Ricky Martin set to wed long term love in Spain

Friday November 4, 2011

Ricky Martin is set to marry his boyfriend in Spain after being granted Spanish citizenship, reports Spanish newspaper El Pais

Born in Puerto Rico, Ricky has lived in the United States for many years. 

The singer chose to apply to become a Spanish national in order to marry his long-term partner Carlos Gonzalez in the European country, which permits same sex marriage.

He was granted citizenship due to owning a residence in Madrid and having a Spanish grandmother.

The Latin singer has two children, twins Matteo and Valentino, both three years old.

He has previously spoken of his happiness with his children and economist partner.

Last year he told Oprah "all I can say is he loves my children and they love him. It can't get better".
