rickymartinnoviomaridoRicky Martin is engaged!!

The Puerto Rican star was on Ellen DeGeneres‘s show and revealed that he and Jwan Yosef are set to be married – this after more than a year of dating.

“He’s a conceptual artist and I’m a collector. I started looking for art and I saw his art and I went crazy because I really love what he does. Really original,” Ricky gushed. “And then I contacted him.”

“And then you collected him,” Ellen joked.

“We just got engaged,” Martin announced. “I’m sweating!”

Ricky said he was nervous when he proposed. “I got on my knees and I took out the little metal box. I just had it in a little velvet pouch and instead of saying, ‘Will you marry me?’ I said, ‘I got you something!’ Bad,” the singer said. “Then he was like, ‘Yes.’ I said, ‘I want to spend my life with you,’ and he was like, ‘What is the question?’ ‘Would you marry me?’ That’s it.”

Ricky described the proposal as “very beautiful,” even if it took 30 minutes for him to realize Jwan said “yes.”

Congrats!!
