Celebrity Update: Gay Celebrities with Children

When Ricky Martin announced he was gay on his blog yesterday, I was clueless he had done so. Not until I settled in for the night and checked my blog stats and realized I had gotten hundreds of hits via Google images for people looking for photos of Ricky Martin's twin boys (which I had in a past post) did I realize something was up. As usual these days, my initial response, was "oh No, Did Ricky Martin die?" Then I went the only place on earth where you can get the most up-to-the-minute news: TWITTER!! Sure enough, Ricky Martin was one of the top 10 trending topics on Twitter! That is when I discovered the news! AAaaah! Well good for him for being true to himself and sharing tho I think most of us knew when he refused to confirm his sexuality to Barbara Walters back in 2000 that our chances of getting with him were over at that point! lol!

Well, I thought is was just only fitting then to have this week's edition of celebrity spotlight focus on other gay celebrities that have had children (either via surrogate, donor or adoption). Hey hey! I can be trendy too! Ha!

B.D. Wong

The kids are pictured from left: daughter Chelsea, born in 1997; son Parker, born in 1995; son Blake, born in 1999; and daughter Vivienne, a biological child born to Carpenter in 2002.

Cat Cora

Celebrity chef Cora and her partner, Jennifer Cora, were pregnant at the same time with their third and fourth children. The same sperm donor was used in all four pregnancies and each woman was implanted with the other’s fertilized egg.
And these are just the openly gay ones! I would imagine there are a lot of closeted celebs raising their blessings too. ha! I crack myself up!
