Last month, Ricky announced that he and Jwan were expecting again.
While accepting the National Visibility Award for his advocacy of LGBTQ rights at the Human Rights Campaign National Dinner in Washington, Ricky said, “My family's here. Jwan, I don't see you, but my husband, Jwan, I love you. My beautiful twins, Valentino and Matteo, they're also here. I love you with all my heart, you're my strength, you inspire me every day, you motivate me to keep doing what I'm doing and you guys are amazing kids. You guys are amazing."
After giving a shout-out to their daughter Lucia, 10 months, Ricky added, “And by the way, I have to announce that we are pregnant. We are waiting. Alright! I love big families."
The baby announcement came just a month after Ricky shared the first photo of Lucia.
Earlier this year, Martin expressed his desire for a big family. He told "Extra" at the Golden Globes, “I want a big family, we want a big family, it's been beautiful.” This is just the beginning, the singer said, noting, "We're only starting.”
Martin was a dad before he met Yosef in 2016, having welcomed his twin sons via surrogacy eight years earlier. He told People magazine, “Surrogacy was an intriguing and faster option. I thought, 'I'm going to jump into this with no fear.'”
As for fatherhood, Ricky said, “Everything they do, from smiling to crying, feels like a blessing. Being a father feels amazing. This has been the most spiritual moment in my life.”
