Ricky Martin is keeping his options open about expanding his family: ‘I have a couple of embryos waiting for me’
He already has twin sons Matteo and Valentino, 12, daughter Lucia, two, and son Renn, one, with his husband Jwan Yosef.
But Ricky Martin isn’t quite sure his family is complete yet.
The 48-year-old hitmaker revealed to Entertainment Weekly on Wednesday that he is still on the fence about having more children.
Ricky said: ‘Some people think I’m crazy but I love a big family, and I have a couple of embryos waiting for me.

‘Jwan is going crazy at the moment, but it’s okay – don’t tell him!’
He also said that things have been ‘getting funky’ at home, as his eldest children begin to enter their teenage years.
Martin said: ‘Pre-adolescence is here and it’s getting funky. And on top of that, we’re dealing with lockdown and it’s, “Grr… get out of the way! This is my room, not yours, blah blah.”
‘You know, it’s all part of it. But these two are really cool kids.’

He added: ‘They’re doing really good in school considering what we’re dealing with and they have a beautiful little sister and a little brother and they own that role of the protective older brothers. So it’s very beautiful.’
Ricky acknowledged that he is ‘very lucky to have the family that I have’ and explained how his daughter is the queen of his household.
He said: ‘It’s not their house either, it’s the girl’s house. It’s Lucia’s house. She runs the house.

‘She doesn’t snap fingers yet but in the eyes you can tell she’s like “No”. She’s only two, by the way.’
Meanwhile, Ricky previously explained how he and Jwan have considered adoption to raise more children.
The She Bangs singer said: ‘Many years I dreamt of being a father, and many, many, many times I went through this grieving process of “I am gay, I am a closeted gay man, and I’m not going to be able to be a daddy.”
‘Obviously adoption is an option and it’s very beautiful, but unfortunately for gay men it’s very difficult to adopt in some countries.’
