Ricky Martin officially married his partner Jwan Yosef last week and says it was thrilling in all meanings of this word. The wedding was kept totally secret from the public, only being revealed when a reporter asked Martin on the red carpet for The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. The ceremony was private and Martin says that he was really afraid making such a step. But proposing was also a nervous thing. “I got on my knees, took out the little metal box—I just had it in a little velvet pouch—but, instead of saying ‘Would you marry me?’ I said, ‘I got you something!’ 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,” he blushed, opening up to Ellen DeGeneres. But the point is that the answer was ‘yes’, and they are now a family. They are going to celebrate it with a big media-inclusive party in a couple of months.
