It seems like we went back in time to the early '00s when Ricky Martin was Livin' La Vida Loca and he wouldn't directly answer Barbara Walters when she asked him if he was gay.
Well, the Puerto Rican hottie says he couldn't keep his sexuality a secret any longer.
Martin released this statement on his website:
"I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am."
Reports say the singer decided to reveal his homosexuality when he started writing his memoirs a few months ago.
Martin says"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."
He says the secret became "too heavy for me to keep inside" and his sexuality was "something worth celebrating."
Congratulations, Ricky! Good for you!
Martin is the father of two sons, Matteo and Valentino, from a surrogate mother.
Reports from various news websites say that the heartthrob didn't come out earlier because he wasn't sure how it would have affected his career.
Even though most of us had an inkling....especially when photos like this arose.
We really weren't for sure... in Hollywood anything goes, right? Celebrities are in their own world (take Matthew McConaughey for instance and his non-deodorant wearing ways).
I'm very proud of Ricky! It must have been so hard for him to keep this a secret.
