The 41-year-old 'Livin' la Vida Loca' hitmaker, who has twin sons Matteo and Valentino, was anxious for the appropriate upbringing of his children, reported Contactmusic.
"I look back now and realise I would bully people who I knew were gay. I had internalised homophobia. To realise that was confronting to me.
I wanted to get away from that," Martin said. "I didn't want them (his twin sons) growing up in a house of lies or thinking that there was something wrong with being gay," he added. Martin came out with the news of his homosexuality in 2010.
