Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin told Latina magazine that he currently has no plans to marry despite rumors to the contrary, but that he would like to have a baby girl this year, according to an excerpt of the interview.

The “Livin’ La Vida Loca” singer denied that he was about to say “I do” to his companion, Carlos Gonzalez Abella, in a New York ceremony on Jan. 28, as his agent had already denied this week after news stories reported the artist’s engagement as a fact.

“We are not talking about it, we’re not thinking about it. But I’m so happy that in Europe we have the option. It’s amazing to think that we can say, ‘I feel like it. I’m ready. Let’s go,’ ” Martin said, who last November obtained Spanish nationality.

The singer at age 40 is the father of 3-year-old twin boys, Matteo and Valentino, and said he wants to have more kids soon.

“I think that I’ll do it later on this year, so that (the kids) are not too far apart in ages. A little girl! Dios mío, me muero… But we’re going to talk about that later on. It would be irresponsible to do it now,” said Martin, who in March premieres the musical “Evita” on Broadway playing the part of “Che” Guevara.

“The people, the critics, are going to be expecting a lot. It has to be the best. You have to have the attitude that, ‘You know what? No one will stop me.’ It’s going to be a magical year,” he said.

Ricky Martin is the cover model of the February edition of Latina magazine that will hit the newsstands on Jan. 10.
