CORAL GABLES (LALATE) – Ricky Martin and Carlos Gonzalez are planning a wedding, boda, after matrimonio reports dominated Latin America noticias this week. Ricky Martin and novio Carlos Gonzalez will have a wedding ceremony in New York in January, Latin American news is reporting today. The reports follow earlier erroneous claims that the couple would marry in Buenos Aires.
Ricky Martin and Carlos Gonzalez dominated Latin American noticias in December with reports of a possible wedding in Buenos Aires. The reports had claimed Martin and his economist boyfriend Carlos González Abella had sought to marry in Buenos Aires. Those later reports were confirmed as false.
December reports later claimed that Martin was anxious to marry this January, but that Martin hadn’t decided on a location. Other reports claimed that Martin’s best man would be Angelo Medina. Another story claimed that a wedding reception would be held in Miami with guests anticipated to be Ednita Nazario, Charly Masso of Menudo, and Ángelo Medina and others from Menudo.
Martin, who turned forty on December 24, has previously told news that he wants same-sex marriage to be legalized in Puerto Rico. “What I want is for them to say no to discrimination so that equality among us human beings may be a reality in my country.”
But with Puerto Rico not possible, El Nuevo Dia is reporting noticias today that the Ricky and Carlos will marry January 28 in New York City. The location in NYC is not revealed.
The date appears to be logical. Martin will debut on Broadway for Evita in March. He will play the role made popular by Antonio Banderas in the film version (opposite Madonna). Martin will play Che in the groundbreaking revival of the Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s musical. Previews for Martin on Broadway start March 2012, the opening is April.
