Congratulations are in order for Ricky Martin, and we didn’t even realize it! The actor, who GENERAL HOSPITAL fans fondly remember as hunky musician Miguel Morez, has revealed that he has married his boyfriend, Jwan Yosef! “I’m a husband,” Martin revealed to E! News, “but we’re doing a heavy party in a couple of months. I’ll let you know.”
The couple made quite the dashing pair when they attended the 2018 Golden Globes together. Martin and Yosef began dating in 2016, and in November of that year revealed on THE ELLEN DEGENERES SHOW that they had become engaged. “I just had it in a little velvet pouch,” Marin confessed at the time of the engagement ring, “and instead of saying ‘Will you marry me?’ I said, ‘I got you something!’ Bad.” Thankfully, despite the initial confusion, Yosef said “yes!”
While no formal ceremony has taken place, Martin revealed that he and Yosef have done everything else to make it official. “We exchanged vows,” he confided, “and we’ve swear [sic] everything, and we’ve signed all the papers that we needed to sign, prenups and everything.” Now if only we could score an invite to the reception — we’re sure it’ll be spectacular!

Martin first achieved fame as part of the boyband Menudo when he was 12. In 1994, he joined the cast of GH as Miguel, and became incredibly popular with soap fans for the two years he was on the show. Following that, Martin’s musical career crossed over to American audiences with the release of his hit single, “Livin’ la Vida Loca.” He will next be seen playing Antonio D’Amico in THE ASSASSINATION OF GIANNI VERSACE: AMERICAN CRIME STORY when the series premieres in early 2018.
Martin is the father to nine-year-old twin sons, Matteo and Valentino, who were born to a surrogate. We wish the newlyweds and their entire family all the happiness in the world!
