Ricky Martin: My Children are a Miracle

Becoming a father hasn't slowed Ricky Martin down. He's still rocking every concert and selling out shows while being a committed dad. In fact, he admits touring is less “stressful” now that he's a dad. Come again?

Ricky takes his two-year old twin sons Matteo and Valentino on tour with him when he travels, making his job “less stressful”.

He said: "I work with 115 people on the road and when I get to the venue, people are working and building the stage, and it can be stressful. They could be arguing and then my kids walk by and it all stops and it's, 'Hi Matteo. Hi Valentino. How are you doing?' You get 30 seconds of peace and love and joy - even if they go back to the craziness after."

Ricky became a father in August 2008 thanks to a surrogate mother and he confesses his life has been absolutely amazing ever since.

He added in an interview with the Metro newspaper: "Everything is perfect the way it is right now. One day, I woke up and thought, 'I need to become a father.' So I sat in front of the computer, looked up parenting and came across surrogacy - and it's beautiful. My children are a miracle. They're here because I really wanted them in my life.

"They were wished for and came to me. People say it's not good traveling with them, they need stability. Daddy is their stability. Besides, at that age, what's normal? Everything's new."

So not only is he is unbelievably sexy, he's a devoted father. Doesn't get better than that!
