Pop star and absurdly beautiful human Ricky Martin is engaged, and not to me. And I'm sorry to say, probably not to you either. The 44-year-old singer appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday, where he revealed that he had proposed to his boyfriend of more than a year, artist Jwan Yosef, People reports.

He said yes.

“We just got engaged,” gushed the Latin heartthrob (I don't throw around the word "heartthrob" but c'mon) to Ellen. “I proposed. 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.”


The singer, who is the father of 8-year-old twin sons, opted for a less traditional proposal. “Instead of saying, ‘Will you marry me?’ I said, ‘I got you something,’" Martin said. "I said, ‘I want to spend my life with you.’ And he was like, ‘What is the question?’ [I said] ‘Would you marry me?'”

So what do we know about the man who gets to marry Ricky Martin? Well for one, he looks like this:

As if that's not enough to make him Ricky Martin marriage material, the 31-year-old is also a talented artist. Some people are just mega-blessed I guess. “He’s a conceptual artist, and I’m a collector," said Martin of his beau. "So I started looking for art and I saw his art and I went crazy because I love what he does, really original, and I contacted him — and then I collected him."


I hope these two have a long and happy marriage and that they share many, many photos of themselves on the internet 'till death do us part.
