.- In response to rumors in the media that he is the biological father of the twins adopted by Ricky Martin, Mexican actor and pro-life activist Eduardo Verastegui, emphatically denied the reports and called them “an absolute lie.”
 
Speaking in Colombia, where he was giving a series of talks on the defense of life and fundamental values, Verastegui said, “There will always be rumors, no matter what you do.  For eight years I have been promoting a message of chastity, purity, faith and hope around the world, and with rumors like this you realize that there are people who really don’t like this and are going to come up with every kind of gossip imaginable to try to discredit what we are doing.”
 
The situation, he said, “is laughable: on the one hand, to be telling young people sex is a gift from God that is sacred, and on the other hand, rumors come out that say the complete opposite.  It’s an absolute lie.”
 
Verastegui also said he respected the decision of those who decide live together, but that they should not speak of it as “marriage.” Instead, they should describe them as “civil unions,” because as a Catholic he defends the concept of true marriage between one man and one woman.
