Ricky Martin and friend

Ricky Martin yesterday became father to twin boys through a surrogate mother.

“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.”

It’s funny when they say Ricky will spend the next year out of the spotlight. The AP probably gave his reps a funny look and asked, “Ricky who? Oh, him. Isn’t he gay?!” Anyway, isn’t he gay? My magic 8-ball says, “All signs point to yes.”
