Vanity Fair, Ricky Martin

Vanity Fair

Ricky Martins got some good genes! The proud papa showed off his 3-year-old twins, Matteo and Valentino, on the cover of Spanish Vanity Fair's April issue.

In his candid interview with the mag, the 40-year-old Latin superstar opens up about his sexuality, gay marriage and his relationship with the mother of his children...

"I have slept with women and I fell in love with them and I felt wonderful things," he says. "There was a lot of love [and] passion."

He publicly came out in 2010, but learned "a lot" from his relationships with "both men and women."

Martin and Carlos González Abella, his partner of four years, are raising Matteo and Valentino together. But it was a woman Martin describes as "so angelic, so transparent" who made it possible for them to have children.

"I would give my life to the woman who helped me bring my children into the world," Martin says, adding that he rejects the term "surrogate."

"I [did] not rent a womb," he explains. "This expression is used by fundamentalist conservatives."

So will Martin and Abella be saying "I do" in the near future? He tells the mag: "If they touch [the same-sex marriage law], now as a Spanish citizen, I would stand up and unite with my community."
