Ricky Martin shot to success with his hit "Livin' la Vida Loca" and it also put him right in the line of many questions about his personal life due to his large gay following. In 2008, the singer became the father of twin boys, Matteo and Valentino via a surrogate which led to his 2010 confession that he was gay. "I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am." When speaking about what took him so long to speak out, Martin told Larry King, "Everything about saying [that I am gay] feels right...if I'd known how good it was going to feel, I would have done it ten years ago."
