Congratulations are in order for singer Ricky Martin, who has officially confirmed his marriage to fiancé Jwan Yosef.

"I'm a husband," he exclusively told E! News. "But we're doing a heavy party in a couple of months, I'll let you know."

Despite the fact that the big celebration hasn't happened yet, the pair has already gotten all of the official stuff out of the way to solidify their union. "We exchanged vows, and we've swear [sic] everything, and we've signed all the papers that we needed to sign, prenups and everything," he said.

Martin and Yosef have been together since 2016, and announced their engagement on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in November. "We just got engaged," Martin said during the interview. "I'm sweating!" Though he called the engagement "bad" and admits that he was "nervous" when he proposed, the story is actually pretty adorable. "I just had it in a little velvet pouch and instead of saying, 'Will you marry me?' I said, 'I got you something!' Bad," the The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story star told Ellen.

"Then he was like, 'Yes.' I said, 'I want to spend my life with you,' and he was like, 'What is the question?' 'Would you marry me?' That's it." He described the proposal as "very beautiful," even if it took 30 minutes for him to realize Yosef said yes!

As far as the details of the upcoming celebration go, one thing is for sure: It's going to be a huge party. "It's going to be a big event. I want something massive," Martin previously told E! News, though he admits he finds the planning of the whole thing a bit daunting. "Everybody is talking about the wedding, but nobody is talking about the planning of the wedding because it's so difficult," he said. "I didn't know it was so complicated to put together an event like the one we want."

What, exactly, does Ricky Martin want? "We’ll do the three-day event as I call it. And we still don’t know where we will do it, Los Angeles, Puerto Rico, or in Sweden, where my fiancé is from, or in Spain, where I am also from," Martin told Ocean Drive magazine in September.

The big shebang is reportedly slated for this spring, and safe to say we all want an invite—and for the DJ to play "Livin' La Vida Loca" on repeat.
