Ricky Martin Welcomes Twin Boys

Ricky Martin Welcomes Twin Boys

Ricky Martin welcomed twin boys a few weeks ago via a surrogate mother, his rep reveals. The 36-year-old Latin sensation will take a year off to be a full-time dad and raise the twins. Interesante!!!!!

“The children, delivered via gestational surrogacy, are healthy and already under Ricky‘s full-time care,” his rep said in a statement. “Ricky is elated to begin this new chapter in his life as a parent and will be spending the remainder of the year out of the public spotlight in order to spend time with his children.”

Congrats to Ricky and his two new sons!

Earlier this month, American Idol alum Clay Aiken, 29, and music producer pal Jaymes Foster, welcomed a baby boy also through artificial insemination.

It seems artificial insemination is the new “it” thing in Hollywood these days!

    interesting! I don’t know why but I have less problems with lesbians having kids, perhaps because I feel strongly that all babies deserve a mother.

    THIS CONFIRMS THAT HE IS GAY! HE’S NOT FOOLING ANYONE… NO GUY THAT LOOKS AS GOOD AS HIM SHOULD HAVE TO ARTIFICIALLY INSEMEMINATE!!! UNLESS HE’S SCARED OF THE VA JAY JAY! Lol

  • Ely

    This goes to show he’s soooo gay. A man that can have any woman he wants, chooses a surrogate?! Its not like he looks like Michael Jackson or Clay Aiken. Not that there’s anything wrong with it all, but just come out and say it papi =p

  • Aggie

    I never knew what to think about the rumors of his being gay. Mostly I thought it was untrue. Now I know he really is. It’s his private life so I don’t blame him for not being upfront about it, though. The thing is that with this he has just outed himself.

  • Helena

    What?! When did this happen? Haha!

  • Larisa

    Who cares if he is gay or not, this is a beautiful moment in his life and to the Idiot who said she/he preffers seeing lesbians becoming mothers, nice job being a bigot!!!!!!

  • Little Loca

    GAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ugh

  • t

    good for him!

  • Nora

    Congrats!

    But it sounds like ‘traditional’ and not ‘gestational’ surrogacy since he doesn’t have a female partner. Gestational surrogacy is usually for couples who are not conceiving and only need another woman to carry the infant. A traditional surrogate uses her own eggs and carries the baby but may not have a relationship with the father.

  • jenny

    congrats to Ricky
    to all u haters leave him alone!!!!!!!!!
    his life is noooo ones business
    this is about being a father lets grow up
    if we like him and his music cool
    other than that lets wish him well
    BACK OFF!!!!!!!!!

  • heyU

    So, this basically confirms he’s gay. Nice. I guess he’s in relationship with that hot guy from those beach pictures we saw last year.

  • kim

    I don’t hate him but he is gay, I think that much has been known for about ten years now. Congrats on the babies!

  • Ricky is hot

    Why no adoption ?

  • OH SNAP!

    CONGRATS GAY AKIEN, BUT I STILL LOVE HIM ANYWAYS BUT NOT AS MUCH AS ENRIQUE IGELESIS ;)

  • Deb

    Who cares if he is gay or not, that is his business. Way to go Ricky!!

  • creeped out

    Thats just weird the poor kids they have a gay daddy & no mamma

  • Happy for Ricky

    The babies will have a wonderful father. Ricky Martin really has a deep love and sensitivity for children. He has been working tirelessly behind the scenes for years to eradicate child abuse in different countries. He’s like Angelina Jolie in that he has such a heart for kids who don’t have a family. I remember him talking about having children a few years back. It’s the one thing he dreamt of passionately. I’m so happy he has finally gotten his family.

  • Betty

    He is a SICK GAY!!!

  • Mully

    He looks terrible. He was so cute! What happened? Ricky, time to come out of the gay closet!

  • Mully

  • ricky fan

    Congrats to Ricky! I’m so happy for him! He’ll make a great dad!

