    Ricky Martin married his Syrian fiancé

    Martin’s new husband was born in Syria, to a Kurdish father and an Armenian mother.
    Ricky Martin and his fiancé Jwan Yosef have officially tied the knot!
    “I’m a husband, but we’re doing a heavy party in a couple of months,” the Puerto Rican pop star, 46, told E! News on Wednesday.
    “We exchanged vows, and we’ve swear [sic] everything, and we’ve signed all the papers that we needed to sign, prenups and everything … It feels amazing! I can’t introduce him as my fiancé. I can’t. He’s my husband. He’s my man.”
    Martin met his Syrian-Swedish artist husband, 33, through Instagram, and they began officially dating in 2016, according to People. In November of 2016, Martin revealed he had proposed to Yosef on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, a popular American daytime talk-show.
    “We just got engaged,” the renowned internationally singer said at the time. 
    “I’m sweating!”
    Telling the romantic engagement story, Martin explained: “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.”
    Martin has previously said that he and Yosef would hold a large Middle Eastern and Latin American infused wedding party. 
    As of yet, the couple hasn’t hosted such an event, but Martin promised it’s still in the works.
    Describing his relationship with Yosef, Martin said: “It’s one of those things when you have very beautiful moments, magical moments, magical conversations and beautiful experiences and all this time, you’re thinking, maybe it’s here.”
    “Then you just go for it and allow yourself to feel … I’m very certain about what’s happening. I’m a hopeless romantic,” he added.
