'I have accepted my homosexuality as a gift'

Last updated on: March 30, 2010 10:40 IST

Putting an end to years of speculation over his sexuality, pop star Ricky Martin has admitted that he is gay.

Martin, who fathered two children with a surrogate mother two years ago, stated on his website that he felt "blessed to be who he was", reports The BBC.

Martin said: 'Today I have accepted my homosexuality as a gift that gives me life.'

The Puerto Rican star known for hip-shaking Latin pop hits like 1999's Livin' La Vida Loca, said his decision to write his memoirs had helped him to free 'things that were too heavy to keep inside'.
