Ricky Martin Proposed to His Boyfriend in the Most Awkward Way Possible


You’d think that Ricky Martin, the sensual singer who brought us the timeless tune “Living the Vida Loca,” would be a smooth man. Turns out, not so much. After announcing that he was now engaged to long-time boyfriend Jwan Yosef on Ellen, he explained how he awkwardly proposed.

“I was really nervous,” said Martin, “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!’ Bad,” Ricky recalls. “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.”
