Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova have been together for more than 20 years, keeping their love relationship away from media gossip and proving that it is possible to have a fairy tale story.

But how did it all start? Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova met in 2001, when the 41-year-old tennis player starred in the 47-year-old singer’s video ‘Escape’. At that time, the interpreter of ‘Religious Experience’ was 26 years old, while the athlete was 20.

The chemistry of the famous was notorious from the first moment and crossed the screen. Enrique Iglesias would have fallen in love with Anna Kournikova, but the singer did not have an easy road, since the athlete rejected her proposals several times. But Enrique was not willing to give up and Anna ended up giving in and decided to accept him on a date, thus marking the beginning of her love story.

The couple made their relationship public at the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards. Since then, the couple has become one of the favorites of the entertainment medium.

Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova have starred in one of the most beautiful stories in the entertainment industry, but they have not managed to escape all the rumors about everything that has to do with a possible wedding.

The rumors began in 2004 when Anna Kournikova surprised her fans by appearing on the courts with a large pink diamond, so rumors immediately emerged that the couple had become engaged.

Throughout their love story there were several rumors of breakup and wedding, but they were never confirmed. Even Enrique joked about these rumors as when he declared to the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet: “We are going to divorce. I am single and I feel good. It does not bother me to be alone.”

Shortly after, Anna declared that Enrique’s words were false and he was only joking. In addition, she confirmed that they were together and happy.

At that time they became one of the most popular couples, for which they were constantly sought after by the paparazzi. Anna Kournikova announced her retirement from tennis when she was 22 years old, just two years after meeting Enrique Iglesias.

Due to the fury that caused each time they went out together, the couple decided to keep their relationship away from the media. In 2008, the athlete ended the rumors of a wedding by pointing out that they were never going to get married. Days later, Enrique Iglesias confessed that he had tried to propose it to her, but she never paid attention to him: “I always try, but she doesn’t pay attention to me.”

In 2012, Enrique Iglesias changed his mind about getting married, saying, “I never really thought marriage would make a difference.” Over the decades, the couple has also faced rumors of separation, as in 2014, when the singer revealed that they had already divorced. No one knew they were already married!

At that time these were Enrique’s words: “We got divorced three days ago and I wanted to give them the exclusive. It’s serious. No, seriously, don’t laugh.” Once again, everything was ambiguous, because three years later, in 2017, Enrique and Anna became parents for the first time with the arrival of twins Nicholas and Lucy.

In 2020 the couple expanded their family with the birth of Mary. The former Russian tennis player was never publicly seen pregnant, so the news of her babies surprised all her followers. Through their social networks, Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova share few details of their life in Bay Point, one of the most luxurious and exclusive islands in Miami Bay.

The artists have shown that despite their fame, you can have a solid relationship without the media and their followers meddling in your romance. Could it be that they will surprise us again with some news? Only time will tell…
