2017, Martin revealed to Ocean Drive magazine that he didn’t want a private wedding. So even though they technically married in private, the couple plans to hold a huge three-day wedding bash consisting of “the dinner, the rehearsal, the party and the recovery,” as Martin described to E! News.
Yosef co-parents Matteo and Valentino, Martin’s nine-year-old twins. “My kids ask me about having two daddies and I tell them we are a part of a modern family,” Martin told Out magazine in a recent interview. “This is a beautiful sense of freedom.”
Congratulations to the happy couple! Don’t hesitate to reach out if you need our address for the invite.
