Oprah Winfrey London, Oct 31 (IANS) Latin singer Ricky Martin, who guarded his sexuality and personal life for years, will be seen sharing all on a talk show ahead of the release of his autobiography “Me”.

For the first time Ricky welcomed cameras to his home for a candid portrait of his happy family home life for his interview with Oprah Winfrey for her talk show where he will be seen sharing information about his sons and his sexuality for the first time, reports

The 39-year-old Puerto Rican singer became father of twin boys - Matteo and Valentino - in August 2008. Previously, the star has only released occasional pictures of himself with the two gorgeous children via his official Twitter account, then ‘came out’ on his website in March this year.

But he has never before opened up about becoming father or finally going public with his sexuality.

Before he came out as gay, the Livin’ La Vida Loca star had a 14-year on-off relationship with Mexican TV host Rebecca de Alba. However, they split for good in 2005.

The singer had previously refused to comment on speculation that he was gay, saying: “I don’t think I should say whether I’m gay or not, or who I’ve slept with or not.”

Oprah’s interview with Martin will be aired in the US Tuesday.

Ricky will also appear on The View the day after.
