The two never enjoyed an open father and son relationship
This came as a huge surprise to the world that the famous singer Enrique Iglesias' also-famous father, Julio Iglesias, has never met his girlfriend Anna Kournikova even after 12 years of dating. This surprising admission was made by Enrique himself when he revealed this shocking bit to Billboard in its April 2014 issue.
The 38 year old celebrity said that the "The last 14 years, 15 years of my life have flown by. And that's the only way I can truly explain it. There's no reason why -- it's not his fault, and it's not my fault."
Iglesias' dad is surely the best sellign musician when it comes to Latin music and he is one of the best in the history of Latin music but unfortunately he hasnt had a very open relationship with his son and this explains why he hasnt ever officially met Anna Kournikova. Last year Julio Iglesias openly confessed that he has never really collaborated with his son but he only hinted towards the fact that he would one day spend time with his grandchildren.
"Singing with my son is something that would come off as very commercial," Spanish-born Julio told El Universal at the time. "I think that he and I will never sing together. If we sing, it will be at a dinner, when he has kids and wants his kids to sing, just like my little ones do. I don't believe in a public commercial duet between my kids and me."
Enrique, the famous singer and Anna Kournikova, who is a tennis pro, first met on the set of the singer's "Escape" music video in 2001 and they have been dating ever since. But even after seeing each other for such a long time, marriage seems to be the least of their concerns at the moment. And Enrique also stated that "I've never really thought marriage would make a difference. Maybe it's because I come from divorced parents, but I don't think you love someone more because of a piece of paper. Nowadays, it's not taboo to have kids and not be married."
