Surprise! Ricky Martin And Husband Jwan Yosef Welcome Baby Girl
The singer and his husband Jwan Yosef announced on New Year’s Eve that they have welcomed their daughter Lucia Martin-Yosef into the world.
Announcing the happy news over both their Instagram accounts, Yosef first captioned a sweet snap of the baby's tiny hands, saying:
“We are beyond happy to announce that we have become parents to a beautiful and healthy baby girl, Lucia Martin-Yosef. It has been a special time for us and we can't wait to see where this stellar baby will take us. Both her beautiful brothers and me and Ricky have fallen in love with Lucia."
Ricky posted the same adorable image to his own account in an announcement to his followers.
“We are excited to announce that we have become parents of a beautiful and healthy girl whom we have named Lucia Martin-Yosef,” he wrote in Spanish.
“This has undoubtedly been a unique birthday and celebration of Christmas in our lives,” Martin continued. “Both her brothers and Jwan and I are completely in love with our baby and grateful to be able to start this 2019 with the best gift we could receive, the gift of life.”
Ricky is also a dad to nine-year-old twins, Matteo and Valentino, whom he is raising with his 34-year-old husband.
“My kids ask me about having two daddies and I tell them we are a part of a modern family,” Martin told Out magazine previously. “This is a beautiful sense of freedom.”
The pair's baby news comes one year after Martin announced that he and Yosef secretly tied the knot.
“I’m a husband, but we’re doing a heavy party in a couple of months,” he told E! News in January last year. “We exchanged vows, and we’ve swear [sic] everything, and we’ve signed all the papers that we needed to sign, prenups and everything … It feels amazing! I can’t introduce him as my fiancé. I can’t. He’s my husband. He’s my man.”
