Martin welcomed his twins via surrogate in 2008 as a single dad. After marrying then-husband Jwan Yosef in 2017, the couple welcomed daughter Lucia, 5, and son Renn, 4, via surrogate, just nine months apart.

Before having kids, the singer-songwriter had long shared his desire to grow his family, but the world hadn't made it easy for him.

"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 once told Out magazine.

He's also been open about having more kids, saying he isn't opposed to the idea.

"There's moments where I want 10 more, and then there are those mornings where everybody's crying and I'm like, 'Okay, maybe we're fine at six [people in the family],' " Martin said in 2020.

This past July, Ricky and his husband shared that they were divorcing after six years of marriage. In a statement, the couple revealed that their children were their priority amidst the split.

"Our greatest desire now is to continue having a healthy family dynamic and a relationship centered on peace and friendship to continue the joint upbringing of our children," it read in part.
