Sushmita Sen

She was an 18-year-old beauty queen and he, a 22-year-old singing icon. But when Miss Universe Sushmita Sen and pop artiste Ricky Martin met in 1994, sparks flew. Today, 22 years later, Sen has shared a photograph of herself with Martin, which was taken when they first met.

Thanking the fan account that originally posted the picture on Instagram, Sen wrote: “Our 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. (sic)”

The two were also rumoured to be dating post the meeting and Martin’s popular track Maria, which was released in 1995, is believed to have been inspired by the singer’s acquaintance with Sen.
