It’s strange but true. The blonde bombshell and tennis player, Anna Kournikova has not met boyfriend Enrique Iglesias’s father in a time span of 12 years. Julio Iglesias spoke of this anomaly in an interview.
He said that though it was hard to believe, he had not met Anna in the past decade or so since she had started a romantic relationship with his son. He said that there were no hard feelings between father and son however he had yet to meet the tennis player. Enrique’s mother and brothers had met her but not his dad.
“You know I have to tell the truth, I have never met Anna,” Julio Iglesias told Mirror. “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.”
This may have to do with the fact that Julio was known in his times as “The Latin Lover” and had reportedly had sex with more than 3000 women. Julio was a very famous singer and his son Enrique was known more for his handsome looks than his voice.
“I am very proud of Enrique – he is a super guy,” Julio said. “You know it’s not as easy to follow in the same steps as that of the father. Like if you play tennis normally the kid doesn’t play tennis like the father. But Enrique is in the same class of guys like Michael Douglas and Liza Minnelli. The music is very different to mine and he has gone his own way, I don’t like to interfere with that. I don’t have to say whether I like it or not. He is doing very well, he is a clever guy and he is very charming.”
Julio went on to approve of Enrique’s taste in women. He stated categorically that Anna was a beautiful person. Julio has reached the ripe age of 70 but he is still young at heart. It is a miracle of sorts that son Enrique has kept his blonde girlfriend away from the clutches of his Casanova dad for so long.
Each time the family is to get together for Christmas or Thanksgiving, a conflict of schedules occurs and so Anna doesn’t get to come face to face with Julio. Julio mentioned this much that his son was too busy touring the world. Maybe that is one reason papa doesn’t see much of his son or his drop dead gorgeous gal pal.
Julio has a reputation for being a Don Juan of sorts. He is reported to have said that he feels he is an artist and that the only place he wants to go is the moon since he has not been there. The places he has been to are anyone’s lucky guess!
