Ricky Martin is saying adiós to single life. Announcing his engagement on the “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” airing Wednesday, Martin gave up the entire scoop on his love life and his imminent move to Sin City.

Martin met his betrothed, artist Jwan Yosef, more than a year ago, while spying Yosef’s work.

Martin, a father of two, told DeGeneres he saw Yosef’s artwork and “went crazy.” He added, “I love what he does. Really original. And I contacted him.”

Martin says he had no idea what the artist looked like until he met him. And was obviously smitten.

The Latin singer admitted it wasn’t easy asking Yosef to marry him, saying he was “really nervous.”

To further surprise DeGeneres’ audience, the Grammy-winner announced he’ll soon be headlining at the Park Theater in the Monte Carlo in Las Vegas. He then proceeded to invite the television audience to his Vegas show.

DeGeneres announced that “tickets go on sale Monday, and I want all of you to see Ricky’s concert,” the Emmy-winning daytime talk show host said. She gave everyone in the audience two tickets and a two-night stay at the Monte Carlo.

The "Adiós" singer will wrap his One World Tour Dec. 15 at Centro de Congresos Queretaro in Querétaro City, Mexico.
