    It’s so wonderful that Ricky has these adorable children… I just feel sorry for his partner, who always has to be left out of the photos, articles, announcements, etc., as if he is not their dad, too. As great as I think Ricky is, his partner is twice the man for having to endure that.

    This reminds me of:

    ——————–
    so much depends
    upon
    a red wheel
    barrow
    glazed with rain
    water
    beside the white
    chickens
    ——————–

    What colors do you see?
    Do you see the red barn???

    Do you see his husband????

    Lovely –

    Too bad there’s even light hair on “the twins”. At least there aren’t any tattoos on them! (I always prefer a smooth, unblemished chest!). Oh, the kids are cute, too!

    A few critiques directed at various comments in this thread:

    1) I don’t think Ricky Martin’s all that “deep” in the closet… his closet is definitely made of glass.

    2) When has he disparaged the gay community? Yeah, it’d be nice if he’d come out already, but I don’t think the venom some people seem to have for him in this thread is at all warranted. Go direct that anger at the closeted bigots, like Lindsey Graham or the Governor of Florida.

    3) He wasn’t just a one hit wonder. Ignoring his successful spanish-language albums is elitist at best, prejudiced at worst. Plus, I saw him as part of a festival concert way, way back in the day… he was pretty kick ass, one of the few acts I really enjoyed, even if I wasn’t huge on his few big songs. I can certainly appreciate people who are good live, as big and flashy as he was.

    he wants kids just like every other red blooded American male, he’s just not prepared to do what it takes to get them, worries me a little he looks so bored with them, reminds me of when i had a bird and forgot to feed it to find it days later. That said, he’s married now acc to NY Post to a man in Brooklyn so…la vida buena.

    @keith, you obviously don’t know much about nothing. Ricky Martin is a MEGASTAR in Latin America, Europe and Asia. I still don’t get why the man can’t live his private life in peace! What no one should care about are the prissy, clueless queens who stomp their Skechers boaties and just insist Ricky comes out. Assholes.

    Last time I checked, Ricky wasn’t put on this planet to please us. Some people don’t let their sexuality define them and Ricky’s decision to ignore the personal questions should be applauded. It really is none of our business. I’ll remember all you haters the next time I see him perform in San Juan. Ricky is the finest of wines…

    Why does everyone need to be out? That has never made sense to me. Being good person is a reason to be out, not being gay. I looks to me like he loves those boys. That is his triumph and his blessing.

    I understand coming out takes time because I just came out a few years ago myself. But the “glass closet” of some of these celebrities is just too painful to watch. He’s basically straight-for-pay for the last remaining homophobic idiots who want a fantasy crush in Rio or wherever he still sells.

    If his partner is actively raising these kids with him he should be livid for being left out of these photo shoots.

    Ricky Martin… the older he gets, the hunkier and hotter he gets. He’s gonna be awesome-looking even as a 60 year old. Never really liked his music that much, until he started doing those exquisite Spanish ballads. Beautiful stuff. What I REALLY like about this guy (my life partner is gaga for him –my partner’s a big businessman, and he doesn’t hide the fact that he likes Ricky Martin’s music, regardless of who he’s dealing with)… anyhow, the thing I really admire about Ricky is that he has never been dishonest about his sexuality. He doesn’t comment, and he doesn’t deny. And I think his actions are rather clear that he likes men. So it’s not like he’s being a hypocrite or dishonest or dissembling. That says a lot about his intergrity. I really like his style… and the fact that he wanted to have kids is really cool in my opinion. It’s about more than just himself.
    Very cool. Seems like a gentle man, too.
    Guess I’m a fan!
