Former Voice Australia coach Ricky Martin and his husband Jwan Yosef have welcomed a new addition into their family.
The couple took to Instagram to announce the birth of their fourth child, a baby boy and revealed the bub's unique name.
Posting a photo of the couple holding the newborn wrapped in a blanket, Ricky, 47, wrote: "Nuestro hijo Renn Martin-Yosef ha nacido", which translates as "Our son Renn Martin-Yosef is born".
In September, the Livin' La Vida Loca hitmaker announced they were expecting during his acceptance speech at the 23rd annual Human Rights Campaign National Dinner in Washington D.C.
At the event, he was accepting the HRC National Visibility Award for his advocacy of LGBTQ rights and his philanthropy.

Ricky and Jwan already have three children together - 11-year-old twins Valentino and Matteo, who were born in 2008 via a surrogate, and eight-month-old daughter Lucia, who was born at the end of 2018.
"My family's here," Ricky said in his acceptance speech.
"Jwan, I don't see you; but my husband Jwan. I love you. My beautiful twins - Valentino and Matteo, they're also here, I love you with all my heart. You're my strength, you inspire me every day, you motivate me to keep doing what I'm doing and you guys are amazing kids. You guys are amazing. I love you. Lucia, my baby girl who is not here with us - she stayed at home with Grandma - but she's also the light of my life," he said.
"And by the way, I have to announce that we are pregnant," he revealed, as the audience cheered. "Alright! I love big families."

Ricky and Jwan first started dating in 2016 and after a whirlwind romance, were engaged in November 2016. Less than two years later, they were married in January 2018.
Jwan is a Syrian-Swedish painter who first connected with Ricky over art.
"I saw his art, and I went crazy because I really love what he does – really original. And I contacted him," Ricky revealed on The Ellen Degeneres Show.
"And then you collected him," Ellen joked in response.
