He revealed that having children determined him to make this step and not wanting to lie any longer.

In an interview for Oprah he said: “When I realized, okay, I just pressed send, whoo… I was alone. I was in my studio alone for a minute. My assistant walked in and I just started crying like a little baby. I started crying.”

He added that he felt numb at first but then relieved he got the secret on his chest.

“I couldn’t take it anymore. It was too painful. But I guess the most important thing is my children… When I was holding them in my arms I was like, ‘What, am I gonna teach them how to lie?’ Whoa, that is my blessing right there. Then, when I was holding my children I said, ‘Okay, it’s time to tell the world.'”

The Latin singer is set to release his memoir called “Me” on November 2.

He told CNN that: “From the moment I wrote the first phrase, I was sure the book was the tool that was going to help me free myself from things I was carrying within me for a long time. Things that were too heavy for me to keep inside. Writing this account of my life, I got very close to my truth. And this is something worth celebrating.”
