Ricky Martin is already "Livin' La Vida Loca" but life is about to get even busier. The Latin singer, who announced that he and husband Jwan Yosef had welcomed a daughter named Lucia at the end of 2018, joining recently announced that another baby is on the way!
Martin accepted the HRC National Visibility Award at the 23rd annual Human Rights Campaign National Dinner in Washington D.C. over the weekend where he made his exciting announcement. The new baby will join big sister Lucia and Martin's 11-year-old twin sons Valentino and Matteo. Martin attended the awards dinner with Yosef and his sons, and during his acceptance speech, the former Menudo frontman felt compelled to let everyone know they would soon be adding to their family.
"My family's here," the singer said. "Jwan, I don't see you but 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. 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 said before making his announcement. "And by the way, I have to announce that we are pregnant. We are waiting," he said giddily to a round of applause.
Martin and Yosef, who met in 2016 and married in 2018, are thrilled to be adding to their family. Martin has been open about using a surrogate for his twin sons after deciding that he wanted to become a father. He told PEOPLE back in 2009 that he “always knew” he wanted to be a father. “Adoption was one option, but it’s complicated and can take a longtime. Surrogacy was an intriguing and faster option. I thought, ‘I’m going to jump into this with no fear.’ I put my name on the list for one baby and then found out I got two!”
Now the happy couple is about to welcome baby #4 into the mix, with Martin telling the crowd at the awards dinner, "Alright! I love big families."
Congratulations to the entire family!
