In late June, Martin shared his excitement when Matteo joined him on the set of a new project.

Martin posted a rare shot on Instagram of his son giving him a thumbs-up from a director's chair on the set of his new music video.

"Look who decided to accompany me to the filming of my new video," Martin wrote in the sweet photo's caption, translated from Spanish to English.

Last year, Martin appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where the talk show host asked him about appearing on the cover of PEOPLE's 2021 Pride Issue.

"I'm very happy. People ask me, 'How do you feel [about being on the magazine cover?' Well, you know what," Martin began, "every time I have the opportunity to No. 1, talk about my family and let the world know that we're good people, and how we feel and love is really— I just wanna normalize families like mine."

"It's very interesting, but a lot of people tell me, 'Ricky, thank you so much just for posting that picture with you and your husband and your kids. That made me feel better about myself,' " added Martin.
