Ricky Martin: I Cried Tears of Joy!

Ricky Martin: I Cried Tears of Joy!

Ricky Martin steps out for a rare appearance in public as he braves the sub-freezing temperatures in New York to grab a cup of coffee on Friday.

Perhaps his twins are keeping him up at night? His twins boys, Valentino and Matteo, are now 5-months old!

About his experience with parenthood, he said, “I was involved from day one in the pregnancy and I was there when my sons were born. It was beautiful. There were tears of joy and it was really fascinating. I was sweating the first time I held them because I was so nervous!”

10+ pictures inside of Ricky Martin and his tears of joy…

    Why doesn’t he just come out of the closet already?

    If Clay Aiken can, then so can he.

    Paying women to have your babies, Ricky, come on.

  • Raichill

    He looks bloated. He needs to stop smoking so he will be a healthy father.

  • lakers fan in boston

    what happened to this guy’s career
    he just disappeared 0.0
    he looks really old as well

  • Juanick

    I ♥ this man… i really do BUT he looks ugly and fat…to bad

  • Me!

    Very surprised to see him with a cigarette! That has to be the nastiest of all habits.
    So much for being a responsible parent.

  • Mia

    Yeah, I’m kind of mad that he smokes. He seems like a guy who takes good care of himself, hope he quits. Brad Pitt quit smoking recently for his family, maybe Ricky Martin can do the same thing too. I’m glad he/his sons are happy and healthy though.

  • Emily

    HE IS A SELFISH MAN WHO FORGETS THAT CHILDREN ALSO NEED A MOTHER!

  • dianel

    Sounds like he will be a good father hope he stops smokeing though

  • Karin

    I like it that Ricky dares to show the world that he is actually getting one year older each year! He still looks better than most men anyway.

    Emily: In an ideal world all children would have two parents, I grew up in a one parent family and have done very well for myself. It only takes more energy and focus from the one existing parent and in Ricky’s case there is plenty of both to go around for both Matteo and Valentino.

    As for Ricky’s career, I am looking forward to the new album due late this year or early next year. Besides it’s not as if he’s been sitting around doing nothing when he isn’t touring. He has his foundation that helps many children around the world and is in the forefront of the struggle to eradicate trafficking in children.

  • http://foundationneeded.blogspot.com janice

    god bless him we as mothers know how difficult it is to take care of one baby and he is doing all this alone, takes a lot and it is so nice to see a gentleman do this all alone, congrats to Rickey for being a great dad…………

  • Samantha

    He looks great! If you guys were fans you would know his career is still strong, just on hold so he can raise his darling boys.

    It’s really no ones business about the smoking or his parenting.

    I’d rather have one loving parent raising me than 2 parents who are never around with nannies raising me.

  • Jake

    Why do most gay guys smoke. Its disgusting habit. There is nothing positive or worth using a cancer stick.

  • Ericka

    I don’t think he’s fat…it’s the jacket and layers he’s wearing because it’s cold. He’s probably gained weight since the birth of his kids but I don’t think he’d ever get fat…he’s too into health and exercise to let himself completely go.

    Damn it must be cold…that close up of his face…his skin color is crazy from the chill.

  • Ericka

    he does however need to stop smoking. it’s gross.

  • vionette

    I love her. Everybody talks always the same @##$ about if he is gay or not, who cares? If she smoke, who cares? He is doing an amazing work with the foundation about kids and nobody talk about this!!!

  • Corey 2 cool

    He has baby fat, I mean i doubt he does anything but take care of his babies. Twin for two parents are a lot, one baby is a lot for two parents so twin with one parent i doubt this guys get any sleep but as long as he is happy and the babies are happy I am all for it.

    I dont really care if he is gay or not It has nothing to do with who he is as a person. People who want to know mostly want to know to put him down and hate on him. I don’t see why any one has to come out, why can’t just live their lives and be who they are. Straight stars dont have to come out. He might be straight but because he is so hot and has kids with out a woman he is gay.

