Ricky Martin opens up about his homosexuality

Ricky Martin, the Puerto Rico-born super star has publicly revealed his sexual orientation for the first time: “I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.”

And another one bites the dust…

Martin, since the beginning denied the rumors about his homosexuality. Apparently he was told that the revelation would hurt his career.

Now, the 38-year-old star and proud father of two beautiful babies, has got to the point where he felt ready to come out of the closet and open up about that very intimate part of his personal life.

The artist is currently working on an autobiography, and that exercise made him realize the need to tell the truth to the world in order to move on with his life:

“From the moment I wrote the first phrase I was sure the book was the tool that was going to help me free myself from things I was carrying within me for a long time. Things that were too heavy for me to keep inside,” he said. “Writing this account of my life, I got very close to my truth. And this is something worth celebrating.”

Martin released a statement where he addressed the issue. It must be very tough to live up to some expectations, and to keep secretively such an important part of your personal life. Good for him! Although this is a very sad day for the ladies…Martin is too gorgeous!
