Ricky Martin reveals he married fiancé Jwan Yosef

Ricky Martin is a married man.

The “Livin’ la Vida Loca” singer, 46, revealed that he and fiancé Jwan Yosef secretly tied the knot — though they’re still gearing up for a big celebration.

“I’m a husband, but we’re doing a heavy party in a couple of months,” he told E! News. “We’ve exchanged vows, and we’ve swear (sic) everything, and we’ve signed all the papers that we needed to sign, prenups and everything.”

Martin and Yosef, a Syrian-born Swedish artist, started dating in 2016 and were engaged that November.

The singer/actor relayed his sweet proposal story to Ellen DeGeneres, explaining that instead of saying “Will you marry me?” he blurted out, “I got you something!” to Yosef.

The happy couple first met on Instagram when Martin stumbled upon photos of Yosef’s art, striking up a conversation that lasted six months before they finally met in person in London.

“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 all of a sudden I’m like, ‘Ooh, ooh.’ And then I wrote to him,” he recalled last year.

Martin has 9-year-old twin boys, but said Sunday that he can’t wait to expand his family with Yosef, 33.

“I would love to have a big family. Yes, I do want a big family, but there’s a lot going on at the moment with a lot of work, wedding, it’s a lot going on. So we’re going to put things in order first and then we’re going to get ready for many more kids,” he told E! News.

“My kids ask me about having two daddies and I tell them we are a part of a modern family. This is a beautiful sense of freedom,” he added to Out magazine.

Next up, Martin will play Antonio D’Amico, the former lover of the late Gianni Versace, in “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.”