    How many women star adopt or have kids without a man. My bother is a single father of a 9yo girl. He been raising her alone since she was 2 month and he was 19 and he the best parent I know, better then all the moms and dads i know. He is the perfect father and mother although he kinda nerves about the teenage years, I can’t wait to watch him try to buy training bra.
    Men make really good single parents if they are given the chance.

  • http://pittwatch.com Sherry

    I don’t know what everyone else is looking at, but I think Ricky still looks hot.

  • yo

    he needs to stop smoking! hope he doesnt do that around the kids! he is gonna teach them bad habits!

  • OpsSS!!!!

    IS RICKY REALLY GAY???

  • hu

    to corey:
    im sure the only reason why he is taking care of that kid is because he knocked up some poor girl and he was stupid and irresponsible

  • hennypenny

    He didnt knock up a girl..he hired a surrogate! He is sooo gay. Its sad that he wont come out already. Be proud of who you are. That is the best gift he can give his kids. Better be open about it now than live a lie and they find out later.

  • Deb

    2nd hand smoke is gonna kill your kids, STOP!

  • sheryl

    What ‘s with the obsession about wanting him to come out of the “closet”? It’s obvious he’s gay, and so perhaps he’s just one of those celebs that thinks his private life is private and nobody’s business….just like many hetero celebs. Some celebs think everybody wants to know their business and do not hesitate to share it….but just because they’re celebs doesn’t put them under any obligation to us. I don’t think he’s exactly hiding anything or trying to make people think he’s dating a woman, and maybe he just feels his private life is nobody’s business, like many hetero celebs think as well…and really, it’s not. Quit making it like it’s some big special secret that must be announced to the world. Not everybody thinks it’s such a big deal….really. Do hetero celebs have to “come out” and announce they’re hetero? That would seem kinda ridiculous, wouldn’t it?

  • confused

    I apologise in advance for my ignorance….but what exactly is a surrogate mother in this case?
    Is Ricky the biolgical father? Was it Ricky’s sperm and her eggs done with IVF?
    Or is it another guy’s sperm but done the natural way and Ricky is the adopted father?

  • http://www.davidcooknews.com DAVID COOK

    SWEET JESUS! what happened to this guy? he used to be this so-called hunk being worshipped by girls and now she looks like a sad and fat old man wandering in the streets ahahahah! shake your bon bon old man! :)

  • isabel

    GUAPOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

  • ellie

    Ricky your such a nice & decent man I bet you cried seeing your babies and there adorable..

  • http://www.maxgxl.com/20383 Amy in Ontario

    you guys are retarded. he’s OUTSIDE SMOKING do you see his kids? no! who gives a shit what he does when he’s not around his kids.
    Not ALL smokers smoke around their kids. Shit half the smokers I know don’t even smoke at home outside. only on work breaks.
    how old are some of you 15? not too smart

  • http://www.vectormotors.com gerard Vandenberg

    WE ARE EXPECTED TO CRY NOW, folks?
    ……………………….why not?

  • Meg

    Ew, even if he doesn’t smoke around his kids, he still smokes and he will smell like smoke. Plus, smokers are really stupid, self-centerd people who are addicted to a legal drug and don’t give a damn about the fact that they are harming/killing innocent people who have to breath in their toxic air. Nothing is cute or sweet about that. period.

