Ricky Martin's life is very, very loca at the moment. Not only did the singer announce his Las Vegas residency, but he announced that he's engaged! Martin spilled the details to Ellen DeGeneres on Wednesday, revealing how he got to know his fiance, Jwan Yosef.

"He's a conceptual artist, and I'm a collector. I started looking for art, and I saw his art and I went crazy because I really love what he does. Really original," Martin said. "And then I contacted him."

"And then you collected him," DeGeneres joked.

The actual proposal story is pretty cute, given that he flubbed his delivery.

"I got on my knees, and I took out the little metal box," he said. "I just had it in a little velvet pouch, and instead of saying, 'Will you marry me?' I said, 'I got you something!' Bad. 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."

As for the residency, Martin will be headlining the Park Theater at Monte Carlo. The dates have not been revealed yet, but tickets go on sale Monday.

Martin is currently on his One World Tour and will wrap things up on Dec. 15 in Mexico.

Many congrats to Ricky Martin!
