Ricky Martin’s new lover
Ricky Martin is finally making it public as he has confirmed over Instagram he is dating Jwan Yosef.
The ‘Livin’ la Vida Loca’ hitmaker – who is father to seven-year-old twins Matteo and Valentino, who were born via surrogate – made his red carpet debut with the 32-year-old hunk at the amFAR Inspiration Gala in Sao Paolo, Brazil on Friday (04.15.16).
Alongside a picture of the pair on the red carpet posted to Instagram, Ricky, 44, simply wrote: “Yup”.
And Jwan, who is originally from Syria but works as a painter in London, also shared a cute photo of the pair holding hands.
He captioned it: “We cleaned up good.”
The ‘She Bangs’ star – who came out as gay in 2010 – sparked rumors he was seeing Jwan by constantly posting pictures with him on his social media accounts, but this is the first time they’ve been seen in public together.
Ricky was previously in a three-year relationship with Carlos Gonzalez Abella from 2011 until January 2014..
Last year the Puerto Rican singer said he was ready to find love again.
At the time, he said: “To be honest, I love being in a relationship. I really do and I love picking up my phone and waiting for that reply from that text – It’s great … I love being in love.”
