'Puerto Rican' popstar Ricky Martin, who fathered two children with a surrogate mother two years ago, has finally put an end to the speculation over his sexuality by admitting that he is gay. He said that he had kept his sexuality hidden so far because his advisers had told him coming out could hurt his career.
Now, Ricky Martin has confirmed his longtime gay rumors on his official website. The pop singer writes, "I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am. Today, I have accepted my homosexuality as a gift that gives me life."
Martin, 38, told his fans that his decision to divulge his sexual orientation was an amazing turning point in his life and it started a few months ago when he began the process of writing his memoirs. He says that his decision to write his memoirs had helped him to free "things that were too heavy to keep inside".
