Mini Ricky Martin guru

Singer Ricky Martin

Singer Ricky Martin believes his son Valentino “meditates”.

The Livin La Vida Loca has three-year-old twins, Matteo and Valentino, and has revealed the boys have very different personalities despite their genetic connection.

Ricky says Valentino is obsessed with nature and he believes when the tot goes off to explore the family garden he is finding peace with the natural world.

The pop heart-throb – who had the kids with a surrogate mother – says, “Valentino is mister peace and love. He loves flowers and nature. If I ever wonder where he is, he’ll be somewhere behind the bushes covered in mud.

“I know this sounds crazy, but I think he mediates. He goes under the water. I’m like, ‘He’s gone. He’s travelling right now.’ He’s very Zen and noble.

“Matteo, on the other hand, much prefers to take charge – even if it’s over his own brother!

“He’s more alpha and a leader. He’s like, ‘You don’t do that, this is what you do.’ He tells his brother what to do and what not to do.”
