Aww! Ricky Martin is all set to get married for the first time

It’s official! Ricky Martin has revealed he is now engaged to artist Jwan Yosef.

The 44-year-old Livin’ La Vida Loca singer is on his One World tour, but took a short break on Wednesday to appear on the Ellen DeGeneres show and shared the happy news.

It will be a first marriage for both Martin and Jwan after the pair met a year ago.

And apparently it was Ricky who popped the big question!

It was Jwan’s work that he first fell in love with and he added that his two kids – eight-year-old twins Matteo and Valentino – already have a close bond with their stepfather-to-be.

“It’s been just perfect,” he said.
