Ricky Martin has opened up about the 'grieving process' he is experiencing, as he divorces his husband, Jwan Yosef.

News of their split emerged in July, five years after they tied the knot. They share a four-year-old daughter named Lucia and three-year-old son Renn, while Ricky, 51, parents twin teenagers Matteo and Valentino from his days as a singleton.

Now, Ricky has spoken about his split from Jwan, in a new interview with Spanish magazine Telemundo, as translated by Hola!.

He said: "Jwan and I will always be family."

The Livin' La Vida Loca singer continued: "We have two children that we are going to raise together, and this is not a recent decision. We have been planning this situation for a long time, it’s pre-pandemic.

"We look into each others' eyes and smile, we hug each other, and we go through the ups and downs, we cry together, and we laugh together."

He went on to say that he and Jwan are on "good terms" despite their divorce, as he revealed he and his now-ex-husband never argued in front of their children.

Ricky shared that the couple calmly discussed their divorce "with a good talk" that took place in their bedroom.

He event went as far as to describe his divorce with Jwan as "wonderful" as he joked that they should "write a book about how to get divorced properly".

Ricky is not opposed to finding love again in the future, as he told the publication: "I do see myself in another relationship," admitting he "loves being in love" and likes "a morning kiss, breakfast, and complicity".

The couple's shock split came in July, and in a statement obtained by PEOPLE, the now-exes jointly announced: "We have decided to end our marriage with love, respect and dignity for our children and honouring what we have experienced as a couple all these wonderful years.

"Our greatest desire now is to continue having a healthy family dynamic and a relationship centred on peace and friendship to continue the joint upbringing of our children, preserving the respect and love we have for each other."

Years before the split, Ricky gushed about his partner in an interview with US talkshow host Ellen DeGeneres, as he told her how he and the award-winning Swedish painter got together: "I saw his art and I went crazy because I really love what he does. Really original. And I contacted him and then I collected him."

He also discussed the moment he proposed to Jwan in 2016, a year after meeting, as he admitted that his nerves got the better of him.

Ricky explained: "Instead of saying 'Will you marry me' I said, 'I got you something!'" After a little confusion on Jwan's end about exactly what Ricky was asking, he said yes, and the pair went on to marry in 2018.
