Ricky Martin Now Proud Papa

Puerto Rican crooner Ricky Martin just got a new gig: daddy.

Martin’s press team confirmed today that the 36-year old welcomed two twin boys this week. And, no, he didn’t produce them the “old-fashioned way.” Why? Well, perhaps because of his rumored homosexuality, which Martin’s hairdresser inadvertently revealed last year.

The Latin superstar had the children via a surrogate mother, and the babies were born a few weeks ago, according to a statement from his representatives.

“The children, delivered via gestational surrogacy, are healthy and already under Ricky’s full-time care,” said the statement. “Ricky is elated to begin this new chapter in his life as a parent and will be spending the remainder of the year out of the public spotlight in order to spend time with his children.”

A representative said there was no further information on the details of the children’s birth.

No word on whether Martin’s ubiquitous pal, pictured above, will be acting as his wing man.

[By the way, anyone know that man’s name?]
