Congratulations are in order for Ricky Martin, and we didn’t even realize it! The actor has revealed that he has married his boyfriend, Jwan Yosef! “I’m a husband,” Ricky revealed to E! News on Wednesday, Jan. 10, “but we’re doing a heavy party in a couple of months. I’ll let you know.”
The couple made quite the dashing pair when they attended the 2018 Golden Globes together earlier this week. Ricky and Jwan began dating in 2016, and in November of that year revealed on The Ellen Show that they had become engaged. “I just had [the ring] in a little velvet pouch,” Ricky confessed at the time, “and instead of saying ‘Will you marry me?’ I said, ‘I got you something!’ Bad.” Thankfully, despite the initial confusion, Jwan said “yes!”
While no formal ceremony has taken place, Ricky revealed that he and Jwan have done everything else to make it official. “We exchanged vows,” he confided, “and we’ve swear [sic] everything, and we’ve signed all the papers that we needed to sign, prenups and everything.” Now if only we could score an invite to the reception — we’re sure it’ll be spectacular!
Ricky first achieved fame as part of the boyband Menudo when he was 12. In 1994, he joined the cast of General Hospital as Miguel, and became incredibly popular with soap fans for the two years he was on the show. Following that, Ricky’s musical career crossed over to American audiences with the release of his hit single, “Livin’ la Vida Loca.” He will next be seen playing Antonio D’Amico in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story when the series premieres later this year.
Ricky is the father to nine-year-old twin sons, Matteo and Valentino, who were born to a surrogate. We wish the newlyweds and their entire family all the happiness in the world!
