Ricky Martin is featured in Vanity Fair Espana this month along with his adopted twin boys Matteo and Valentino, and his longtime partner, Carlos Gonzalez Abella.

Of his children, now three and a half years old, he recently said that Matteo is "more alpha and a leader" type, while "Valentino is mister peace and love."

Martin came out as a content, gay man a few years ago. Check out some great pics of the 40-year-old, his partner of four years, and his children below ...

Born via surrogate in early August, Ricky Martin's four-month-old twin boys make their debut in this week's issue of People. Here are some quotes from the Puerto Rican hunk about the birth of his adorable sons and fatherhood in general:

Q: Describe this time in your life.

Ricky Martin:  I'm so happy! Everything they do, from smiling to crying, is a blessing. Being a father feels amazing. This has been the most spiritual moment in my life.

Ricky Martin and Twins!

Or depending on how you look at it, vice versa.

One would think, since the celebrity gossip magazines have been dropping massive amounts of cash for pictures of infants that all look identical, that Ricky Martin could expect a nice payday after welcoming his new twin sons.

Not the case.

According to the New York Daily News, the magazines all want the back story on the twins - namely why Ricky Martin used a surrogate mother - and the Latin heart throb is apparently unwilling to open up about that or other details.

It's not too surprising, as Martin has always been notoriously private when it comes to his personal line. We don't expect to see a photo shoot of Parker Foster Aiken, Jaymes Foster and Clay Aiken in OK! next month either.

Latin singing sensation Ricky Martin welcomed twin boys a few weeks ago via a surrogate mother, his PR peeps revealed this afternoon.

The 36-year-old Martin will take a year off from performing to be a full-time dad and raise the twins. Congrats to Ricky and his two little sons!

Proud Puerto Rican papa Ricky Martin is not the only popular singer to welcome a child through somewhat unconventional means this month.

On August 8, American Idol alum Clay Aiken, 29, and music producer friend Jaymes Foster, 50 welcomed a baby boy via artificial insemination.

Both have frequently been asked about their sexual orientation but are not on the record one way or the other, choosing to maintain privacy.
