Anna Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias share adorable pictures of their six-month-old twins watching the World Cup
The couple have been together for around 17 years after they met on the set of Enrique's music video 'Escape' in late 2001
Anna Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias had privately welcomed twins back in the month of December but the pair decided to share adorable pictures of the six-month-old twins, Nicholas and Lucy, as they watched the 2018 World Cup.
The 43-year-old 'Hero' singer and the former tennis player each shared separate pictures of them holding one of the children. In Anna's photo, one of the twins was dressed in a blue t-shirt holding on to a stuffed 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia soccer ball while Anna herself was wearing a long sleeve pink shirt and had her hair tied up in a neat and simple ponytail. The Russia vs. Saudi Arabia could be seen playing in the background.
Enrique's photo, on the other hand, had one of the infants propped on his shoulders with his hands around his head as they shared a special father-son moment. Iglesias had an Espana blanket around his shoulders while Spain vs Portugal game was on in the background.
It seems like the household will be split in terms of who they are supporting for the World Cup as Iglesias is from Spain and Kournikova is from Russia. Both of the family's favorite teams have moved forward in the cup with Russia defeating Saudi Arabia 5-0 and Spain advancing after a 3-3 tie with Portugal.
Anna and Enrique welcomed their twins in December and the extremely private pair surprised their fans with the news after managing to keep their pregnancy a secret for a long period of time.
When the couple first shared pictures of their twins on social media, their fans and followers were absolutely delighted. In a photograph that Enrique uploaded, he was seen nuzzling the little baby and both the father and the child were dressed in a uniform grey outfit. In the picture that Anna uploaded, one of the babies was seen wide awake sitting in Anna's arms and was seen getting showered with love.
The now-retired athlete may have some great moves on the tennis court but she joked that her moves on the dance floor need some more practice. She recently shared a video to Instagram and showed off some of her moves as she held one of her baby twins in a baby carrier. The mother of two captioned the adorable footage and wrote, "Little one, please don’t inherit my dance moves." The mother and son were seen grooving to Enrique's song with Pitbull 'Move to Miami'.
Enrique is always on the move for his music and the Spanish pop star admitted that performing for his fans is the second best thing for him after being home. After Iglesias performed for a packed crowd in Tel Aviv, Israel, he shared that he is missing his girlfriend, Anna Kournikova and their baby twins, Nicholas and Lucy.
As reported by the DailyMail, "I miss my family like crazy. But I love doing what I do, which is being on stage and just being surrounded by my fans. Those are the two things I love most in my life."
Many artists have turned down performing in a tension-filled Israel but Enrique revealed that he had never had second thoughts about performing there. "I have sung in so many countries around the world during conflicts. my music is not about politics," he shared.
Before the couple had their twins, both revealed that they were very close to their dogs and Iglesias told the Guardian that he was the happiest when he was "at home with my dogs, or on the boat going waterskiing on a beautiful day in Miami. And having a hit song that connects with people." Both Anna and Enrique wished their canine Jack a happy birthday last October.
Anna was previously linked to Russian hockey players Pavel Bure and Sergei Federov since she was about 16. Federov claimed to The Hockey News in 2003 that they had been married, "Albeit briefly, and we are now divorced" (as well as no longer in touch). She was also rumored to have been engaged to Bure but both, she and Bure, denied being engaged.
"While I don't typically comment on my personal life, let me confirm once again that I am not married," Kournikova stated on her website.
The famous pop star and the athlete have been together for around 17 years after they met on the set of his music video 'Escape' in late 2001. It is not known whether they got married or not.
