Ricky Martin is livin la vida loca!

The Latin super star stopped by Ellen DeGeneres to announce his engagement to his boyfriend fiancé of one year, Jwan Yosef.

“He’s a conceptual artist and I’m a collector,” Martin said of Yosef, 32. “I started looking for art and I saw his art and I went crazy because I really love what he does. Really original. And then I contacted him.”

Martin is a father of 8-year-old twin sons, Valentino and Matteo.

Martin will also be joining Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Celine Dion, Backstreet Boys, Boyz II Men and many more in Las Vegas with his own residency.

“I’m going to be in Vegas,” Martin said of his new show at the revamped theatre inside the Monte Carlo. “I have a residency in Vegas. I’m really happy!”

Justin Timberlake and Adele are also rumored to pick up residencies in the same venue.

“I’m extremely excited to have my residency in Las Vegas; I have been thinking about it for years and to see it become a reality is just an unbelievable feeling. I’ve dedicated my entire life to the stage, and there is nothing I want more than to create the best show of my career and make it an unforgettable experience for each person that comes to see me at the incredible Park Theater at Monte Carlo,” Martin said in a statement.

“Throughout my career, I have been fortunate to be able to share my culture through music while creating an exciting atmosphere where you have no choice but to have the best time, to dance and sing until we all forget our problems, to let go and be completely free…this new show will not be the exception. I’m inspired, and I can’t wait to show you what we have in store,” he added.
