MIAMI, FL – The pop sensation that made you “shake your bon-bon” has revealed some shocking news!
Ricky Martin blazed through the charts with singles such as “Livin La Vida Loca” and was the obsession of millions of women across the globe. The Puerto Rican singer has announced to the public that he is gay, confirming what many thought they already knew.
“I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man,” Martin said in a message posted on his official Web site. “I am very blessed to be who I am.”
The steps towards finding inner peace came while writing his memoir and thinking about his twin sons. Martin became a proud father in 2008 via a surrogate and has been a stranger to the limelight. Both moments led him to finally go public with his secret.
“To keep living as I did up until today would be to indirectly diminish the glow that my kids where born with. Enough is enough. This has to change. This was not supposed to happen 5 or 10 years ago, it is supposed to happen now. Today is my day, this is my time, and this is my moment,” he added in his message.
