It’s been just over a year since Ricky Martin announced his engagement, but wedding updates have been few and far between. So, as he takes the stage at Sunday night’s 2018 Golden Globes, you may find yourself wondering: Is Ricky Martin married? Is he still in the throes of planning? Or has yet another celebrity couple succumbed to the fates of Hollywood?
Fortunately for fans, Martin is still happily betrothed to partner Jwan Yosef, a Syrian-Swedish artist who he began dating in 2016. Martin announced their engagement while on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last November, explaining that they’d met because he’s an art collector and fell in love with Yosef’s work — and then, he fell in love with Yosef. He also said he was very nervous to propose, and that it took him 30 minutes to realize Yosef had said yes. As he told DeGeneres:
So while Martin isn’t married yet, he’s definitely working on it, and when the time does come, he’ll let fans know. “People will be talking about it,” he told Entertainment Tonight in September. We’re a modern family, and I think people need to see, and I want to normalize the beauty of our family. That’s why I’m making it public and I am going to share my wedding with the world.”
For now, though, he seems perfectly content with his growing family, and it doesn’t need to be official on paper in order to feel complete. His personal life has been tabloid fodder for decades, and after being pressured to come out for years, it’s nice that now, he can just be.
