Ricky Martin and Jwan Yosef Are Expecting 4th Child

Baby #4 is on the way for “Livin’ La Vida Loca” singer Ricky Martin who announced this weekend while attending the 23rd annual Human Rights Campaign National Dinner in Washington, DC that he and his artist husband Jwan Yosef are expecting another child.

While being honored for his work for LGBTQ rights and advocacy, he paused to acknowledge his brood in the audience.

“My family’s here,” the singer 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.”

He ended it with the announcement, casually remarking, “and by the way, I have to announce that we are pregnant.”

The audience exploded in applause and cheers, USA Today reported.

“We are waiting. All right! I love big families,” he added.

He also gave a shout-out to his 8-month-old daughter, Lucia, who stayed with her grandma. Martin called her “the light of my life.”

The former Menudo bandmember famously welcomed his 11-year old sons via surrogate years ago, about 2 years before he came out the closet in 2010.

Ricky Martin and New Hubby Welcome Daughter, Lucia

Singer Ricky Martin and his new husband Jwan Yosef welcomed a brand new baby girl via surrogate on Monday, December 31.

“We are beyond happy to announce that we have become parents to a beautiful and healthy baby girl, Lucia Martin-Yosef,” the “Living La Vida Loca” singer captioned an Instagram photo of himself and Yosef holding their daughter’s hands. “It has been a special time for us and we can’t wait to see where this stellar baby will take us. Both her beautiful brothers and me and [Jwan] have fallen in love with Lucia.”

The “Assassination of Gianni Versace” actor is already a dad, via surrogate to twin boys, Matteo and Valentino, that he welcomed in August 2008.

The couple began dating Yosef, 34, in 2016 and before secretly marrying. Yosef, a Syrian-born Swedish painter and artist, added an identical photo to his Instagram as well! 

“We are beyond happy to announce that we have become parents to a beautiful and healthy baby girl, Lucia Martin-Yosef,” he wrote. “It has been a special time for us and we cant wait to see where this stellar baby will take us. Both her beautiful brothers and me and Ricky have fallen in love with Lucia.”

Martin spoke to Giuliana Rancic during the red carpet at the 2018 Golden Globes and assured the T.V. personality that he would have more children even admitting that he wants “four more pairs of twins.”

“I do want a big family, but there’s a lot going on at the moment,” he told Rancic. “We’re going to get ready for many more kids.” 

I love this photo of the 2019 Golden Globes prep! Is this the equivalent of the mom glam multitasking shot? I think so!!
