Ricky Martin: Welcome to the UES!

Ricky Martin and his boyfriend, the rarely photographed Carlos Gonzalez, have been apartment hunting on the Upper East Side. Two days ago, they looked at a four bedroom (the couple have two sons Matteo and Valentino, born in 2008 via Surrogate) at 151 east 80th Street. The rent is a cool $26,000 a month. But when you’ve lived La Vida Loca, is cash really a deal breaker when it comes to fancy digs for a famous family of four?

Martin will be in New York a lot. He is starring on Broadway as Che in Evita starting in March. And if you can’t wait that long, Martin is playing a sexy Spanish teacher on Glee this January. Caliente!

So next time you’re on the Upper East Side shopping or Starbucking, keep your eyes peeled for Ricky and family.
