Ricky Martin talks to People en Español about the loves of his life: his husband Jwan Josef and children Lucía, Valentino and Matteo.
Ricky Martin doesn’t mind losing sleep if it means spending his nights rocking his baby daughter Lucía to sleep and singing her lullabies. “The diapers and sleepless nights are back!”, the 47-year-old Puerto Rican star, who is already a father to twins Matteo and Valentino, 10, told People en Español about his home life with husband Jwan Josef. Having his soul mate by his side makes a very positive difference, he admits. “Jwan has many qualities and they made me fall in love with him”, he adds. “He is a fascinating person, extremely intelligent, talented, and he is a wonderful dad and husband”.
The “Livin’ La Vida Loca” singer has been able to balance work and family life. The star’s Instagram account is filled with tender moments from this new stage in his life, having his hair cut at home with a baby stroller nearby, a photo of Lucía wearing a onesie with the words “futura mujer radical” [future radical woman] and images of his twins interacting with their newborn sister when she first came home.
“We are excited to announce that we have become parents of a beautiful and healthy girl whom we have named Lucia Martin-Yosef,” the couple posted on Instagram on New Year’s Eve. “We are beyond happy to announce that we have become parents to a beautiful and healthy baby girl, Lucia Martin-Yosef. 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,” Yosef, 34, captioned the first image they shared of the baby.
Ricky Martin thanks God for his many blessings daily and only asks for one thing. “To have health primarily” he says, “if I have that I can continue working everyday in my personal, professional and philanthropic projects.”
What is he most grateful for? “Life has giving me so much,” the Grammy winner recognizes, “but if I have to chose one thing, I would say it’s my family”.
