A lot of celebrities love being the center of attention and having paparazzi follow them everywhere. But, when it comes to Anna Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias who have been together since they met on Iglesias’ steamy music video for Escape, there hasn’t been much media coverage.
Reportedly, the couple who have been together for over 15 years, have welcomed twins -a boy and girl – named Nicholas and Lucy, according to VT.
The former professional tennis player and the King of Latin Pop are a notoriously private couple. So naturally, they kept the pregnancy secret.
The new parents have been dating since 2001 and Enrique has said numerous times that he thinks that the tennis player is beautiful and talented.
“I’ve never met Anna before, but I’m a big fan,” said Enrique, in the video. “She’s beautiful, talented, a great tennis player…You know, it doesn’t take a good actor to kiss Anna and try to make it believable.”
In late 2013, reports surfaced that the longtime couple had separated. However, the tennis player from Russia was seen wearing a large pink diamond ring on her ring finger when she was playing at the World Team Tennis match. Of course, this made people wonder if they got married secretly.
But, in an interview last summer, Enrique disclosed they “had no immediate plans to get married.” “I’ve never really thought marriage would make a difference. Maybe it’s because I come from divorced parents, but I don’t think you love someone more because of a piece of paper? Nowadays it’s not taboo to have kids and not be married. What makes a difference is that you’re a good parent.”
A source from Miami told TMZ that the tennis player gave birth on Saturday in Miami. It’s amazing how they kept this whole thing a secret for 9 months.
Anyway, congratulations to the happy couple are in order.
