For someone as world-famous as Ricky Martin, you would think along with the money, the bright lights of fame and the well-to-do social circles would come more extravagant ways of meeting a future partner.
But for the single father-of-two, his chance meeting with now fiance Jwan Yosef came via a very modern, yet very down-to-earth, setting.
Instagram, of course.
“I met my fiancé on Instagram. I am an art collector and he’s an artist. I’m scrolling and I see this beautiful piece of art … I wrote to him,” Ricky told radio host Andy Cohen.
“And we were talking for, like, six months without me hearing his voice. We talked about art, nothing sexy. He used to live in London. I went to London and I met him.”

“I got on my knees…and I had [the ring] in a little velvet pouch. Instead of saying, ‘Will you marry me?’ I said, ‘I got you something!’
