Coming out as a gay man was a very difficult thing for Ricky Martin to do. He appears on Oprah tomorrow to discuss the details of the day he wrote his infamous email that read: "I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man.

Here are some highlights of what to expect from the interview:

On how emotional it was for him: "When I realized, okay, I just pressed send, whoo … I was alone. I was in my studio alone for a minute. My assistant walked in and I just started crying like a little baby. I started crying."

On finally deciding to come out: "I couldn't take it anymore. It was too painful. But I guess the most important thing is my children ... When I was holding them in my arms I was like, 'What, am I gonna teach them how to lie?' Whoa, that is my blessing right there. Then, when I was holding my children I said, 'Okay, it's time to tell the world.' "

On parenting his twin boys Valentino and Mateo: "It's not easy. And apparently it gets harder."

Wow. Tune in tomorrow to see what will most definitely be a very powerful interview.
