Ricky Martin and fiance Jwan Yosef are at the beginning stages of their wedding prep, and they’re planning to go big.
By big, we mean that the 45-year-old Latin heartthrob wants to throw lavish “public” ceremony. Guess what? The whole world is invited – well, sort of.
“It’s going to be a great event. And people will be talking about it. We’re a modern family, and I think people need to see, and I want to normalise the beauty of our family. That’s why I’m making it public and I’m going to share my wedding with the world,” Martin, who is the father of twin sons Matteo and Valentino, told Ocean Drive magazine.
The entertainer and Yosef are currently planning their invitations and have not decide a location for their big day yet. “Right now we’re just dealing with the invitations and everything. We also have to deal with the fact that most of my fiancé’s family is from Syria. So maybe they won’t be able to come into this country. So we might consider doing it in Stockholm or in Spain,” the “Livin’ La Vida Loca” hitmaker added.
Although Stockholm and Spain are currently up for consideration, Martin has previously expressed that he wants to tie the knot in his native Puerto Rico. “It’s going to be a big event. I want something massive. I for sure want to get married in Puerto Rico. That is something that has to happen. It’s where I’m from, where my family is from. We’ll see what happens,” he said.
When asked about how he is coping with the wedding plans at the moment, Martin replied, “Everybody is talking about the wedding but nobody is talking about the planning of the wedding because it’s so difficult. I didn’t know it was so complicated to put together an event like the one we want.”
Hopefully everything goes well for the couple. Good luck with the wedding guys ;)
