Martin: I'd love another child

Ricky Martin wants a daughter to make his family complete

Ricky Martin has revealed he wants to expand his brood with a baby daughter.

The Livin' La Vida Loca singer - who is father to two-year-old twin boys Matteo and Valentino - would like to have a "daddy's girl" once he finishes playing Che Guevara in Evita on Broadway next year.

He told The Guardian: "I'll be steady in New York, and then, after I do the play, the baby [will be] born, and I'm going to be able to spend time with her."

Ricky, who announced he was gay last year, has been in a relationship with stockbroker Carlos Gonzalez Abella for four years - but isn't planning to tie the knot just yet.

"Whenever it's time. I would love the option to marry in my land, my island [Puerto Rico] but unfortunately it's not an option for us yet, which I think is ridiculous," he said.

"But it's part of a very beautiful process that's happening around the world little by little. Hopefully I will see it, and my kids will see it."

The singer, who releases his Greatest Hits this month, said he's felt liberated since he came out.

"I feel protected. I don't feel alone," he added.

"Because sometimes when you're quiet about yourself, you feel all alone."

Although you have no interest in pitting your talent against theirs, this other person thinks very differently. Ignoring them won't be possible. A good way to disarm this pest is to invite them out for coffee. Describe what you've observed and ask for a truce. Irrational people are often thrown off balance when their behaviour is addressed in a direct manner.More
