Ricky Martin come out and confirms his homosexuality. Martin apparently made his coming out official via Twitter on Monday. The Latin singer who ripped up the charts with Livin' La Vida Loca apparently crashed his personal website with the announcement that he is gay at approximately 4:17 p.m. on March 29, 2010. Martin stated on his official web site: "I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am."
Martin supposedly had a 14 year long on and off again relationship with Mexican TV host Rebecca de Alba. The pair reportedly discussed having children but the idea never came to fruition. After the couple parted ways permanently, Martin fathered twin boys via surrogate. In August 2008, Martin entered parenthood to sons Matteo and Valentino.
