It's been a busy day for celebrity coming outs—and we couldn't be happier about it! 

In an emotional video message posted to his Instagram account, Grammy-nominated, Spanish singer-songwriter Pablo Alborán publicly opens about his sexuality, and how he is coming out as a proud gay man. 

"We need to reconsider our lives, careers, what does and doesn’t make us happy," he says in the beginning of his Instagram video, reflecting on the solemn state of the world and current affairs. "I think that we often forget about the love that unites us and makes us stronger."

He continued: 

"Today, I want my voice to be louder and for it to have more value and weight. I’m here to tell you that I am homosexual and it’s okay. Life goes on, everything will remain the same, but I’m going to be a little happier than I already am."

Known mostly for his 2010 hit "Solamente Tú," Alborán has amassed a large, worldwide fanbase. At the time of reporting, the 31-year-old artist has nearly 4.5 million YouTube subscribers and 5.3 million Instagram followers and has also been nominated multiples times at both the Grammy and Latin Grammy awards. 

In his coming out, Alborán also talked about how he hopes being visible will help closeted queer people who don't come from accepting backgrounds in their own journey of self-discovery.

"There are so many people that did not have the same experience I did," he said. "That’s why today, without fear, I hope I can make somebody’s journey easier with this message. But above all, I do this for me."

Congrats, Pablo! Welcome to the family!
