The 'Livin' La Vida Loca' hitmaker shared how he was stunned by the artistic work of Jwan Yosef. Martin while in interview said;
“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,”
The 45 years old further added,
“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.”
The two have been dating for more than a year, and they recently got engaged, after Martin announced their engagement last November.
While making his appearance on ‘The Ellen Show’ in November 2016, 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,”
Well! Martin was the one who popped the question. That’s romantic.

Further, he added,
“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?”
The father of twin sons while talking to Cohen didn’t mention, he has “no idea” when the ceremony will take place, he noted that the wedding would be ‘big.' For that he proclaimed,
“I’m gonna make a lot of noise. Three-day wedding. Let’s have fun.”
Martin and his partner give us relationship goals. On that very topic, while talking with People, he made similar statement about his marriage, in which he mentioned,
“This [wedding] is going to be Middle Eastern and Latin crazy all at once. It’s going to be one loud wedding!”
Martin came out as a gay in 2010 and in the same year, he started to date the stock broker, Carlos Gonzalez Abella. But they parted ways after three years of dating. Ricky also became a father to twins; Valentino Martin and Matteo Martin via a surrogate in 2008.
As of now, he is happily engaged to Jwan Yosef, and we can’t wait to see the two getting married.#Jwan Yosef #Puerto Rican singer #Carlos Gonzalez Abella
