Ricky Martin wants more kids
Twelve years ago, Ricky Martin had twins thanks to a surrogate mother. Ten years later, she and her husband added two more children to their family. But apparently this is not enough for the singer. He dreams of a real extended family.
In 2008, Ricky Martin became the father of now twelve-year-old twins Valentino and Matteo with the help of a surrogate mother. Along with her husband Jwan Yosef, with whom she has been married since 2017, the Puerto Rican singer has added daughter Lucia, who was born in 2018, and their son Ren, who was born the following year, to the family. . The couple wants more children, as Martin has now revealed in an interview with the American magazine “People”.
“Yes, we want more. The embryos are frozen,” explains the 49-year-old singer. He remembers Sunday at the home of his grandparents, who gathered their 34 grandchildren around him. “I always said, ‘One day I want to open the door to my house and see a lot of kids running up to me, ‘Papa, papa, papa!’ That’s what I’ve always dreamed of,” Martin says. Nowadays he hides nothing and therefore assures that the couple is currently “not pregnant”. “At the moment we have enough to do with a pair of twins and two babies who are only nine months apart.”
“Oh my god, I’ll marry her”
In the interview, Ricky Martin also spoke about her younger husband of twelve years, whom she said she met five years ago via Instagram. The singer and Swedish painter initially exchanged ideas about art, but six months later they met in person for the first time in a London hotel. “I looked at her and said: ‘Oh my god, I’m going to marry her'”, Martin looks back.
The engagement took place a year later at the same place. “He’s the most romantic man I’ve ever met,” reveals Martin. “He complains that I never sing for him. But he’s a good dancer. I call him Shakira!” Makes fun of singer and actor.
