Since making music in 1995, Enrique Iglesias has gained millions of fans. The 47-year-old son of famous singer Julio Iglesias, born in Spain, has also become a big star worldwide.
But the “I Like It” singer has only been interested in one person for the past 20 years, and he now lives with Anna Kournikova, 40, who used to be a tennis star. Read on to learn more about how they met and fell in love.
Where is Anna From?
She was born in Moscow, Russia, on June 7, 1981. Her father was a famous wrestler before he went to Moscow to get his Ph.D. at the University of Physical Culture and Sport, and her mother ran track.
She Was a Teenage Tennis Phenom
At age 14, she won the European Championships and the Italian Open Junior. A year later, she played in her first Grand Slam. In 2000, Anna was ranked No. 8 in the world. Even though she never won a singles title.
She eventually teamed up with Martina Hingis, who won the 1999 and 2002 Grand Slam titles in Australia. Anna quit professional tennis in 2003 because of problems with her back.
On the Set of Enrique's Music Video, Anna and Enrique Met
Anna was a guest star in Enrique's music video “Escape,” which came out in 2001. In the video, the two of them played characters who make out. On MTV's Making the Video, Enrique said, “I've never met her, but I'm a big fan.”
“I'm sure lots of guys want to meet her. One of them is me. She's pretty, smart, and a great tennis player, so I'm sure she'll do well in the video.”
After the music video, the two beautiful stars started dating, and they have been together ever since, even though they have never been married. Anna told Women's Health in 2011 that she didn't need to get married because she was in a “happy relationship.”
She Avoids the Spotlight
After Anna and Enrique started dating, they worked hard to stay out of the spotlight. The two are rarely seen together, and even though they are famous worldwide, they can have a successful life away from Hollywood.
She once told The Sun about becoming famous, “It's extraordinary. It feels like it happened to me but didn't because it was so long ago.” “By the time I was 16, I had played on every continent.” It was interesting to grow up that way.
Enrique thinks it's best for the two of them to keep to themselves. In November 2011, he told Australia's Today Tonight, “It's not that hard to stay out of the spotlight. Most people had just graduated from college when I stopped; it was the only thing I knew.
“He added, “You have to be able to laugh at yourself. [There have been rumors] that I've been married about 28 times and have children in many different countries. I think I'm having twins in Perth, Australia. You laugh at it, don't you?”
Anna and Enrique Kept Their Pregnancies Secret.
The couple had twins, Nicholas and Lucy, in December 2017. Mary, the twins' little sister, came along two years after their birth. When it comes to keeping their private lives private, the couple brought all three of their children into the world without telling anyone.
