Martin welcomed Matteo and his twin brother Valentino in 2008.
The older children of the former Minudo member were born via surrogacy.
At the time, the singer indicated that he was considering adoption, although he chose to work with a surrogate to bring his children into his life in a faster fashion.
He later started a relationship with his current husband and second father to twins Jwan Yusef in 2016.

The artist discussed his previous years during an interview with Out and stated that he had previously feared not being able to start a family due to his sexuality prior to his release in 2010.
“For many years I dreamed of being a father, and a lot of times I went through this sad process because like me, I am a closed gay man, and I would never be able to be a father,’ he said.
He noted that while he supported the idea of LGBT couples adopting, he was aware of the hardships that many of them face.
“Obviously adoption is an option and it’s very beautiful, but unfortunately for gay men it’s very difficult to adopt in some countries,” he said.

Martin went on to discuss how his children supported him when he called for the resignation of Puerto Rico’s then-governor, Ricardo Rossello, in 2019.
“One of the things I will always take with me is that after the protests of those days, my children will be waiting for me to come home,” he said.
“I knew they would become revolutionaries because of our passion for social justice and fairness for all,” he added.
