Ricky Martin celebrated his sons' first birthday by posting a series of family photos on his website.
The She Bangs singer, 37, announced in August 2008 that he was set to take a year away from the spotlight after becoming father of fraternal twins born to a surrogate mother.
And now he's showing off one-year-old boys Matteo and Valentino in a set of personal pictures, snapped on a beach in Miami, Florida.
He says of his boys, "I'm so happy! Everything they do, from smiling to crying, feels like a blessing. This has been the most spiritual moment in my life."
In the pictures, the 37 year old can be seen holding a child in each arm as they sit in the sand on the shore.
Another photo shows him giving one of the babies their first bath shortly after birth.
