Ricky Martin on Valentino and Matteo
Ricky Martin, who will soon be taking his final bow in Broadway's Evita, is dad to twin boys Matteo and Valentino. The duo came into the world via a surrogate mother in 2008.
Martin discussed the boys' distinct personalities in a recent interview with The Advocate: "Valentino is mister peace and love. He loves flowers and nature. If I ever wonder where he is, he'll be somewhere behind the bushes covered in mud. He's just at one with nature. I know this sounds crazy, but I think he meditates. He's very Zen and noble." Of Matteo, Martin says: "He's more alpha and a leader. He's like, 'You don't do that, this is what you do.' He tells his brother what to do and what not to do."
