Ricky Martin & His Twins Arrive In L.A.

Ricky Martin and his twin boys return to sunny LA

Ricky Martin and his 5-year-old twin boys Matteo and Valentino touched down at LAX in Los Angeles, Calif. on Monday (September 23).

The Puerto Rican pop star has written a children’s book called Santiago the Dreamer in Land Among the Stars. The picture book was inspired by Martin’s own love of performing as a kid. It will be published in English and Spanish on Nov. 14.

The story is about a boy named Santiago who loses the lead role in the school play. He learns to believe in himself to continue to follow his dreams.

Martin says in a press release: “I hope this book inspires young readers to believe that dreams woven from their imaginations can become reality. My greatest wish is that Santiago The Dreamer will occupy a special place in the hearts of children and their parents, with everyone enjoying this uplifting story that shows the fulfillment of dreams begins with self-confidence.”

Ricky Martin is gay. Get outta here!


Ricky Martin came out of the closet yesterday on his official blog and we were as much shocked to read it as we were when we read that Britney Spears was deemed retarded and unable to buy gum on her own by an official court of law. Come on, even Barbara Walters knew it back in 2000 and she hasn’t seen a penis since Caligula went crazy and started running around Rome naked yearning for some horse ass to stick it into (true story). Hey, at least now him and Clay Atkins can openly share stories of their weekly colonics:

“Today is my day, this is my time, and this is my moment. These years in silence and reflection made me stronger and reminded me that acceptance has to come from within and that this kind of truth gives me the power to conquer emotions I didn’t even know existed … I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.”

“What will happen from now on? It doesn’t matter. I can only focus on what’s happening to me in this moment. The word ‘happiness’ takes on a new meaning for me as of today. It has been a very intense process. Every word that I write in this letter is born out of love, acceptance, detachment and real contentment. Writing this is a solid step towards my inner peace and vital part of my evolution.”

“Many people told me: ‘Ricky it’s not important,’ ‘it’s not worth it,’ ‘all the years you’ve worked and everything you’ve built will collapse,’ ‘many people in the world are not ready to accept your truth, your reality, your nature.’ Because all this advice came from people who I love dearly, I decided to move on with my life not sharing with the world my entire truth. Allowing myself to be seduced by fear and insecurity became a self-fulfilling prophecy of sabotage. Today I take full responsibility for my decisions and my actions.”


Matteo Martin Marvels At Washington Monument

Ricky Martin, 38, shared a photo of himself and one of his twin boys, 1-year-old Matteo, outside the Washington Monument on Twitter this afternoon (January 2), with the caption: “on the road! loving it!”

Shortly after the arrival of his twin boys, Ricky spoke with PEOPLE about life as a single dad:

I don't have a nanny. I'm doing this on my own because I don't want to miss a moment. I have a personal assistant who helps me, someone who takes care of me while I'm taking care of them, but I'm the one who changes the diapers, the one that feeds them, the one that bathes them, the one that puts them to sleep. For any parent, the first couple of months tend to get a little bit intense.

Matteo and his twin brother, Valentino, were born in August 2008 via surrogate.
