The Grammy winner gushed that he was in love with Jwan Yosef, the Syrian-born, Swedish-raised 32-year-old, whom he met over a year ago through his conceptual paintings."I proposed," Ricky beamed to the talk show favorite. "I was really nervous, but I got on my knees and I took out the little, not a box, I just had it in a little velvet pouch and instead of saying 'would you marry me' I said, 'I got you something!' Bad. And 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!” "Yeah we love each other, it's been perfect Ellen. It's been really special," he gushed. News of his engagement wasn't the only exciting thing Ricky had to share with his fans; the 44-year-old singer also announced that he will be starting a Las Vegas residency.
