Ricky Martin is the new father of twin baby boys, born by a surrogate mother.
Martin, 36, known for his hits Livin’ La Vida Loca and She Bangs, became a father a few weeks ago and plans to spend the rest of the year with the babies, according to a statement by Perfect Partners.
“In recent weeks, Ricky Martin became a proud father by the birth of twin sons. The children, delivered via gestational surrogacy, are healthy and already under Ricky’s full-time care,” the statement said.
“Ricky is elated to begin this new chapter in his life as a parent and will be spending the remainder of the year out of the public spotlight in order to spend time with his children.”
No further details were released about the mother or the babies.
The singer, who has been active in children’s causes through his Ricky Martin Foundation, maintains residences in New York and Miami.
