On his website Rickymartinmusic.com, singer Ricky Martin recently revealed that he is indeed gay, as many had guessed.
He wrote: “I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.”
But it was his twin sons, who will be 2 in August, that inspired him to come out officially.
He wrote: “To keep living as I did up until today would be to indirectly diminish the glow that my kids were born with. These years in silence and reflection made me stronger and reminded me that acceptance has to come from within and that this kind of truth gives me the power to conquer emotions I didn’t even know existed.”
Becoming a parent certainly can inspire people in many ways!
