Puerto Rican superstar Ricky Martin gave his legion of fans a glimpse of his stunning home in Los Angeles. He shares the property with his partner, artist Jwan Yosef.
In 2018, Ricky Martin gave Architectural Digest a tour of their Beverly Hills home. Yosef's favorite artwork decorates the walls, and Martin's Grammy collection is on display in the family room.
In addition, the couple shows the kitchen, a soundproof screening room, a huge hallway, an indoor porch, the master bedroom, a gigantic closet, a zen-inspiring fire pit, and their art studio.
Martin told AD that he met Yosef in London in 2016, and shortly afterward, the artist joined him and his sons, Valentino and Matteo, as they traveled across the globe on Martin's One World Tour.
In three days, they visited more than 20 homes before settling on this blissful, modern home designed by architect Gregory Ain for psychiatrist Fred Feldman and his wife Elaine in 1953.
Both Martin and Yosef are art collectors, and it shows in their house. There's plenty of art displayed throughout their home. They enlisted designer Nate Berkus' help only two months prior to moving in.
Martin and Yosef exchanged their wedding vows in 2017, but they only confirmed their marriage a year later.
Aside from twins Valentino and Matteo, the two are also doting parents to daughter Lucia and son Renn. Martin once told Out magazine that they have considered adoption to expand their family.
"Many years I dreamt of being a father, and many, many, many times I went through this grieving process of 'I am gay, I am a closeted gay man, and I'm not going to be able to be a daddy,'" he said.
Martin had not come out as gay when Matteo and Valentino were born via a surrogate in August 2008. The singer revealed his sexual orientation in 2010.
Martin once said that Matteo and Valentino inspired him to be honest with the world. From 2008 to 2014, he was in a relationship with Carlos González Abella. After the split, he began dating Yosef.
Martin and Yosef exchanged their wedding vows in 2017, but they only confirmed their marriage a year later. In 2018, they announced the birth of their daughter Lucía.
In late September of 2019, Martin and Yosef announced that they are expecting their fourth child together. In October, they announced the birth of their son Renn.
