Singer Ricky Martin and husband Jwan Yosef's family is getting bigger. On Saturday, Sept. 28, the 47-year-old "Livin' La Vida Loca" singer announced that he and his husband are expecting their fourth child together via surrogate. Martin announced the exciting news on-stage while accepting the HRC National Visibility Award at the 23rd annual Human Rights Campaign National Dinner in Washington D.C.
"My family's here," Martin said. "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. I love you. Lucia, my baby girl who is not here with us, she stayed at home with Grandma, but she's also the light of my life."
"And by the way, I have to announce that we are pregnant. We are waiting," he added. "Alright! I love big families."

Yes, I do want a big family, but there's a lot going on at the moment with a lot of work, wedding, it's a lot going on. So we're going to put things in order first and then we're going to get ready for many more kids."
