Idiot, Clay did NOT go to the media with news of his child..... TMZ bribed his babymama's clinic for private information & published it. Clay & Jaymes were not going to announce the child or until after the birth, you moron. In fact, they weren't going to publicize any details that are NO ONE'S BUSINESS, either. Blame that jerk, Harvey Levin, for his immoral ways. Both Clay & Ricky will be wonderful fathers because they actually CARE about children & prove it every day of their lives, unlike you.

Unbelievable    

Uhmmm if this is not SOLID gold proof this dude is a pillow-biter, I am not sure what is.
I mean many many women would have offered him their bodies for free, and he couldn't even bring himself near a woman enough to conceive a child the natural way???
I now put him in the same weridness group as Gay Aiken.

Let me ask everyone a question. When a woman want's to have a baby by herself and goes to a sperm bank - do you consider her gay. No. She's just a woman who has probably stop looking for a GOOD man and cuts out the middle man and decides to have a baby herself. I think wth Ricky, there probably isn't a good woman out there who wouldn't be after his money or whatever and didn't want to take the chance to loose every he has worked for. So he hired this surragate, used his own sperm to make sure the kids are klegal his and that's that. Instant family without the bother of marriage, divorce or alimony. I say good for him

Ricky is not a "has been".

After Menudo, he has been working in Spanish records. Just because he hasn't do it in English, does not mean that he is not making music: Ricky Martin (1991), Me amaras (1993), A Medio Vivir (1995), Vuelve (1998), Ricky Martin (1999, 1st English record), Sound Loaded (2000), Almas del Silencio (2003), Life (2005), MTV Unplugged (2006), Black and White Tour (2007).

Vuelve gave him a US Grammy (By the way, for the persons that think the US is the center of the Universe: there are latin grammys as well).

He stills been recognized as one of the biggest performers of Latin America. His album Almas del Silencio debuted at number twelve on the Billboard 200, reached number one on the Latin Albums charts and stayed there for six weeks. It had collaborations from the greatest Spanish composers: Alejandro Sanz, Ricardo Arjona, Juanes, Franco de Vita, Emilio Estefan...

MTV Unplugged debuted number one in the Billboard Latin Charts... We can continue and we will not stop. People, if you do not educate yourself before making comments, you look like a complete ignorant.

So this woman sold her infants to homosexual men. God save her soul. Not. If there's a hell, but first hell on earth for these kids. In any event, these kids will be indoctrinated early about the homosexual life and private not so private life that they will think it's all quite normal. Daddy will make sure they hear him humping away, maybe even let them watch. You know, no inhibitions, no hiding, let it all hang out.

Twins: Daddy, are we gay too?

Daddy: Sure you are son, don't you want to be like daddy?

We can't learn from history, we keep trying so hard to be like Sodom and Gomorrah and then some. God bless us all.

Not gay and he said so.
RMTEE archived articles 2000 (07-2001), Look 2000, By Sally Morgan, The Look 2000 " So what about all these rumours? "There's not a lot I can do about that," he says, wriggling in his seat slightly. "I guess these rumours were started by people who don't have a life, or perhaps it's because they want me to be like them and I'M NOT. I try not to pay attention to any of these allegations. I could have been married with kids for years or have 27 girlfriends, and if people still want to go around saying that I'm gay, they will."

To Livin la vida Homo

Many men are having kids this way because if they break up, the women usually gets the kid. An unlike some trailor trash, most people want to find the right person to settle down with, not just grab anyone and make them their wife so they can have a kid.

Look it up! Having kids this way is becoming more and more popular with single/divorce/widowed STRAIGHT men.

To Voice of Reason
Do you have proof he is gay???????????
NO!! and he has said he is straight repeatedly. See his interviews. See the Pulse interview on YouTube. See his wiki page.
He can say straight for ever and no one believes him and calls him liar, so he said he stopped answering for a time to get people to stop verbally attacking him everytime he was out with friends and even young family members.
Poor Ricky is the victim of sick cruel jealous people who are desperate for him to be gay.
Get a life.

PS why is TMZ deleting so many facts
