has revealed that he is a gay man.
Martin — who has dodged questions of his sexuality for years — just posted the following message on his official website: “I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.”
Martin says the birth of his twin sons led to his decision to come out — and according to the singer,
“To keep living as I did up until today would be to indirectly diminish the glow that my kids where [sic] born with.”
Ricky’s kids were born in August 2008.
