Ricky Martin’s Twins Have Polar Opposite Personalities

They might look similar, but according to their famous daddy, they are polar opposites when it comes to their personalities. Latin pop sensation Ricky Martin says that his boys, Valentino and Matteo are extreme opposites when it comes to their characters and how they play.

He tells Advocate Magazine:

“Valentino is mister peace and love. He loves flowers and nature. If I ever wonder where he is, he’ll be somewhere behind the bushes covered in mud. I know this sounds crazy, but I think he mediates. He goes under the water. I’m like, ‘He’s gone. He’s traveling right now.’ He’s very Zen and noble.”

He also adds:

“Matteo is more alpha and a leader. He’s like, ‘You don’t do that, this is what you do.’ He tells his brother what to do and what not to do.”

Ricky also says that he’s loving every minute of fatherhood and that his life of course revolves around the needs of his twin boys. Gotta love a dedicated, loving celebrity dad and it looks like that’s exactly what Ricky is!

Ricky Martin Wants A Daughter

Ricky Martin is already a dad to 3-year-old twins Matteo and Valentino, but the latin crooner is looking to add another kid to the mix sometime soon.

On having baby no. 3, he said, “I think that I’ll do it later on this year, so that [the kids] are not too far apart in ages. A little girl! Dios mio, me muero… But we’re going to talk about that later on. It would be irresponsible to do it now.”

But don’t expect Martin to get married anytime soon. “We are not talking about it, we’re not thinking about it,” he says, refering to his partner Carlos Gonzalez Abella. “But I’m so happy that in Europe we have the option. It’s amazing to think that we can say, ‘I feel like it. I’m ready. Let’s go.'”

Ricky Martin Wants A “Daddy’s Girl”

Pop sensation Ricky Martin is a father to twins, Matteo and Valentino, but now he is looking forward to adding another baby to his brood – a baby girl this time!

Telling UK newspaper The Guardian that he’d love to have “a daddy’s girl,” Ricky says he plans to go the surrogacy route again next year. “I’ll be steady in New York, and then, after I do the play [he’ll be starring in Evita], the baby [will be] born, and I’m going to be able to spend time with her.”

Ricky always had the urge to start a family years ago.

“OK, what are my options? Am I going to adopt? I just sat in front of the computer, doing research, until I found surrogacy, and I was like: ‘Woah! This looks really interesting,'” he reveals. “I interviewed so many people that were part of this beautiful world, and I decided this was going to be my way.”

There is no confirmation if the egg donor will be the same as his two sons.

Ricky Martin Dishes On Raising Twin Toddlers

Single dad Ricky Martin opens up about the joys of raising his twin boys, Valentino and Matteo, 2, and the lessons they are teaching him.

“Every day they teach me different things. The love is there. When you have a 2-year-old saying every other hour, ‘Papi, te amo. Papi, I love you,’ it can’t get better.”

“A lot of people say, ‘Wow, you’re a single father of twin boys, that’s crazy!’  Two toddlers can get hectic, but I wouldn’t change it for anything.”

On what his boys have taught him:

“Heavy lessons about simplicity and unconditional love. I don’t want to sound cliché, another father talking about unconditional love, but man, that’s the way it is. You hear it all the time, but when you feel this other branch of love getting stronger and stronger every day, it’s just amazing.”
