Anna Kournikova: Still Yet To Meet Enrique Iglesias’ Dad
Have you ever watched the music video to “Escape” by Enrique Iglesias and wondered if Anna Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias would be a fitting couple? If you have not heard, Anna and Enrique are a couple and have been together for twelve years. I am sure that after you have been with someone for quite a while, you would meet their parents after a few years? Not Anna and Enrique.
According to MSN.com’s Wonder Wall, 32-year-old Russian Tennis sensation Anna Kournikova has still yet to meet 38-year-old Latin pop singer Enrique Iglesias’ dad, well-known Latin singer Julio Iglesias. When Julio was asked about his son’s relationship with Anna, and why he has not met his son’s girlfriend of twelve years, Julio offered the following statement to The Mirror:
“You know I have to tell the truth, I have never met Anna. Yes, my wife, and my kids and his brothers have, but I have never met her, no, no, never. I don’t know how comes. My kids are very independent and it is difficult to see Enrique because he is all over the world. But Anna is very beautiful — they have good taste my kids.”
In a recent interview with CBS Sunday Morning, Enrique talks about his relationship with Anna and how they met on the set while filming the music video for “Escape.” Interviewer Rita Braver asked Enrique “You never set eyes on her the day before she showed up on the set?” Enrique’s response was “I knew who she was, because the producer I was working with was in love with her.” Enrique also added the fact that “Never in a million years did I think that I would be making a video with her and that we would start up a relationship.”
CBS’ Braver also asked Enrique about the future, inquiring “Do you hope to be a dad some day?” Enrique’s response was “I do hope to be a dad”; however, Enrique admits that he doesn’t know if he’ll ever be ready for that and stated “I want to make sure I’m here as much as possible, and that I don’t travel as much. I don’t want to go on tour, and six months later, not recognize my own children.”
