Ricky Martin has shared he hopes to add to his growing brood.

The 48-year-old singer spoke with ET revealing that he and husband Jwan Yosef had a few remaining embroys they could use.

"Some people think I'm crazy but I love a big family and I have a couple of embryos waiting for me," Martin told ET, "I don't know. That's all I got to say."

"Jwan is going crazy at the moment, but it's OK don't tell him," he joked. 

The couple are already parents to 12-year-old twin boys Valentino and Matteo who Martin had via a surrogate as a single dad prior to meeting Yosef, as well as two-year-old daughter Lucia and one-year-old son Renn.

Martin has also previously spoken out about how the couple were open to adoption to expand their family.

The performer also opened up about how his sons were on the cusp on becoming teenagers, joking 'pre-adolescence is here and it's getting funky'.

"And on top of that, we're dealing with a lockdown and it's, 'Grrr…get out of the way! This is my room, not yours, blah blah.' You know, it's all part of it," he said.

"But these two are really cool kids. They're doing really good in school considering what we're dealing with and they have a beautiful little sister and a little brother and they own that role of the protective older brothers."

"So, it's very beautiful," he added. "I'm very, very proud of them and I'm very lucky to have the family that I have."

The singer was speaking ahead of the Latin Grammy Awards, where his latest album Pausa received four nominations, including Album of the Year.

Martin also spoke with British Vogue earlier this year about how the family had coped during lockdowns. 

"I'm at home with my husband Jwan Yosef, my mother Nereida, and my four children, Matteo, Valentino, Lucia and Renn," he told the publication.

"Keeping busy is not a problem, I have my hands full with two babies and pre-teen twin boys."

"What sums up lockdown? Diapers, music and me personally disinfecting all the deliveries," he added. "I also learnt to clean windows and iron sleeves like nobody's business!"
