By Laura Seaman

Ricky Martin wants to add to his family of three and get a little girl to join him and his twin boys Valentino and Matteo (5). Martin, now a single father after his breakup with Carlos Gonzalez Abella, tells People, “I want a daddy’s little girl.” So, not only is the Latino singer looking for love in a romantic way, but in a family dynamic as well. “[Being a parent] enhances everything,” he says. “I’m only starting… I want more kids!”

How do you decide whether to have more kids with your partner?

Cupid’s Advice:

You might have one kid or maybe two, but sometimes it’s just not enough. Deciding whether to have more children is a big decision to make, and you can’t make it alone. So, how do you bring up the idea of having another child with your partner? What should you expect out of this conversation? Cupid is here to help the talk go as smoothly as possible:

1. Make it an open conversation. Maybe your partner doesn’t want another kid, or maybe they haven’t even thought about it. This could be a total surprise to them, and you need to be open to what they have to say. Don’t just expect to get your way!

2. Give them time. This is a decision that will most likely take more than one conversation. Don’t hound your partner 24/7 or drop not-so-subtle hints all the time. They have to think about this, and it’ll only stress them out more if you’re always on their back.

3. Stay calm. There’s a chance your partner won’t agree with you, and that’s okay. Don’t yell or get aggressive just because you didn’t get your way. Try to understand their point of view and see if you can reach an agreement. This is a joint decision, and that means their opinion is just as important.
