Ricky Martin Explores Vegas, Twins in Tow

Ricky Martin is living "la vida loca" in Vegas these days. Since this past April, everyone's favorite gay Puerto Rican hearthrob has been shaking his bon-bon at the Park Theater at Monte Carlo Resort and Casino. And as he told Paper Magazine in their latest issue, he and his 9-year-old twins have been having a blast exploring the City of Lights.

Paper journalist Hazelhurst writes:

"Martin is engaged to Syrian-Swedish painter Jwan Yosef and is the father of nine-year-old twin sons, Matteo and Valentino, who travel with Martin everywhere, including Vegas ("We went to see Michael Jackson ONE by Cirque du Soleil," he says excitedly, adding, "We love Michael Jackson"). Martin seems to live such an idyllic family life, it's easy to forget it was only seven years ago when the star felt he could publicly come out. "I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am," he wrote on his website back in 2010, to an overwhelmingly positive response."
