Ricky Martin's house seems to be full of love and warmth. We just can't get over the fact of how beautiful this family-of-four is—Martin, his twin boys Matteo and Valentino, and Martin's husband, Jwan Yusef:

Recently, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story actor revealed to OUT that his children asked him why they had two dads. His answer was sweet and simple:

"A lot of people tell me, ‘Well, your kids are on the covers of magazines and blah, blah, blah,’ and I'm like, ‘Yes because I want to normalize this.' I want people to look at me and see a family and say, ‘There’s nothing wrong with that.’ It's part of my mission. It’s part of my kids’ mission as well. My kids ask me about having two daddies and I tell them we are a part of a modern family. This is a beautiful sense of freedom."

In the interview, he also mentioned that he doesn't mind making his personal life public because it's part of his mission—for people to start accepting them for what they are: a family.

Ricky has worked hard to normalize family diversity that when he was promoting his single Adios, he revealed that his children already know the way they came into the world.

This is how the Puerto Rican singer explained it to his kids:

"There was a woman that I adore with all my heart that helped me bring you into this world. She lent me her belly so that you could come and when you were born she put you in my arms."

Jwan, Ricky, and their children have schooled us about the real meaning of family: people united by love.
