For the past several weeks Ricky Martin and Jwan Yosef have been turning up on each other's social media pages. On April 15, though, they turned up on a red carpet together, making their first official appearance as a couple.
And, as good as these two look solo, they look even better together.
Ricky, 44, and Jwan, 32, looked incredibly dapper as they attended the amFAR Inspiration Gala in Sao Paolo, Brazil. The couple held hands on the red carpet, leaving little doubt that they are, indeed, a couple.
They also took to their social media accounts to fully embrace their romantic status.
Ricky shared an image of he and his twelve years younger boyfriend clutching hands for photographers.
He captioned the image of he and the Syrian-born artist, by simply saying, "Yup."
Jwan also shared a shot from the couple's first public appearance. "We cleaned up good," he said of the beautiful shot of the duo with their arms around each other's back. "THANK YOU @amfar for an amazing event…"
The couple is certainly happy to officially confirm their relationship rather than letting speculation run rampant.
Prior to their public confirmation, the men first ignited dating rumors by periodically sharing snaps of each other on their social media accounts. In late March, the men were spotted vacationing together in Tokyo. In another snap, Ricky said they had "made it to heaven and back."
Just after that, they were seen together in Malibu, California.
Ricky's love life has been well-chronicled since he came out as gay in 2010. The father of twin sons Matteo and Valentino dated Carlos Gonzalez-Abella from 2011 to 2014. That same year, he was linked to Australian swimmer Ian Thorpe.
In a 2015 interview with PrideSource.com, he said he was ready to find love again.
"To be honest, I love being in a relationship … I love waking up in the morning and, if you're not with your boyfriend, [sending] that first message or text in the morning: 'Hey baby, how ya doing? I hope you're fine. I just woke up. I'm doing this and this and this today.' I love that," he said. "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."
If this is livin' la vida loca, we'll take some!
