Ricky Martin’s Rainbow Family

This man is just too cute to me. I don’t know what it is, but he has wormed his way into my heart. Oh wait, it’s how he looks in a tiny little bathing suit that I suspect came straight out of International Male. That’s right. I remember now. The Puerto Rican pop star is reiterating his interest in starting a family, by adopting children from various countries in the world.

“It’s something we want to begin to create this year, a family of many colors.”

His goal is to adopt a bevy of kiddos, possibly “one from each continent.” But the 35-year-old bachelor knows that it may end up being a complicated process–one that he’s willing to endure, to make sure that the adoption process is on the up-and-up.

“I want to do it right,” he said. “I don’t want any problems or misunderstandings. … Some think as celebrities we can manipulate the system to have a quicker adoption.”

Wait a minute, so as a celebrity you don’t get special treatment? Well, then, I guess I made the right decision years ago to eschew the fame that would have come along with a highly successful supermodel career that I decided to forgo for a life of blogging about celebrities. I made the right choice indeed.
