Even though tennis great Anna Kournikova and artist Enrique Iglesias have been together for more than two decades, their relationship is very discreet, and nearly no one is aware of the existence of their children.
On May 8, 2022, in honor of Enrique Iglesias’s 47th birthday, Anna Kournikova posted a picture of their family on Instagram. It was a rare sighting of the whole Iglesias clan. Iglesias made his entrance as Kournikova and his son watched him from a distance. He was seen caressing one of his girls and holding the other one on his shoulders.
It is vital to note that Kournikova and Iglesias like to keep the intricacies of their relationship under wraps, so it is no surprise that their admirers were happy to see the family picture. Scroll down to see the photograph, and you’ll find all of the information you want for the private couple underneath it.

ANNA KOURNIKOVA’S STORY: FROM the Tennis Court to the Big Screen
Kournikova is a former tennis player who was born in Moscow, Russia, on June 7, 1981. She is known for her stunning good looks and exceptional tennis talents, which helped her get a lot of attention throughout her career.
She started playing tennis when she was five years old and immediately fell in love with the sport. Kournikova had already established herself as a good tennis potential by the time she was 10 years old, and as a result, she started training at Nick Bollettieri’s school in Florida.
Kournikova made her Grand Slam debut aged 15. Kournikova was able to compete in the fourth round of the US Open, but she was ultimately defeated by Steffi Graf, one of the most legendary tennis players of all time.
Kournikova’s finest singles run in a Grand Slam came in 1997 when she reached the quarterfinals of Wimbledon but was ultimately defeated by Martina Hingis. After playing singles together for two years, Hingis and Kournikova won the Australian Open in the doubles event in 2004. They finished the year ranked first in doubles competition.
Unfortunately, things became more difficult far too quickly. Kournikova had a stress fracture in her foot in 2001, for which she required surgery; the following year, she announced her retirement from professional tennis. Despite this, she continued to make money as a model.
A LOOK AT ANNA KOURNIKOVA AND ENRIQUE IGLESIAS’ PRIVATE RELATIONSHIP
Kournikova and her well-known boyfriend, Enrique Iglesias, first became acquainted in December 2001, when she appeared as his on-screen love interest in the music video for his song “Escape.” They became instant friends, but they kept their friendship a secret from everyone else.
Iglesias and Kournikova formally introduced themselves to the world for the first time as a couple when attending the MTV Video Music Awards red carpet ceremony in New York City in August of 2002.
When Iglesias revealed in May 2007 that he and Kournikova had been married in private and had subsequently divorced, the couple’s devoted followers feared the worst. The musician known for the song “Hero” said that he was single and didn’t mind being alone himself, but his representative subsequently clarified that it was all a prank on his part.
In November 2011, Kournikova remarked that marriage was not essential to her since she was in a good relationship even if she was not married to Iglesias. This statement caused another round of stories about the couple. It’s not like they weren’t interested in having children either.
WHO ARE ANNA KOURNIKOVA’S CHILDREN?
On December 16, 2017, the couple celebrated the birth of their first children, twins named Lucy and Nicholas Iglesias. It is safe to conclude that Lucy has inherited her dad’s enthusiasm for music, particularly since Iglesias shared a video of his daughter dancing to “The Wheels on the Bus” when she was only two years old. Lucy got this love for music from her father.
Nicholas looks much like his famous tennis player mother, but in addition to that, he has a natural talent for music. Iglesias published a video of his kid singing endearingly while riding on a boat when the child was just two years old.
Mary, who was born on January 30, 2020, is Iglesias and Kournikova’s newest and youngest child. The musician freely revealed that he was anxious about how the twins would feel about their younger sister, but both of them took an instant like to her.
Iglesias and Kournikova were said to be engaged once again after the birth of their daughter Mary. Anna Kournikova Iglesias is now her name on Instagram after she made the change. They have not, however, either verified nor refuted the reports. They have preserved such a beautiful family!
