Ricky’s children have spent the majority of their young lives on the road with the singer, as he travels across the world to perform. The 49-year-old shared that the kids first came along for the ride eight years ago, when the twins were four, and has been “amazing”.

“We were really in lockdown because my mom was with us. We were warm and cozy...sometimes there was anxiety, but we’re doing really well. Kids are amazing,” he added.
Ricky is set to tour with Spanish sensation, Enrique Iglesias, although he did not specify if the family will be joining him. The pop stars begin their tour at Las Vegas, Nevada in September 2021, with 26 dates across North America.
