Ricky Martin said goodbye to 2018 with a bang! The singer revealed on Monday, December 31, that he and husband Jwan Yosef secretly welcomed a baby girl.
The 47-year-old singer announced the joyous news on his Instagram. “We are beyond happy to announce that we have become parents to a beautiful and healthy baby girl, Lucia Martin-Yosef. It has been a special time for us and we can’t wait to see where this stellar baby will take us. Both her beautiful brothers and me and [Jwan] have fallen in love with Lucia.”
The Latin singer is already a father to twin boys, Matteo, and Valentino that he welcomed in August 2008 via surrogate. The “Livin’ La Vida Loca” singer began dating Yosef, 34, in 2016 and the couple secretly wed in January of 2018.
Martin spoke to Giuliana Rancic during the red carpet at the 2018 Golden Globes and assured the T.V. personality that he would have more children even admitting that he wants “four more pairs of twins.”
“I do want a big family, but there’s a lot going on at the moment. We’re going to get ready for many more kids,” he told Rancic.
The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story actor couldn’t hide his happiness about his marriage to Martin when speaking to reporters.
“I love it! I look at this foreign object, my wedding ring, on my hand and I’m like, ‘Yes, but it’s mine!’ And we look at each other every night and we go, ‘This is so special. I like it,’” he said in March. “That signed paper is very special, which makes me strong about ‘Come on, guys. Every country should allow us to get married because it’s just natural.’ It might take a while but, anyways, I just think it’s important.”
What a great start to 2018 for the happy couple. Congrats!
