Ricky Martin's Twins: First Pictures!

Ricky Martin's Twins: First Pictures!

Ricky Martin reveals the first photos of his 4-month-old baby twin boys, Valentino and Matteo, in this week’s People and Hola cover. Check out some interview snippets:

On being a hands-on parent: I don’t have a nanny. I’m doing this on my own because I don’t want to miss a moment. I have a personal assistant who helps me, someone who takes care of me while I’m taking care of them, but I’m the one who changes the diapers, the one that feeds them, the one that bathes them, the one that puts them to sleep.

On becoming a parent through surrogacy: Adoption was one option, but it’s complicated and can take a long time. Surrogacy was an intriguing and faster option. I thought, ‘I’m going to jump into this with no fear.’

On getting to know Valentino and Matteo: Valentino loves to sleep. I call him ‘Mr. Peace and Love’ because he’s so chill and serene. Matteo is more alert and active. He was up at 3 a.m. the other night and just hanging!

    Knowing that it was a surrogate gives me visuals of Ricky and a cup! Damn lucky cup…

    I now petition to start a count down until the surrogate resurfaces…

    Michael Jackson 2.0. where is the mother?

  • Caden says

    Gosh they boys are so cute! But they look nothing like him.

  • K

    as I’ve always suspected, RM is a women.

  • Sara

    Cute kids, very brave of him. All the best with the twins whether you do it alone or with a partner later on. If he is gay it is none of our business. As long as he is happy and those kids are happy. So I wish them well.

  • junior

    Cute. I think Ricky will be a great mother!

  • Betina


  • serena

    That aint natural!!

  • China

    q bellos!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dios son igualito al padre jajajaj

  • Jess

    Adorable. I really admire him for wanting to be a parent, whether or not hes married, or with a partner, ect.

    The kids are lucky to have a devoted parent like that. Unlike Katie Holmes and stuff.

  • wow!

    All three are too cute!

    They are adorable !!!!!

  • Nelly_in_SJ

    Congrats to Ricky. But, he should just come out of the closet and live honestly. What straight man makes a decision about adopting two baby twins on his own? What we aren’t hearing is how Ricky’s partner is involved in all this, no doubt he does exist but we can’t know about him. More like Clay Aiken 2.0, but Clay came out.

  • anna1992nna

    He is not gay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    The boys are adorable !!!!…..I’m happy for Ricky…He will make a great father…

  • gay power living


    Despite the fact that he’s not acknowledged his sexuality and everyone kinds of naturally assumes he’s gay, I think he makes an unofficially awesome gay role model.

    He’s a very spiritual and multi-dimensional person. I feel like you could actually have interesting conversations with the man about a lot of different topics. I think he also lives with his heart.

  • Shakira

    Ricky makes a wonderful father. Such love and caring. I am really happy for him and his beautiful family.

  • Bourdieu

    cute boys. and i think it’s time for Ricky to come out.

  • Maria (Shorty)

    Ricky will come out of the closet when he’s doggone ready to and NOT when people think he should. It’s HIS life and HIS decision. This artilce is about his twin boys and I personally think they’re adoreable. Good for Ricky!!!

  • xaye

    Trust me, he’s a closet gay, like Clay Aiken used to be. An ex-music producer of records who used to work for Ricky Martin told me everybody in the music industry are aware Ricky Martin is very gay, and RM is very guarded of his sexuality, doesn’t want to disappoint his female fans.

  • palvasha

  • http://WWW.JUSTJARED.COM london london

    I just want to know, IS HE OR IS HE NOT GAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?



  • Cassie

    Congratulations to Ricky Martin! All fathers should gush about their children this way and, also, change their diapers, et al.

    It doesn’t matter whether he is straight, gay, or celibate as he is a truly a compassionate soul and such a blessing to the Planet with his joyful disposition and gorgeous smile.

    Wish he could find the creativity to make another “La vida Loca”-type album and have the same woman perform with him!

  • Tammy

    Cute kids. Who cares if he’s gay or not. Congrats!

  • jan

    Gorgeous babies. The spitting image of their father, but who is the mother?

  • el fano of ricardo

    who cares if he is gay or whatever..those have to be the most precious little boys…so latin, so regal. you can all ready tell their going to be soccer players…

  • samantha

    why did he have babies this way? Is he gay like Clay Aiken?

  • Nelly_in_SJ

    If homosexuality is brought up, it should be acknowledged. Living honestly benefits everyone. Is “superstar” fame really worth that much? Ricky Martin has power, money, and a following that I think would support him. I think it would be transformative. The Gay community would support him, I think especially the Latino gay community. Things should be shaken up. I’d respect him.


    Ricky Martin será un excelente padre. Sus preferencias sexuales no le deben importar a nadie. Los que hablan constantemente sobre ello deben investigar profundamente sus verdaderas preferencias. Bendiciones para Ricky y sus hermosos hijos.

    He is only selling them pictures to the magazines to get famous again. It’s obvious. It’s time everyone forgot ‘Livin’ Da Vida Loca’ or whatever it’s called… who cares. He should come out of the closet. He is straight-on queer. Like Clay Aiken. Clay is creepy. He has shiny skin and weird facial features…. erhhh!

  • Marcela



    YES he is gay.. Dont have to ask speculate or wonder… What straight Latin man, at his age, that looks like him, with that fame, would need to get a surrogate? Would want a surrogate? It just doesn’t compute

  • Nelly_in_SJ

    Estamos de acuerdo. Si no DEBE importar, pero si importa. Gays no tienen los mismos derechos que tienen los “derechos.” En salir del closet Ricky Martin seria un buen ejemplo para los que no tienen valor de vivir una vida abierta. Ricky tiene fama, dinero, y una vida admirable y por eso seria importante salir del closet y enseñar le hal mundo que un hombre Gay puede darle ha unos niños amor y cariño: lo mas importante para ellos…

  • bless Ricky

    Ricky is a child advocate and has been for many years. He has helped a lot of kids in poor places. He understands about abuse and he’s fighting to end it. Many gay men have the natural instinct and desire to become fathers. They are good people who deserve the opportunity to give love to a child love. There are too many kids w/o parents. More adoptions would help. Ricky is rich and beautiful. His boys will not miss a female influence in their lives. Maybe Martin’s longtime best female friend is helping him raise the boys. Pretty sure there are plenty of relatives around to spread the love.

  • omfg

    IS RM A GAY???

    OMFG! :(

  • alice

    “Adoption was one option, but it’s complicated and can take a long time.”

    Yeah, sex with a woman was never an option for him.

    I don’t think he does any more charity than an average celeb does nowadays, he just talks about it more. Charity does so much good to your public image and that’s what Ricky is all about: a mr. perfect image.
    Some here didn’t know he’s gay? I’m surprised.

  • noodle

    well, maybe he is gay..
    Anyway the babies are adorable!

  • soph-x

    thats jus stupid….there’s no proof he is gay!!!

    some people use surragacy if they cant have children with their partners!

    or if they want to become a parent and havent found the right person to have them with!!

    god sake people grow up!

    Lmao at this farce