  • dakila

    Okay, Ricky you have my support. Brad and Angie are on top of my list, but you come on top 20. :)

    Viva Riqueta!!! :D

  • mrs martin

    My Man is looking fantastic …
    im soo happy to see him out and about …
    to the peeps saying he needs to “Come Out” and you think he gay
    keep ya stupid crap to your self … dont need to read ya crap …
    he not GAY … he smart man … and ya jelious and nothing more ..
    he not fat or bloated either … he just fine thank you …
    much peace mrs martin .. (The One & Only)

  • http://www.rickymartinfoundation.org Rickyfanforlife

    Gay? Not! Fat? Not! He’s just snug as a bug for the cold :D Gorgeous?…hell yeah! Sexy as….with a great brain too!
    Here is a good man out shopping for his babies…his free time…pictures being taken without permission and yet, after not looking too happy at first (and I don’t blame him) he takes time to acknowledge the photographers with an “I see you” look and even smiles! Geez…most celebrities would be throwing punches! As for smoking…a lot of people do and it’s not an easy habit to break.
    For those who are unaware, Ricky’s career is going as well as ever…his last tour was fantastic! As for his children…they were wanted, are well cared for, very much loved and all his…nobody can file for custody of those babies or half of Ricky’s money! ( Egg donor+Ricky’s sperm~IVF-gestational surrogacy -the woman who gave birth is no relation to the babies.)
    Ricky is a wonderful person and an amazing father. Some of the comments here are so negative. His personal life is his business and Ricky is achieving so much in helping to stop child trafficking. God bless you Ricky…you’re amazing and I love you :D
    “Human trafficking has no place in our world today”
    REACT…ITS TIME

  • mrs vega

    What is the big deal about if he smokes? It is his business not anyone else’s especially the ones who have mentioned his smoking in their comments on here. Just because Brad Pitt stopped smoking doesn’t mean everyone else in the world has to and that includes Ricky. He is a 37 year old man who makes his own decisions and choices so BACK OFF HIS BACK AND WORRY ABOUT YOUR OWN LIFE.

  • Dyna

    I saw him in concert many years ago. He does a good job at making eye contact with as many people as he can in his audience. He also gave a little speech about how no matter what you do for a living/job, it all counts. It was very sweet, he has a way of making people feel good about themselves. I think he’ll be a great dad.

  • jane

    where is the MOTHER…

    hahhahaha

    oh thats right he is GAY !!!!
    adoption is the new cool….NOT

  • lizzie
  • amanda

    “He has his foundation that helps many children around the world and is in the forefront of the struggle to eradicate trafficking in children.”

    He has hired people for that, bim*o. He doesn’t need to do much. Do you think he works there like 8 hours a day, as normal people have to work for a living? The money for the foundation comes from donations, not his own money. “Forefront of the struggle”…geee, what a s***** fan girl we have here.

  • MAndy

    IS RICKY REALLY GAY???

    No, he just loves to jerk off in a cup.

  • Corey 2 cool

    hu @ 01/16/2009 at 8:47 pm # 20

    Your an ass, it takes to to tangle and any person who walks away from there child get no emotion from me she a whore just like you. But my point is he is a good single father, that men can make much better parent than women but you missed that. Everyone alway saying how children need mothers, they need love and safety no matter who they are getting it from. I sorry but i am tried of women always playing the victims and men being seen as evil pervs. Not every guy who wants kids is gay, just like women walk around saying they dont need a man to complete them why can’t men feel the same without being gay.

  • angie

    Look, there is nothing wrong with Ricky being gay and nothing wrong with him wanting to be a father, even if it means accomplishing it clinically (like thousands of infertile hetero couples have to do). Why is such a big deal being made of this?

  • ewwwww

    hmmmm… is the surrogate story true I wonder? Or did he actually get somebody pregnant.

    Like how some woman refer to ex-boyfriends as ‘a sperm donor’, is Ricky doing the same thing and saying ‘surrogate mother’. When in fact this other peson was a partner?

  • Jaye

    He disappeared from the U.S scene when the rumors that he was gay got hot and heavy, but he’s still popular in his own country, i think. In this day and age you’d think that closet would be empty.

    sheryl @ 01/16/2009 at 9:55 pm, I agree with you whether he is gay or not is his business and how the babies were conceived is his business also. However, I do believe he gave an interview announcing the birth, therefore it is reasonable that people would talk about it and asked questions. Now there are those ‘first pictures’ of the babies that are out. If he really wanted to be private, he would have kept it ALL out of the mags, he didn’t have to participate.

