Single fatherhood simple, says Ricky Martin

Los Angeles: Singer Ricky Martin is a single father and he says it isn`t "difficult" to raise children all by himself.

The "Livin` La Vida Loca" hitmaker split from boyfriend Carlos González Abella earlier this year. He gives his five-year-old twin sons Matteo and Valentino "a lot of love" and enjoys their life together, reports

Asked if being a single parent is tough, he said: "I don`t know anything else, so this is the journey that I embarked myself into.

"I made the decision to bring my kids into this world and it hasn`t been difficult at all. My kids have a lot of love."

The 42-year-old has released his latest single "Vida". He says it took a while for his sons to approve the track.

"With my latest single `Vida`, when we started working on it they were just not listening.

"And then we did some fixes, rearranged it and then all of a sudden, they were like `Oh!` and now it`s all about, `Daddy, are you going to sing `Vida`?`" he said.
