Newlyweds Ricky Martin and Jwan Yosef are showing off their beautiful new LA home in an Architectural Digest cover story
“We were considering living in London or New York City, but then we decided to rent in Los Angeles for a month, to get a feel for the vibe,” Jwan tells the magazine. “L.A. totally caught us off guard—we loved it. By the end of the month, we knew we wanted to be here.”
After a three-day house-hunting expedition, Ricky and Jwan settled on a serene, modernist residence. At the core of the 11,000-square-foot dwelling was a 3,000-square-foot home designed by acclaimed midcentury architect Gregory Ain for psychiatrist Fred Feldman and his wife, Elaine, in 1953.
“Even though the house had been greatly expanded over the years, we still wanted to respect its original vision—the clean lines, the openness, and the sense of calm,” says Ricky, who hired celebrity designer Nate Berkus for the interior design work.

Last week, Ricky dropped the shocking news that he and Jwan had already tied the knot.
“I’m a husband, but we’re doing a heavy party in a couple of months, I’ll let you know,” the actor told E! News.
In December 2017, Ricky celebrated his 46th birthday on Christmas Eve and did it in the best possible way
He spent the day lounging in a tiny white speedo under the Puerto Rican sun alongside his husband, Jwan Yosef.
Ricky has announced new dates for his residency All In at Park Theater at Monte Carlo Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. He extended the show for twelve more dates, which will start on March 15 until June 3.
For each ticket sold, Ricky will donate a dollar to the Ricky Martin Foundation, which has provided constant help to Puerto Rico after the damage caused by Hurricane Maria as well as denouncing human trafficking.
About Ricky Martin
Ricky Martin was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico on 12/24/1971. He is engaged to Jwan Yosef, a Syrian-born Swedish painter and artist.
What is he famous for?
Ricky Martin (Enrique Martín Morales) is an author, singer and dancer. He began his career at age 12 with the all-boy pop group Menudo.
Ricky released several albums in Spanish before his career really took off in 1999 when he performed “The Cup of Life” at the Grammy Awards show.
That performance, and the following hit “Livin’ la Vida Loca”, gave Ricky enormous success worldwide and began the Latin pop explosion of 1999.
This paved the way for other Spanish-speaking artists to move into the English-speaking market..
Is Ricky Martin gay?
Yes, Ricky Martin came out as gay in March, 2010. He came out of the closet in a post on his official website.
In a lengthy note to his fans, Ricky wrote that the process of writing his memoirs got him “very close to my truth” and that hiding his sexuality would “indirectly diminish the glow that my kids were born with,” referring to his twin sons, who were born in 2008.
“These years in silence and reflection made me stronger and reminded me that acceptance has to come from within and that this kind of truth gives me the power to conquer emotions I didn’t even know existed,” he writes about why he didn’t reveal his sexuality earlier.
