Posted in Pregnancy Announcements.

Ricky Martin and his husband Jwan Josef are parents to three gorgeous kiddos, and the superstar singer has just revealed that a fourth is on the way! 

Baby number four

Ricky was in Washington DC to receive an award for his LGBTQI advocacy at the Human Rights Campaign National Dinner over the weekend after he spilled these very exciting baby beans.

As he gave his acceptance speech, Ricky went full mush, paying tribute to his husband and family and telling the audience that he had very big news.

“My husband Jwan, I love you, my beautiful twins, Valentino and Matteo, they’re also here, I love you with all my heart, you’re my strength, you inspire me every day, you motivate me to keep doing what I’m doing and you guys are amazing kids,” an emotional Ricky said, People magazine reports.

“You guys are amazing. I love you … And by the way, I have to announce that we are pregnant. We are waiting,” he said proudly. “I love big families.”

Ricky’s sons Matteo and Valentino are now 11 and he and Jwan are raising them together.

The couple also have an eight-month-old daughter named Lucia who understandably did not attend this special awards dinner. 

All the babies, please!

This new baby news comes as no surprise to Ricky’s followers as he’s previously spoken about having alllll the babies!

“I want four more pairs of twins. I would love to have a big family, but there’s a lot going on at this moment, a lot of work,” he told reporters at last year’s Golden Globes, People magazine reports.

“It’s a lot going on so we’re going to put things in order first and then we are going to get ready for many more kids.”

Ricky and Syrian-Swedish painter Jwan first began dating back in April of 2016.

The couple got engaged in November of the same year and things continued to move swiftly.

In January of 2018, the couple announced that they had tied the knot and daughter Lucia was born in December of the same year.

We’re not sure when this baby is due, but we do know that they’ve got a very doting family waiting to meet them!
