Well it's about time! Ricky Martin introduced his twin sons to the world this morning via a beachside photo spread in the new issue of People Magazine. The boricua star is pictured cradling 4-month-old Matteo and Valentino Martin alongside la playa in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and per usual, he's got nothing but beautiful, spiritually enlightened words to share. "Everything they do, from smiling to crying, feels like a blessing," says Ricky. "Being a father feels amazing. This has been the most spiritual moment in my life."
Though the boys are twins, it seems they already have distinct personalities: "Valentino loves to sleep. I call him 'Mr. Peace and Love' because he's
so chill and serene. Matteo is more alert and active. He was up at 3
a.m. the other night and just hanging!"
Like Jennifer and Marc did before him, Ricky insists that he does not use a nanny: "I have a personal assistant who helps me, someone who takes care of me
while I'm taking care of them, but I'm the one who changes the diapers,
the one that feeds them, the one that bathes them, the one that puts
them to sleep." Ingenious. We're so hiring an adult nanny for ourselves when we have kids.
Finally, Ricky shares what we already knew--that he's a wonderful papi. "I love to read books to my sons and tell them stories. I play music for
them so they develop their own personalities. I want to give them
information and raise them with honesty and love, and give them
self-esteem and a lot of acceptance."
Ok, our hearts are literally melting. We love this man! What's your impression of Ricky Martin as a father?
