Singer Ricky Martin wants to marry his boyfriend Carlos Gonzalez and the couple is considering marrying in Spain.

During an appearance Monday on Spain's El Progama de Ana Rosa, journalist Miguel Angel Nicolas said the couple was considering marrying in Spain. He added that the Spanish model Esther Canadas, a friend of the Living' la Vida Loca singer, has offered to help Martin become a Spanish citizen. Spain legalized gay marriage in 2005.

Martin cannot marry in Puerto Rico, a territory of the United States, because it is not legal. While five states and the District of Columbia have legalized gay marriage, federal law does not recognize such unions.

In accepting an award from the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), Martin thanked his family and Gonzalez, who was seated in the audience, for their support. Gonzalez also attended Martin's inaugural concert in Puerto Rico for his Musica+Alma+Sexo (Music+Soul+Sex) world tour. Pastor Wanda Rolon, an influential social conservative in Puerto Rico, blasted Martin's sexuality on the eve of the concert.

The former Menudo star and father of two announced he's gay a year ago on Tuesday.
