Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova became first-time parents this past weekend, according to reports.
Sources in Miami told TMZ that Anna gave birth to twins (a boy named Nicholas and a girl named Lucy) on December 16, 2017. The notoriously private couple have largely kept out of the spotlight in recent years, and TMZ pointed out that one of the last shots of the 36-year-old former tennis pro in public is dated from over a year ago.
Amazingly, Anna and Enrique managed to keep the entire pregnancy a secret until the birth.
The couple has been dating on and off since 2001, keeping it extremely under the radar for the majority of those 16 years — which is basically an eternity in Hollywood.
According to E! Online, the two met on the set of the 42-year-old singer’s “Escape” music video, in which Anna starred. At the time, Anna was only 20 years old and Enrique was 26. Nowadays, the two live a very quiet life on a private island in Miami Beach.
The two have previously refused to confirm or deny rumors that they secretly married, though Anna has been seen wearing what appears to be an engagement ring. In 2014, Enrique told Access Hollywood that he did want kids one day:
“I’ve said in many of my interviews that I don’t think [marriage] will make me any happier, and I’m not against it by any means. […] And kids, yeah, at some point I would. Hopefully, the day I have kids, I’ll just lay back a bit and not travel as much and be touring constantly. I don’t want to be on the road for six months, eight months, come back, and not recognize my own child.”
Sounds like that day has arrived — congrats to the happy couple!
