Ricky Martin Bio
In the past Martin expressed he was in love with Mexican TV host Rebecca de Alba, with whom he had an off-&-on-again relationship for over 14 years. They even talked of starting a family together, & at 1 point Martin planned on proposing. However w/ the release of Life, Martin confirmed he and De Alba had parted ways. In August 2008, Martin turned the father of twin boys, named Matteo and Valentino. The babies were birthed by a surrogate mother. After the success of Livin’ la Vida Loca, Martin’s personal life went a subject of interest due to his large gay following, & he was questioned about his sexual orientation. In a December 2000 interview w/ The Mirror, Martin was asked to comment on the rumors surrounding his sexuality. He replied that “I don’t think I should have to tell anyone if I am gay or not, or who I’ve slept w/ or not.”
On March 29, 2010, Martin publicly acknowledged his homosexuality in a blog on his official web site by stating, “I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.” Martin said that “these years in silence and reflection made me stronger & prompted me that acceptance has to come from inside, and that this kind of truth gives me the power to conquer emotions I didn’t even know existed.” In 2010, prior to Ricky Martin coming out, Barbara Walters expressed some regret for pushing Martin in a 2000 interview to admit if he was gay. The Toronto Star quoted her as saying, “When I think back on it now, I feel it was an inappropriate question.”
