Ricky Martin Has Mysterious Twin Boys

Uhhhh … okay.

Um, out of nowhere, we learn that Ricky Martin is the father of twin boys, to whom a surrogate gave birth. Nobody is talking about who this surrogate is, or who the mother is, or really what the fuck is going on here. You know Ricky called some overseas sex trade agency asking them to send over two young boys, and when they finally arrived, he was all like, “Shit, dude, I didn’t mean that young. How the fuck am I going to explain this?”

Says Ricky’s rep: “The children, delivered via gestational surrogacy, are healthy and already under Ricky’s full-time care. Ricky is elated to begin this new chapter in his life as a parent and will be spending the remainder of the year out of the public spotlight in order to spend time with his children.”

Oh, okay, never mind. Ricky was actually just looking for a reasonable explanation for why he’s out of the spotlight. Um, Rickster? You’re about seven years late with that, buddy.

Good luck to Ricky — and to those boys!

  • damn beet, WTF?

    Just because he’s gay doesn’t make him a pedophile. You do know his foundation fights the exploitation of children, right?
    I love snarky shit as much as anyone, but I’m not finding humor here.

  • Hey Okay, sip on this nice hot cup of SHUT THE FUCK UP and go sit your sensative ass down somewhere. She was joking around, damn.

  • umm isn’t it a little uncalled for to call him a pedophile when he is actually an advocate against the trafficking of young children for sexual enslavement?

    A tad bit over the top there beat….even for you..

  • chill people, what, Beets snarky comments are ok as long as she stays away from gays?? she could’ve said the same thing about Brad Pitt and no one would be up in arms because it’d be a JOKE

  • If one were to shave Ricky Martin and plaster a bit of make up on him he would bear a striking resemblance to Jessica Simpson… Just a thought.

  • I don’t have a problem with Ricky Martin as a father, but I can’t decide whether the phrase “delivered via gestational surrogacy” is more laughable or creepy. A woman gave birth–that’s how it usually happens. No one thinks Ricky somehow had these babies himself. So why the need for the euphemistic techno-speak? Celeb reps are so ridiculous.

  • the other odd part of the quote was that he will be spending the remainder of the year out of the public spotlight. when was he in the public spotlight this year other than this announcement?

  • I was recently talking to an old gay man. He commented on how much easier things were now. He married a woman because despite being gay the urge to create a family was incredibly strong. He really wanted a family, so lived a double life for a long time.

  • I know people here only fixate on cuffs on jeans, shoes, and dresses, and have no idea what it is to perform or survive in a business that is as dirty and cutthroat as Showbusiness, but this guy is not only good looking, but a really talented performer. He is also the consumate entertainer and he has been doing that since he is a kid.

    I don’t understand why people like to tear other people down in the form of slander, which is still a punishable offence, if they ever find a way to prosecute blog visitors on the net — look out!

    Otherwise I don’t care about his preference because I expect it will never touch my life. He can afford to raise children and give them a good life and I hope he does that successfully. We should all be so lucky.

  •’s kinda like if M. Jackson had trouble sireing a heir and hired the surrogate daddy’s magic part too, oh… wait…?
