Ricky Martin Talks Twins & Expanding His Family

Is there a little girl in Ricky Martin's future? He hopes so! 

The Latin crooner dished on his growing family in a recent interview with People"I want daddy's little girl," he said. "[Being a parent] enhances everything. I'm only starting... I want more kids!" 

Martin, 42, is already the father to adorable twin boysValentino and Matteo, and the five-year-olds seem to enjoy their dad's pop star life. "They love being on the road," he said. "They're very musical kids and they are little artists. They're little mini-me's!" 

Are his niños considering a career on showbiz? "I don't know what's going to happen in the future, but whatever they choose and whatever they decide to become, I will be right there supporting them," he said. 

For now, Martin is content living life with his sons -- although he hasn't ruled out the possibility of romance. The singer has been single since he split with longtime boyfriend Carlos Gonzalez Abella in January. Now, he's looking for someone who "has the same vision in life."

"I am more of a dreamer," he said. "So I want someone that is a little bit more realistic than me... someone that can complement my creative madness and can bring me down when I'm in the middle of my creative chaos. I love commitment." 

Wishing Ricky the best of luck!
