Ricky Martin opened up about what he went through when he announced that he is gay.
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.”
