He added, "It feels amazing! I can't introduce him as my fiancé. I can't. He's my husband. He's my man."
The Assassination of Gianni Versace star, who is father to 9-year-old twin boys Matteo and Valentino, noted that he and Yosef are planning a huge party to celebrate their big day. He described the event as "the typical three-day party, the dinner, the rehearsal, the party and the recovery," telling Marfuggi, "You'll be the first to know."
Martin previously announced that he and Yosef were engaged during an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in November 2016.Former Motorhead guitarist 'Fast' Eddie Clarke passes away at 67
"I was really nervous," Martin said, recalling the proposal, "but I got on my knees, and I took out the little metal 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?' [I said] 'Would you marry me?' That's it."
Martin later announced that their wedding would be a major affair, as previously reported by Nicki Swift.
"It's going to be a big event. I want something massive," Martin said in June 2017. "I for sure want to get married in Puerto Rico. That is something that has to happen."Glee star Mark Salling pleads guilty in court
He continued, "It's where I'm from, where my family is from. He's from Sweden and some of his relatives are from Syria so we're going to do something international. We'll see what happens."
