Ricky Martin on Oprah: Homosexuality, fatherhood, and la vida loca
Martin told Oprah that his decision to come out of the closet via a post on his website was because he reached a personal breaking point. "I couldn't take it anymore, Oprah!" he says. "I couldn't take it anymore. It was too painful."
His two children, 2-year-old twins Valentino and Matteo, inspired him. "What am I gonna teach them, how to lie?" he says. "Before I decided to become a father I already accepted who I was and I was happy with who I was."
