Ricky Martin has shaken his bon-bon all the way to the paternity ward: The Latino superstar is now the proud father of twin boys.

The "Livin' la Vida Loca" singer's spawn were delivered via a surrogate mother several weeks ago, his rep confirmed today.

"The children, delivered via surrogacy, are healthy and already under Ricky's full-time care," per the official statement.

"Ricky is elated to begin this new chapter in his life as a parent and will be spending the remainder of the year out of the public spotlight in order to spend time with his children."

No further details were made available, including either the tots' names or vital statistics.

There's also no word on the identity of the boys' mother.

These are the first offspring for the 36-year-old Grammy winner, who has long been an advocate for kids, devoting time to charities that work to prevent the sexual exploitation of children.
