Ricky Martin announced that he and his husband, Jwan Yosef, are expecting a baby, per Music News.
The “I Don’t Care” hitmaker announced the news while accepting an award at the 23rd annual Human Rights Campaign National Dinner in Washington D.C. over the weekend.
“My husband Jwan, I love you, my beautiful twins, Valentino and Matteo, they’re also here, I love you with all my heart, you’re my strength, you inspire me every day, you motivate me to keep doing what I’m doing and you guys are amazing kids,” Martin stated.
“You guys are amazing. I love you. Lucia, my baby girl who is not here with us, she stayed at home with Grandma, but she’s also the light of my life,” he continued.
“And by the way, I have to announce that we are pregnant.”
“We are waiting. Alright! I love big families,” Martin revealed.
The baby will be delivered via surrogate. Martin first had children back in 2008 when his twins were born. Last December, his daughter, Lucia, was born.
The “She Bangs” chart-topper married Yosef in 2017.
He attended the Human Rights event with his husband and sons, where he posed on the carpet with them. Martin wore an all-black suit ensemble with a white shirt while Yosef wore a navy suit with a white shirt. His sons too looked stylish in smart attire too.
