Ricky Martin Answers Tough Questions
Ricky Martin, proud father of 6-year-old twin boys Matteo and Valentino (above), had some heartwarming answers to his sons curious questions. During a recent interview, Martin talked about his new single “Adiós” and opened up about one of the most difficult questions his kids have ever asked.
In 2008, Martin took a break from his career to raise the boys who came into his life via gestational surrogacy. One of his sons asked him, “Dad, was I in your belly?” to which Martin replied, ‘you were in my heart and you are still in my heart.’ He explained further: ‘There was a woman that I adore with all my heart that helped me bring you into this world. She lent me her belly so that you could come and when you were born she put you in my arms.’
Martin also warned that you have to be careful what you say to the media. When asked by an outlet if he would like to have a daddy’s girl headlines popped up the next day saying ‘Ricky is going to be the father of a little girl!’
Despite not currently having another baby on the way, Martin said he is definitely looking forward to seeing his family grow in the future.
