Watch: Ricky Martin & Husband Jwan Yosef Announce Divorce

They might not be dancing in the rain, but you'll still never be the same after this video. 

Ricky Martin's July 17 concert in Locarno, Switzerland, turned into a full-on family affair as his 14-year-old twin boys, Matteo and Valentino, joined him on stage for the first time. In the video shared by the singer, the twins can be seen coming up behind the 51-year-old and dancing, looking to hype up the crowd. For his part, the "Livin' La Vida Loca" singer looks surprised but thrilled by the surprise appearance, laughing and smiling as he introduces his sons to the crowd, before continuing with his performance.

"What a beautiful surprise!" Ricky captioned his July 17 post, alongside a crying emoji. "When my twins jumped on stage with me for the first time in Locarno, Switzerland."

In addition to the twins, who were born in 2008 via surrogate, Ricky is also father to daughter Lucia, 4, and son Renn, 3, who he shares with his estranged husband Jwan Yosef. Earlier this month, the pair shared their intent to divorce after six years of marriage, citing their hope to maintain a "healthy family dynamic" as they "transform" their relationship. 

Ricky Martin Through the Years

And while this might be the first time Matteo and Valentino have actually made it onstage with their dad, they've long expressed their desire to join him on tour

"The big ones are telling me, 'Come on, Dad,'" the American Crime Story actor revealed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2021, ahead of a tour that September. "'When are we going on the road? When are we gonna do this?' They're really looking forward to it." 

So given their desire for tour life and the new evidence of their rocking performance skills, might the teens ultimately follow in their dad's musical footsteps? The "Maria" artist has said that no matter their ultimate goals, he is ready to support their dreams. 

"Matteo is more into the arts and Valentino is gonna spend his life in front of a screen because he wants to be the best YouTuber in the world," Ricky told Extra the previous year. "When I was 12 years old, I told my father that I wanted to be an artist and he supported me and I am very thankful, Dad, for that, for just coming with me on this journey, so I have to do the same."
