The baby New Year! As clocks counted down the final hours of 2018, Ricky Martin and his husband Jwan Yosef made a very special announcement to the world. The 47-year-old Grammy-winner and his 34-year-old love revealed that they have welcomed a new addition into their home. “We are beyond happy to announce that we have become parents to a beautiful and healthy baby girl, Lucia Martin-Yosef,” Ricky penned on his Instagram along with an adorable photo that featured the infant holding both of her father’s thumbs.

“It has been a special time for us and we can’t wait to see where this stellar baby will take us,” he continued to write in both Spanish and English. Then touching on the rest of his family, he said: “Both her beautiful brothers and me and Jwan have fallen in love with Lucia.”
In Spanish only, the Livin’ La Vida Loca crooner added: “This has undoubtedly been a unique birthday and celebration of Christmas in our lives. Both her brothers and Jwan and I are completely in love with our baby and grateful to be able to start this 2019 with the best gift we could receive, the gift of life.”
Jwan posted the same sweet photo and caption of the tiny tot in her pale onesie to his own profile. The couple’s celebrity friends joined fans in wishing them a very big congratulations. Eva Longoria was overwhelmed with excitement, writing: “Ahhhhhhh! Great photo!!!! Love you both so much and can’t wait to meet her!!”
Meanwhile, Ricky’s The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story co-star Edgar Ramírez left an emoji-clad comment in Spanish, which translates to: “Yes! Congratulations, my dears! What a great joy! Welcome, Lucia! It’s a girl!” Zoe Saldana took to Jwan’s post to deliver the “biggest congratulations.” She cutely added: “Welcome to the world Queen Lucia!”
