Bollywood actress and former Miss Universe Sushmita Sen just went on a nostalgic trip as she posted an old picture on Instagram in which she is seen with rumored ex-boyfriend Ricky Martin, who is a popular international singer. Sushmita shared the picture which was uploaded by a Ricky Martin fan account. She was just 18 and Ricky was 22 at that time. The picture was taken 22 years back when Sushmita had just won the pageant and was touring the world. Martin was also touring at that time.

She has written a heartfelt note. She captioned, “ur first meeting in Mexico, Las Brisas, Acapulco. I was 18 years old and Ricky Martin was 22 then! Now, I have two daughters and he has two sons born from the heart. Our journeys have truly embodied “Livin La Vida Loca”, literally meaning ‘the crazy life’. Sharing memories smiles of a truly wonderful soul! To your happiness, Ricky.”

Take a look at the post:


The actress won the Miss Universe title in 1994 and it seems the picture is clicked after she won the beauty pageant. After winning the title, she had a brief affair with Ricky. The rumors said it all that Ricky’s 1995 popular track Maria was inspired by the couple’s affair.

Sushmita Sen is a single parent of two daughters – Alisah, 8, and Renee, 18. She adopted Renee in 2000 and Alisah in 2010. Ricky Martin became a parent to twin boys Matteo and Valentino in August 2008 through surrogacy. Two years later, he came out as gay and earlier this year announced he’s married to Jwan Yosef, his partner of two years.
