Ricky Martin --

'I Am a

Fortunate Homosexual'

3/29/2010 5:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


RickyRicky Martin
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.

He's lovely from what I can tell and, yes, his silence spoke volumes though it was nobody's business. It's hard to hide being "a family" so likely the reason to come out with the babies now toddlers. Would like to see him have another hit like "La Vida Loka" though maybe that wouldn't be acceptable to the gay community?

For the person commenting regarding Levin, it surprises me that anyone would think otherwise as I don't think he attempts to hide anything.

geezz....everybody is going "gay"..... and it's like all hot guys are gay.... I always thought he was hot. He is gay and I guess proud of it. Well I am STR8T and VERY proud of it!!!(Don't hate on me, I wont hate on you) I really think he should have adopted. There are plenty of kids who need good homes.
