Birthday Gallery: Ricky Martin Turns 42

Ricky Martin has been in the public eye for 30 years, having achieved worldwide success as a member of boyband Menudo, then making the difficult transition to adult superstardom.

It’s been almost four years since he publicly came out, and Ricky has achieved enormous success in that time on the world stage, on Broadway, and in his personal life, where he’s dad to sons Matteo and Valentino.

Today is his birthday, and what better to celebrate Christmas than by unwrapping a gallery of pics from his life and career.
