Although Ricky Martin kept mum about his sexuality for years, the "Livin' La Vida Loca" hunk -- who is the proud father of twin boys -- finally came out in March 2010, and couldn't be happier about his decision. "Today, I'm in touch with who I am and I have the opportunity to be in front of a camera and talk to millions of people," he said in an interview with Parade. "After I wrote [my memoir Me] and went on Oprah Winfrey, so many people have come to me, telling me, 'Ricky, thank you because I understand what acceptance is today.' 'Ricky, thank you. I feel better about myself because you have a very beautiful family and the words 'dysfunctional family' don't exist in your life.'"
