It would be difficult for anyone to look more relaxed — or prouder — than Ricky Martin. Weather he’s carrying his adorable twin boys Valentino and Matteo or laying with them on a beach, he looks to be in his element as he celebrates their 1st birthday in Miami.

The boys were born to a surrogate mother last year and 37-year-old Ricky has been bringing them up on his own — with help off his mum when the demands sometimes get too much.
Ricky: I wanted to feed them, bathe them and burp them all with no help. Mum said: ‘Okay, enough is enough, please, can I burp the child? It’s not about you, it’s about the baby.’ So that’s when I realised there was nothing to be ashamed about asking for help.
The singer is now believed to be in the process of recording a new album and will be taking the boys on the road with him when it comes time to tour and promote it.
R: They love music and I say: ‘Get ready babies, because your life is going to be about music. There’s music playing in my house 24 hours a day. I can’t be on the road, knowing they’re back at home. That just doesn’t compute. My kids will be with me always.
