The 46-year-old singer made the revelation on the red carpet of his new TV show, ‘American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace’.

Speaking to E! News, Ricky said: “It feels amazing! I can’t introduce him as my fiancé. I can’t. He’s my husband. He’s my man.”

After the low-key nuptials, Ricky also added that he plans to throw a “huge party” to celebrate the news, joking with the presenter: “The typical three-day party, the dinner, the rehearsal, the party and the recovery.

“You’ll be the first to know.”

Ricky and Jwan first started dating in 2016, getting engaged in November of that year after Ricky proposed.

The pair are currently based in London, raising Ricky’s nine-year-old twins, Matteo and Valentino, together.

Ricky regularly appears in magazines and on red carpets with Jwan, previously explaining to Out magazine that he lives his family life in the spotlight in a bid to normalise same-sex relationships.

He said at the time: “I want people to look at me and see a family and say, ‘There’s nothing wrong with that.’ It’s part of my mission.

“It’s part of my kids’ mission as well. My kids ask me about having two daddies and I tell them we are a part of a modern family.

“This is a beautiful sense of freedom.”
