“My family’s here,” Martin said. “Jwan, I don’t see you but my husband Jwan, I love you, my beautiful twins, Valentino and Matteo, they’re also here, I love you with all my heart, you’re my strength, you inspire me every day, you motivate me to keep doing what I’m doing and you guys are amazing kids. You guys are amazing. I love you. Lucia, my baby girl who is not here with us, she stayed at home with Grandma, but she’s also the light of my life.”
In the same speech he also gave a shout out to his 8-month-old daughter Lucia, who is staying at her grandmother’s house. He added how she is the light of his life before making the big announcement.
“And by the way, I have to announce that we are pregnant. We are waiting,” he added. The announcement was met with cheers and applauses from the crowd as well as netizens online.
The lucky new addition will join up with twins, Valentino and Matteo, both 11-years-old together with Lucia, whom the couple welcomed in December 2018.
Ricky Martin met his husband Jwan Yosef, painter and visual artist, in Instagram and they immediately hit it off, exchanging messages for six months in 2016.
They later began dating in the same year and eventually announced their marriage in January 2018.
