Ricky Martin, Aretha Franklin are both getting married this year




tbd-rickymartin010312.jpgA couple singers planned to get married soon, with Aretha Franklin and Ricky Martin both announcing their intentions to have weddings this year. Our calendars are already filling up fast!

El Nuevo Dia newspaper said Martin will marry his boyfriend Carlos Gonzalez on Jan. 28 in New York. He turned 40 on Dec. 24, so that probably helped him decide to step on the gas already. Franklin, meanwhile, is marrying her longtime friend William "Willie" Wilkerson, to whom she got engaged over the holidays. They're thinking of a summer wedding in Miami Beach, which proves they don't know anything about Florida summers.

While this will be Martin's first marriage, it will be Aretha's third attempt at entering the sanctity of holy matrimony. So see, you get a couple freebies, Ricky.