  • Wilby

    Wow, what cynical,snide and really nasty comments about a man you don’t know on a personal, one on one basis. He is an entertainer and a fantastic singer to boot. He has a really big heart, that is filled with compassion on a scale most of your wee bitty black jaded hearts could never comprehend. Beyond entertaining the masses that appreciates his gift, his personal life is absolutely no ones business but his own. Have you ever had to have your insignificant lives picked apart on a daily basis? Have you ever had to have your every action picked apart to suffer humiliations at every turn. Do any of you every try to have a normal quite moment to yourself and have some jerk try to document it for public speculation and ridicule. Do any of you ever use your name, fame, time and money to make a small difference in your immediate community. Ricky does this on a regular basis, but when he does something for himself to have a bit of normalcy in his chaotic life its met with malice, bigotry and utter contempt. I have to ask? Who’s behavior needs to analyzed. Really… If he is gay or not, he doesn’t have to allow any of you [people] and I use the term very loosely, access to his inner person, his spirit or soul. that he obviously saves for people who he loves, trust and truly care for him as a caring, smart, feeling human being. You should only share your inner most feelings, concerns with people who love you for you and not because you have something that want to just use you for their own gains.

    I HATE WHEN PEOPLE TALK @$&T ABOUT HIM WITHOUT KNOWING!
    HE IS AN INCREDIBLE MAN, AND A GREAT ARTIST! AND WHY PEOPLE COMMENT IF HE IS GAY OR NOT WHEN THE ARTICLE IS ABOUT HIM GOING AROUND NYC?? SO PLEASE STICK TO THE ARTICLEE!! OK? RICKY IS A WONDERFUL MAN WHO HELPS CHILDREN WITH HIS FOUNDATION, AND NOBODY TALKS ABOUT IT!!! BUT YOU ARE ALL QUICKLY TO TALK ABOUT HIS SEXUALITY OR IF HE DOESN’T GIVE TO THEIR (GORGEOUS) TWINS A MOTHER!!
    I LOVE YOU RICKY!!!
    YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, YOU LOOK TIRED, THOUGH!! IT’S NONE OF MY BUSINESS BUT PLEASE STOP SMOKING!! :P JAJAJA! I LOVE YOOOOOOOUUU! YOU’RE GREAT AND I WILL ALWAYS SUPPORT YOU BECAUSE YOU ARE THE BEST FOR ME! YOU AND YOUR LOVELY TWINS DESERVE THE BEST!!! (L)

  • Karen

    I still think that he is gorgeous; age, smoking, gay or not, single dad or not. From somebody who grew up with my parents married but constantly fighting, I think that it would have been a lot more healthy for my siblings and me to have grown up with one parent than to live in the world of fighting and screaming and yelling that we did. Why would he lie about being an involved parent? And if you remember right, he kept this quiet for some time. If and when the babes get older and he starts being seen out and about with them, people would talk and speculate. Plus, why not share his joy with the world if that is what he wanted to do. Two of the best fathers that I have ever known were gay men, “a couple” and they adopted HIV and drug exposed babes from foster care that otherwise would have probably lived in residential facilities. They loved these kids and gave them tons of unconditional love and happiness. I say more power and congratulations to him!!!

  • Karen

    Has any one noticed that these pics are from 3 different times? He has on different coats. Oh no, does that mean that he has been out 3 times w/o the babies? What a horrible father for not dragging those little ones out in the cold!!

  • KAREN – SAN DIEGO

    The obvious is gay, but that does not say is the best time, as everyone knows, children have a mother and a father, not a single gay father.

  • Raqel

    You look horible.You need a”classy”girl(such as myself)by your side.Give me a call…orre,call me”baby”.
