Ricky Martin’s Son Matteo, 13, Is All Grown Up in Rare Photo

All grown up! Ricky Martin Jwan Yosef’s son Matteo joined his pop star father for a music video shoot — and the teenager was unrecognizable in the rare snap.

“Look who decided to accompany me to the filming of my new video,” Martin, 50, captioned the post, as translated from Spanish to English, of his 13-year-old giving a thumbs-up from a director’s chair on set. The “Livin La Vida Loca” singer doesn’t often share photos of the children he shares with husband Yosef, 37, but the behind-the-scenes shot gave fans a glimpse of their sweet bond.

Martin and Yosef share four kids — twins Matteo and Valentino, 13, daughter Lucia, 3, and son Renn, 2. Martin shared some details about his beloved brood, even though they keep their family life very private.

Talk with Ellen DeGeneres on her eponymous talk show last summer, the Puerto Rico native noted that their daughter effectively “runs the house,” despite her young age.

“The other day — she loves Cocomelon, so I’m singing with her [to] Cocomelon,” Martin shared in June 2021. “And she goes, ‘No, no, Daddy. No, stop. Stop, stop, stop.’ And I’m like, ‘Let me sing, I want to sing.’ She said, ‘No, no, Daddy. No, no, no, no.’ So she doesn’t let me sing!”

The “La Mordidita” crooner noted that his three boys “don’t have issues” with his singing or his career as a musician. “Actually, the big ones are telling me, ‘Come on, Dad. When are we going to go on the road again? When are we gonna do this?’” he said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “They’re really looking forward to it.”

After having their twin boys, Martin and his husband — who tied the knot in 2017 — welcomed baby girl Lucia in December 2018. Grammy winner Martin waited over a year before sharing the first Instagram photo of their little girl.

“La luz de mis ojos,” he captioned a December 2019 shot, calling the toddler the light of his eyes. “Mi bebita.”

Their fourth child, Renn arrived in October 2019, as their proud parents announced in a sweet photograph two months later. “Mi #babyRenn,” the MeThe caption was a black-and white photo of the adorable baby.

During an interview with Entertainment Tonight in November 2020, the “She Bangs” singer gushed about how “lucky” he and the Swedish painter were to have a family. “[Matteo and Valentino] are really cool kids,” he shared at the time. “They’re doing really good in school considering what we’re dealing with, and they have a beautiful little sister and a little brother, and they own that role of the protective older brothers. So, it’s very beautiful. I’m very, very proud of them.”

He continued: “Some people think I’m crazy, but I love a big family and I have a couple of embryos waiting for me. I don’t know. That’s all I got to say. Jwan is going crazy at the moment, but it’s OK, don’t tell him.”
