rickykidsHow did Ricky Martin’s twin sons’ react when they learned of their dad’s fame?

Ricky told “People” that, although his kids had seen him perform from backstage, it was a while before they fully realized. He said “One day, when I thought that they were big enough, I said, ‘Go to the front of the house,’ and they see the lights and the whole spectacle.”

“When the show was over, they came to me and said, ‘Papi, you’re Ricky Martin.’ I said ‘I’m not Ricky Martin, I’m your father.’ They said, ‘No, no, no, you’re Ricky Martin,’ and so it changed.”

Apparently, the awe of their father didn’t last forever — Ricky also explained that his kids are often his toughest critics.

“It’s as raw and honest as you can receive from an 8-year-old. They go, ‘Dad, that movement I don’t like. Dad, that song, you gotta change it,’ and they bring good points. I tell them, ‘Son, that’s something that I will consider.’ ”
