Ricky Martin and husband Jwan Yosef may have exchanged their vows in private, but the couple plans to have a “three-day party” to celebrate their nuptials with family and friends later this year.
“I’m very happy, very happy,” Martin, 46, said on a recent episode of Live With Kelly and Ryan of finally being able to go public with the couple’s wedded status. “But I’m like, where’s my wedding? I want a three-day party.”
Martin revealed to E! News last week that he and Yosef, 33, are already husbands after more than a year of being engaged. “I’m a husband, but we’re doing a heavy party in a couple of months,” the singer said. “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.”
The singer admitted Tuesday that “wedding planning is crazy,” but promised the talk show hosts that he would love to have them there at a proper fete for their union.
“I would like to have an important celebration,” he said. “I think it would be beautiful to bring our friends and family together. It’s a modern family being together, it’s crazy! Let’s make it loud for everyone to hear and see that this is beautiful. And love is love and love is normal.”
Martin’s 9-year-old twin sons, Matteo and Valentino, will likely have some opinions to offer up when the big day does arrive, the singer added.
“I’m sure they’ll have a say, because they do have a say in everything in our lives,” he joked. “Even when I’m onstage. They’ll say, ‘Dad, last night was better. Tonight was [so-so].’”
Martin and Yosef first began dating in 2016, and the Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story star revealed to Ellen DeGeneres in November 2016 that he was the one who popped the question—awkwardly, at first.
“I was really nervous,” Martin said of the run-up to the proposal. “But 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!’”
When he finally got around to telling Yosef he wanted to spend the rest of their lives together, Yosef replied, “What is the question?” to which Martin finally asked, “Will you marry me?”
