Ricky Martin wants kids — perhaps adopting "one from each continent" if possible.
"It's something we want to begin to create this year, a family of many colors," the 35-year-old pop star told reporters Wednesday in Puerto Rico, where he is scheduled to perform this weekend.
Martin, who isn't married, said he doesn't expect special treatment in the adoption process.

"I want to do it right," he said. "I don't want any problems or misunderstandings. ... Some think as celebrities we can manipulate the system to have a quicker adoption."
Martin, whose hits include "She Bangs," "Shake Your Bon-Bon" and "Livin' La Vida Loca," started the Ricky Martin Foundation to help children in need.
