In 2014 Enrique Iglesias’ father, Julio Iglesias, admitted to hardly ever seeing his in-demand son. On top of that, he hadn’t even met his son’s long-time girlfriend, tennis star Anna Kournikova. Are you guys smelling what we’re smelling? A family feud?
Julio said he respects that his son is a private person but he also said that he follows his son’s career closely and hopes that someday they’ll spend more time together when the two aren’t so busy.
Life flashed before the eyes of the Spanish stud while in Egypt in 2015. After playing a show in Alexandria, Iglesias and his tour manager were being driven to the airport when a reckless juggernaut driver cut them off. Thanks to the catlike reflexes of their driver, the star and his manager escaped unscathed.
A shaken but not stirred Iglesias posted a video showing his appreciation of the driver who managed to swerve out of harm's way.
The bilingual balladeer was delighted to release his album "Sex and Love" as it is only his second album that features both Spanish and English lyrics. The star of many accolades said that singing in both languages keeps him on his toes.
His eclectic stage shows are known to shift gears rapidly, from Spanish ballads to his well-loved English hits. We’re glad to see that the Spanish pop star is still well in touch with his roots!
Kylie and Enrique
Australian princess of pop, Kylie Minogue joined Enrique Iglesias to record the ballad Beautiful. Minogue was quoted saying that it was an honor to work with him and that she was moved to tears the first time she heard the song.
The songstress admits to always loving Iglesias’ voice and that when they recorded the ultra-romantic tear-jerker together it happened organically. We’re left wondering what Kournikova thinks about all that chemistry!
He's a Leg Man
While the star is now a committed family man, when asked what he looks for in a woman back in 2014 he said that a good set of legs is paramount.
He also said that he likes a woman with a sense of humor who will laugh at the stupid things he says. Legs and laughs, everyone. That’s all it takes to win the affections of this hunk. Too bad he's already taken, cause we feel like we have just what he needs!
