Ricky Martin says he is considering adopting a child.

The star, who came out this year, already is already a father to twin sons he had with a surrogate mother.

Martin was appearing on CBS programme A Home for the Holidays, which raises awareness of adoption and children who need a loving home.

He told presenter Terri Seymour: “Even though I started with surrogacy, adoption is probably my next step.”

He added: “I had to be here as a father… 20,000 children have been beautifully impacted by this project. Adoption is beautiful. Give it a try!”
