Well if you had a bet riding on Ricky Martin ’s sexuality, now is the time to collect. Tell your friends to, “Pay up!”, because it’s official- Ricky Martin has announced that he is indeed gay. Monday, Martin posted on his blog:
“I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man…This is just what I need especially now that I am the father of two beautiful boys that are so full of light and who with their outlook teach me new things every day. To keep living as I did up until today would be to indirectly diminish the glow that my kids were born with.”
Martin became a father in 2008 when he had two children by a surrogate. This decision to embrace his sexuality came with the decision to writer a memoir. Beginning to write brought him to a new place in life, and he reached what he describes as “an amzing turning point” in his life. It’s fantastic to see someone accepting who they are, not only for himself, but for his kids. If only it would have come sooner!
