Ricky Martin's a dad!

The Latin superstar, 36, welcomed twin boys via a surrogate mother a few weeks ago, his rep tells Usmagazine.com in a statement.

"The children, delivered via gestational surrogacy, are healthy and already under Ricky's full-time care," the statement read. "Ricky is elated to begin this new chapter in his life as a parent and will be spending the remainder of the year out of the public spotlight in order to spend time with his children."

No further details were released. The Associated Press first reported the news.

Over the years, Martin has refused to confirm or deny rumors that he's gay. "I think that sexuality is something that each individual should deal with in their own way," he told Barbara Walters in 2005. "And that's all I have to say about that."
