Ricky Martin admits he's gay - Finally!!!

Ricky Martin GayJust a few hours ago (March 29, 2010), Latin Pop Superstar Ricky Martin has ended the 10-year-old rumor that he's gay.

On his official site, the Puerto Rican singer who gave the world smash hits like 'Livin' La Vida Loca' and 'She Bangs', has posted an entry (in Español) that he is indeed gay:

"Estoy orgulloso de decir que soy un afortunado hombre homosexual. Estoy orgullos deser quien soy. [I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am]," he confessed.

So why it took him 10 years to admit it? In 2000, when asked about the gay rumors, Ricky said that the rumors were started by people who don't have a life or perhaps it's because they wanted him to be like them.

And this 2010, the rumors turn out to be true. According to Ricky, his admission got something to do with him being a father to his 19-month-old twins Matteo and Valentino (born via gestational surrogacy). "Today I take full responsibility for my decisions and my actions... Enough is enough. This has to change. This wasn't supposed to happen 5 or 10 years ago. It's supposed to happen now. Today is my
day, this is my time and this is my moment," he said.

On his Twitter account, Ricky M tweeted a meaningful quote from Martin Luther King Jr (both in Spanish and English) then a short tweet "my life - my vida" with a link to his blog entry.
