Pop star Ricky Martin is preparing to become a father again next year (15) with the addition of a little girl to his family.

The Livin' La Vida Loca hitmaker, father to six-year-old twin boys Matteo and Valentino, has been keen to add to his brood for some time, and now he's ready to move forward with his plans.

Martin says, "The little baby will come next year. When daddy's little girl arrives, I want to be there."

However, the singer reveals he's still on the hunt for the ideal surrogate, adding, "We have to make a couple of phone calls to look for the little girl."

Matteo and Valentino were also born via a surrogate mother in August, 2008.
