Anna Kournikova, 36, and Enrique Iglesias, 42, have always tried to keep their relationship and personal lives out of the spotlight. The happy couple who has been together for over 15 years now recently welcomed twins into the world in December, The babies are the first children for the couple.
The couple kept Anna’s pregnancy a secret throughout most of her pregnancy to maintain privacy and probably just to enjoy the whole incredible experience. Which is very uncommon since so many celebs pregnancies and babies are on full display, which there is nothing wrong with, just to each their own and this is commendable.
So to say that everyone was in shock when the announcement of the couple twins birth hit the headlines is an understatement! The only thing that was overshadowing the announcement of their birth was the fact that Anna’s pregnancy had been hidden for 9 months! The twins were born in December in Miami, Florida and since the birth of their twins, the couple has remained true to themselves and remained out of the public eye.
Enrique and Anna just shared their first pictures of their twins on social media and everyone’s going crazy over them!
According to People, Enrique Iglesias and longtime partner Anna Kournikova shared the first photos of their infant twins to Instagram on Tuesday, confirming the news that they are now parents.
The “El Baño” singer snuggled up to his baby — who was wearing a gray striped onesie and matching hat in the sweet photo — and wrote, “My Sunshine.”
In a separate post to her own social media account, Kournikova copied Iglesias’ caption as she smooched the cheek of the other baby, who was also wearing a gray onesie.
Iglesias, 42, and Kournikova, 36, reportedly welcomed the twins — a boy and a girl — in December, according to TMZ. The outlet said that the babies’ names are Nicholas and Lucy and that they were born in Miami.
A rep for the musician had no comment, while a rep for the athlete did not immediately return PEOPLE’s request for comment at the time. A source confirmed to PEOPLE that Kournikova was indeed pregnant.
The newborn babies are the first children for the couple, who have been together for over a decade and a half.
A source told PEOPLE late last year that they saw Kournikova’s “cute belly,” adding, “a friend told me like five months ago [that] they were pregnant, but keeping it very, very undercover.”
The insider continued, saying the couple was “very private but very generous with local charities.”
Iglesias has long thought Kournikova would be the “ideal mother,” telling PEOPLE en Español in 2007, “I think she’d be the perfect mother, and I say it regardless of whether I’d be with her or not.”
Congratulations are in order for the happy couple on the birth their beautiful children! And best of luck with their new adventure!