  • Jill

    Being gay doesn’t make anyone unqualified to be a good parent. Congratulations to Ricky and his new sons.

    (What’s up with all these twins being born lately? Is it something in the water?)

  • Shannon M.

    Ricky Martin is so GAY!!!! Like everyone has said on here that he is a good looking guy and could get any girl but to have a surrogate just proves that he is gay. All the signs are there. I mean I have nothing against gay people but he just seems to be ashamed to admit it.

  • meme

    OMG 1st thing i did when reading this was raise my eyebrow and say “wow, so he is oficially out the closet!”

  • Jess

    Can’t wait to hear their names!

    Who cares if he’s gay or not. Get over it.

  • Mully

    Gay men should NOT be allowed to have children!

  • Really so?

    He is gay? Since when ? I have never heard of that. Men I am so out of touch..lol
    Too bad he is a good looking guy.

  • LOL

    awwwww lol Congrats to Ricky but that is VERY GAY

  • cain

    so he’s officially gay now *cough*

  • Gaydar

    He is gay. Now it cannot be disputed.

    he is a parent now. Good for him. Good for the kids. I hope he becomes a great father, better than what he knows he can be. I hope his kids appreciate him. What can I say? I am not gayphobic. I just think if they are gay, then say, (Clay Aiken, maybe Kenny Chesney and others). It is not a big deal. This is not 1955.

    @mully

    I would rather say moronic men or women should NOT be allowed to have children!

    btw. you suffer from the worst diease at all: shit for brains

  • monica

    I personally don’t think that he is gay, I know for a fact that years ago he said that he had his heart broken when he had been in a relationship for years and he went on tour to promote an album and found out that while she was living in his house she had been cheating on him. I think it may make it hard for him to trust people as well as know what there true intentions are when you meet them.
    I have know problem with him wanting to be a single father I think that we all should congratulate him on making the decision to be that. And knowing and understanding that decision even when he has said in previous interviews that he would like to have a family. If they are with someone special that would be great if not, he would’ve love to have adopted some kids. But we all know how the system is with single men adopting kids society has this notion of it will be part of child trafficing. Congratulations! Ricky

  • bazala

    At least he didnt make a show of a fake marriage. AT least he didnt take a woman for a ride.

  • joneblaze

    artificial insemination is the new “it” thing in Hollywood especially when you’re into guys and the sight of a woman makes you ill

  • ****

    @Kelly

    Jesus bitch, go back to school instead of worrying about “the world we live in”. What? You want to live in the 50s where women were treated like cattle and minorities like dogs? You’ve been raise with this idealised image of what the past was, but let me tell you that any “sick perversion” you think the modern age is afflicted with, was happening back then in the good old days too, people just didn’t talk about.

    Congratulation to Ricky and Clay and Michael Jackson and all the other gays who want to play house. If single-mothers can do it why can’t you?

  • chick

    “Who cares if he’s gay or not. Get over it.”

    If nobody cares why doesn’t he COME OUT OF THE CLOSET then.
    It’s about the time, but he doesn’t have the guts. What a pathetic closet case.

    Omg, the most delusional fan girl ever, lol. Do people like this really exist, is this for real or trolling. She is worse than claymates in denial.

  • XD

    gosh i so wanna have twin boys !! :D ……i think people should mind their own f.u.c.k.i.n’ business ! damn, give him a break….it’s his life, not yours………i don’t blame him for being gay or wanting to have kids..congrats to him. i hope he’ll be out of spotlight for real, not like others who affirmed they’d take a year off to raise their twins, and just some months after they’re boasting out there [ not pointing out mrs Jennifer Lopez in particular at all! :p ]….. good luck…

    ps: what happened to him? i never really found ricky that “hot” but he was kinda cute and in that pic he’s eww!

  • gross

    poor kids, he will insist on sleeping with them all their life. You know he will touch them ewwwwwwwwwwwwww
    gay men should not be allowed to have kids, they will turn them into freaks, they are pedophiles they are sick sick sick

  • abc
