Ricky Martin will be spending Christmas (12) in a luxurious new home after purchasing a $6 million (£3.8 million) apartment in New York City.

The Livin' la Vida Loca star is based in the Big Apple while he stars in a Broadway revival of hit musical Evita and he now has a fancy four-bedroom condo on Manhattan's Upper East Side to call home.

Martin, who lives with his two young sons, reportedly paid just under $6 million (£3.8 million) for the posh pad, which features four en-suite bathrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows and views of Central Park, according to the New York Post.
