Ricky Martin has revealed John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever made him realise he was gay.

The gay singer admitted the scenes of the star as Tony Manero in his underwear that awoke some feelings in teenage Ricky.


During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live, the Livin’ La Vida Loca singer was asked by a caller about his first guy crush.

‘Saturday Night [Fever] with John Travolta,’ Martin said.

‘And that underwear scene where he stands up, sits down and he … even puts it in order.’

He added: ‘I saw that movie back then like eight times and I didn’t know why.

When asked by Andy Cohen if he had ever told the Grease star, Ricky added: ‘I’m sure we’ve met, but no, I never told him, “You’re my first crush!”‘

Something tells us that John Travolta might appreciate that.

Ricky also revealed how he is planning to have more children with fiancé Jwan Yosef. They already have two 8-year-old twin boys.

‘Of course I want a big family. It’s funny because the way we do babies, I get to choose the sex. Definitely girls are coming,’ he said.

And when asked whether he had a type, Ricky proved how loved up he still was with his partner.

‘[Jwan] is my type.’

Ricky Martin will be performing in a Las Vegas residency beginning 5 April.
