Ricky Martin has responded to Gus Kenworthy's "Missed Connections" ad. 

The freestyle skier and boyfriend Matthew Wilkas shared a Craigslist ad on Instagram this week hoping to reconnect with the 'Fiebre' singer and his husband Jwan Yosef after the four met at the Oscars. 

Thankfully Ricky spotted the post, and the 46-year-old addressed Gus' invitation during an appearance on CBS' The Talk yesterday (March 7).

"This is co cute - and clever," he said. "I mean, he's a national hero. Give me a break!" 

The American Crime Story: Versace star revealed that he and Yosef were "flattered" by the comments, before confirming that the four will definitely connect. With a thumbs up, the singer addressed Kenworthy and added: "I love you, brother." 

Soon after, the 26-year-old Olympian, who described Martin and Yosef as "gorgeous" in the ad, tweeted a link to Martin's interview alongside the caption: "*clears schedule for the rest of the week*". 

Meanwhile, Martin made headlines last month for stating that he hopes his role in Versace will help "normalise" open relationships
