Ricky Martin officially announces engagement

He had made the announcement on Wednesday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

It's a first for the 44-year-old Puerto Rican pop star - who came out in 2010 - and he proudly showed off his engagement band on the morning programme.

The Grammy winner gushed that he was in love with the Syrian-born, Swedish-raised 32-year-old, whom he met over a year ago through his conceptual paintings.

'I saw his art and I went crazy because I really love what he does. Really original. And I contacted him and then I collected him,' Ricky - born Enrique Morales - told Ellen.
