Ricky Martin is engaged to his boyfriend Jwan Yosef! The singer told Ellen Degeneres all about his fiancé on a segment of The Ellen Show last night. Of course, Ellen wasted no time in bombarding Ricky with questions like "who is he?" and "where does he live?" and "how did you meet?"

"Well, now he lives with me. He's a conceptual artist and I'm a collector," Ricky said. "I started looking for art and I saw his art and I went crazy because I really love what he does. Really original. And I contacted him."

The couple had been dating for over a year and it was Ricky who popped the big question.

"I was really nervous. I got on my knees and I took out the little metal box," he said. "I just had it in a little velvet pouch and instead of saying, 'Will you marry me?' I said, 'I got you something!' And then, he was like 'Yes!' and 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."

Although it took 30 minutes for Ricky to realise that Jwan had agreed to marry him, he described his proposal to be "very beautiful". The 44-year-old singer doesn't even have to worry about his twin boys Matteo and Valentino getting along with his fiancé. "They love each other. It's perfect Ellen," he said. "It's been really special."

Aww. Congratulations, Ricky and Jwan!
