Ricky Martin‘s family is now a party of six! The 47-year-old singer took to social media to announce the birth of his new baby boy. In a photo with his beautiful baby alongside his husband of two years, Martin wrote, “Our son Renn Martin-Yosef has been born.”
The couple also shares two twin boys, Matteo and Valentino, and 10-month-old baby girl Lucia Martin-Yosef. The two announced they were expecting their fourth child via surrogacy during the 23rd annual Human Rights Campaign National Dinner in Washington D.C.
During the dinner, Martin said, “My family’s here. 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.”
Then he added much to everyone’s surprise, “And by the way, I have to announce that we are pregnant.”
Earlier this year, Martin also spoke about his plans to expand his family. He also suggested baby number four may not be the last baby he and husband Yosef want. “Since my twins were born, I wanted Daddy’s little girl. I want a big family, we want a big family, it’s been beautiful,” Martin told Mario Lopez on Entertainment Tonight. “We’re only getting started.”
Last year he also told E! News that he wanted “four more pairs of twins.”
Now, the “Living La Vida Loca” singer is going to be beyond busy in the next several weeks with a newborn finally here and because he’ll be co-hosting this year’s 20th annual Latin Grammy Awards. The Puerto Rican star announced last week that he would be joining actresses Paz Vega and Roselyn Sanchez on stage as host. He also teased that he might perform during the show.
“When I’m on a stage of that magnitude, I cannot just stand there and host,” he said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “Let’s see what happens.”
