Flip and get the details on how Ricky Martin meant his romeo, Jwan Yosef…
We wonder if their romance and possible wedding will happen on reality TV. It was announced on Thursdays that Martin is heading to VH1 with his own reality series.
Ricky Martin, 45, explains that he stumbled on the artist’s work on the popular site one day.
“I’m scrolling and I see this beautiful piece of art and I’m like, ‘Whoa, how cool! Who’s this?’ Then I start checking and all of a sudden I’m like, ‘Ooh, ooh.’ And then I wrote to him. Then we were talking for like six months without me hearing his voice. We talked about art – nothing sexy … I swear, nothing sexy. It was all about art and life in general. He used to live in London, I went to London and I met him.”
Martin and Yosef have been dating for more than a year, but they recently became engaged in 2016. Martin revealed he popped the question on Jwan Yosef last November and he said YES! During a November appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he said:
“I was really nervous. But I got on my knees and I took out —not a box— I just had them in a little velvet pouch. Instead of saying, ‘Will you marry me?’ I said, ‘I got you something.’ I said, ‘I want to spend my life with you.’ And he was like, ‘What is the question?’ [I said] ‘Would you marry me?’”
He also told Andy Cohen that he had “no idea” when the ceremony will take place, he noted that the wedding will be “big.”
Here is how he put it:
“I’m gonna make a lot of noise. Three-day wedding. Let’s have fun.”
It sounds like a lot of fun and a lot of sexy Latino hunks and friends.
