Enrique Iglesias secretly married Russian tennis player Anna Kournikova, whom he had been dating for over 20 years
The world-famous Spanish singer Enrique Iglesias and former Russian tennis player Anna Kournikova have secretly married. The couple dated for over 20 years, and during this time they had three children together.
However, the celebrities previously claimed that, despite their status as parents with many children, they had no plans to legalise their relationship. Now, apparently, everything has changed. The fact that Iglesias is officially no longer a bachelor was accidentally revealed by his older brother, singer Julio Iglesias Jr, Marca reports.
Thus, Julio appeared on the Sonsoles Oneg TV show, where he talked about the wedding of his half-sister Tamara Falco. While discussing this topic, the singer accidentally let slip that his brother is now an officially married man.
Julio did not go into details, and the news of Enrique's marriage took everyone by surprise, including the show's host. The singer and tennis player themselves did not comment on the news. However, this is not surprising. The couple prefer to keep their personal life away from prying eyes and ears.
It is known that Iglesias and Kournikova met back in 2001 during the filming of the video for the track Escape. According to some insiders, romantic feelings had already begun to develop between the co-stars. Rumours intensified in 2002, when the couple attended the MTV Video Music Awards for the first time together.
The stars continued to hide their relationship, but in 2004, the first rumours of their possible engagement appeared. At the time, they were not confirmed, and years later Kournikova assured us that she had no plans to get married, as she did not see any point in it. However, she stressed that she would like to have children.
And so it happened. In 2017, the couple gave birth to twins Nicholas and Lucy. And two years later, another addition to their family took place - Kurnikova gave birth to a daughter, Mary.
Celebrities occasionally show off pictures of their children, but continue to keep their private lives behind seven locks.
As OBOZREVATEL previously wrote, the famous British musician, lead singer of the iconic rock band The Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, proposed to his chosen one, ballerina Melanie Hamrick, who is 44 years younger than him. The couple have been together since 2014, and in 2016, the woman gave birth to the rocker's eighth child.
