Ricky Martin says his twin sons are a handful but he’d love to have a “daddy’s girl”.

The gay star had sons Matteo and Valentino by a surrogate mother in 2008.

He told Miami radio station Y100: “Fatherhood is incredible! Every day is something different.

“Matteo and Valentino, they’re constantly ganging up on me but I can take it! They’re amazing – I want more. This is only the beginning of our family.”

When asked how many children he would like, Martin said: “I don’t know. Maybe one, two more, but yeah, definitely. I need [a] daddy’s girl.”

He added that becoming a father had changed his life, not least his sleeping patterns.

“Babies wake up every two hours,” he said. “At 7 o’clock you are awake. For me, I was a night owl in the past, but now, I’m up, I’m working, I’m already dealing with the kids.”
