Ricky Martin opens up about marriage equality, kids

February 16, 2012 |  5:30 pm

Ricky Martin smolders for Details magazineAfter shaking his his bon bon on "Glee," Ricky Martin is dancing around matters a touch more serious -- like his thoughts on gay marriage and whether he'll take that next step in his own relationship.

"It's about civil rights. I'm not telling you what to believe. I wish people understood that love manifests in different ways," Martin told Details about the equality question facing the country. 

"Allow me to have my life and I won't mess with yours," he added.

That life includes twin boys and a four-year relationship with boyfriend Carlos Gonzàlez Abella, and Martin is in no rush to tie the knot -- legal or not.

"Everybody is asking me when I'm going to get married. People that I don't know are pushing it. But it's not something that we're talking about," he said.

Forgive him if he's otherwise occupied. In addition to his kids he's bringing "Evita" back to Broadway. How does he maintain his stamina?

"I go to the gym. I do yoga. I'm a father to two toddlers, and lifting them is a workout — this is biceps, this is triceps. I also try to make love. That helps," said Martin.
