Ricky Martin‘s teenage twins, Matteo and Valentino, joined their father on stage for a pop-up performance of their own, and even the singer was surprised!
In a clip the San Juan-born singer shared to Instagram, Ricky was in the middle of performing overseas–in Locarno, Switzerland, to be exact–when his two boys suddenly appeared on stage beside him, dancing and clearly having a ball as they nearly towered over their father.
As soon as Ricky realized who came out to join him, he didn’t know what to do, looking flabbergasted on the stage as Matteo and Valentino hyped up the crowd with the biggest smiles on their faces.
“What a beautiful surprise!” Ricky exclaimed in the caption. “When my twins jumped on stage with me for the first time in Locarno, Switzerland 🇨🇭 . #Matteo y #Valentino 😭.”
It’s been a difficult time for Martin, who is in the middle of a divorce from his Jwan Yosef. The singer filed for divorce last Wednesday, July 5, before the Superior Court of California, indicating the date of separation as “TBD” (to be determined). He also stated the reason for their separation after six years: “irreconcilable differences.”
At this concert in Marbella, Martin shared a heartfelt message, saying he was going to leave his “soul on stage.” “I don’t know about you guys, but I want to have a good time and remember the old times. I want to celebrate and celebrate life, and I want you guys to do it with me. This record and this concert is filled with a lot of emotions, and you’re gonna see them all because vulnerability is in my skin” he told the crowd.
Ricky is reportedly seeking joint custody of his two youngest children, four-year-old Lucia and three-year-old Renn. He will continue to raise twins Matteo and Valentino, 14, as a single parent.
