Ricky Martin 'Planning To Wed Boyfriend'
Latino pop star reportedly preparing to marry partner
Ricky Martin is reported to have been granted Spanish citizenship, with the intention of using the country's same-sex marriage laws to wed his partner Carlos Gonzalez.
Spanish newspaper El Pais broke the story, claiming that he was not asked to renounce his Puerto Rican or US citizenship - which is apparently quite unusual.
The singer who is father to three-year-old twin boys Matteo and Valentino, has been dating Carlos for four years.
He has previously suggested he wanted to get married, saying: "I would get married… There are many countries around the world where same-sex marriage is a right. Not in Puerto Rico, unfortunately. And not in many states in America."
Ricky came out as gay in 2009.
