Singer Ricky Martin has said that he would love to marry in Spain.

Two years ago, Martin secured citizenship in Spain, where gay marriage was legalized in 2005, fueling rumors that he was preparing to marry boyfriend Carlos Gonzalez in that country.

“If I were to get married, I would love to do it in Spain. There is spectacular scenery for a big wedding,” Martin told Spanish news agency EFE ahead of a return visit to Madrid.

Martin, who was born in Pueto Rico, added that his request to the Spanish government was “a question of identity.”

“I need to go back to give my children the answer to who we are and where we come from,” Martin said, a reference to his Spanish grandmother.

Martin, 41, announced he's gay in 2010. The former Menudo star and father of two is currently a judge/coach on Australia's singing contest The Voice.
