The Spanish-language tabloids are claiming that Ricky Martin may be seeking Spanish citizenship in order to make his relationship with longtime boyfriend Carlos Gonzalez official.

His good friend, Spanish model Esther Cañadas, has reportedly even offered up her house so that Ricky can have a place to stay while he applies for citizenship. The whispers began just weeks after the Puerto Rican pop star openly confirmed his relationship with Gonzalez by thanking him at the GLAAD awards. He may even be planning a move to the motherland since same-sex marriage is legal there.

Martin has yet to confirm the wedding bells, telling the media coyly, "It would be lovely, but there are no plans at the moment to marry." Gonzalez was front and center as Ricky kicked off his world tour in San Juan, so marriage or not—they are definitely going strong!

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.
