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!
