Ricky Martin Dishes on his Perfect Partner

Puerto Rican pop star Ricky Martin recently spoke to ABC Español about what he looks for in an ideal mate and he is quite demanding, although, he has every right to be!

Martin admitted that since becoming a father his requirements for a relationship are much more strict since he has to consider two-year-old twins Valentino and Matteo in every decision he makes now. So what qualities is he looking for in the perfect man? Well, he has to be a refined gentleman, and he has to be confident. "With everything I've been through to get to where I am today, the man I am with has to be sure of himself." But the most important personality trait is a sense of humor.

Although rumors are circulating that he may be ready to marry his boyfriend of two years, 33-year-old Carlos González Abella, Rick said that he had no plans on tying the know until it was legal to do so in his native homeland of Puerto Rico, where as Martin put it, "I was born and I'm going to die."

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
