Ricky Martin on Coming Out: 'I Couldn't Take It Anymore'

Ricky Martin drops by The Oprah Winfrey Show to chat about his new life as a dad in an episode airing Tuesday (November 2).

The 38-year-old Puerto Rican pop star also revealed why he decided to come out as a gay man.

“I couldn’t take it anymore, Oprah. I couldn’t take it anymore. It was too painful,” he says in a sneak peek.

“Before I decided to become a father,” he added, “I already accepted who I was and I was happy with who I was and when I was holding my children, I said, ‘OK, it’s time to tell the world.’”

Ricky will also be performing his new song, “The Best Thing About Me Is You,” with Joss Stone on the show tomorrow!
