Pop star Ricky Martin has adopted twin boys born to a surrogate mother.

Martin, 36, who is currently single, plans to take a long break from show business to raise the kids.

In a statement, the "Livin' La Vida Loca" singer-turned-humanitarian's spokesperson says, "The children, delivered via gestational surrogacy, are healthy and already under Ricky's full-time care.

"Ricky is elated to begin this new chapter in his life as a parent and will be spending the remainder of the year out of the public spotlight in order to spend time with his children."

Martin joins the ranks of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and fellow Puerto Ricans Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, who also became parents of twins this year.
