Even though last year he introduced Anna Kournikova as his wife, Enrique Iglesias clears up those rumors in the upcoming issue of Parade magazine. So what is the deal? Is he married or not? And will he be getting hitched anytime soon?
Highlights from the interview below.
ON INTRODUCING ANNA KOURNIKOVA AS HIS WIFE AT A CONCERT IN RUSSIA LAST YEAR:
It was just meant to be sweet in the moment. I honestly didn’t mean to confuse people. I thought it’d be easier for the audience to understand than if I said “my girl.”
ON WHY HE WON’T BE MARRYING ANYTIME SOON:
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. And nowadays, it’s not taboo to have kids and not be married. What makes a difference is that you’re a good parent, period.
ON WHAT HE LEARNED ABOUT FAME FROM OBSERVING HIS FATHER JULIO’S CAREER:
I remember there were these two guys who worked with him who would never even watch his show, but afterward they were at his dressing room saying, “Man, that’s the best show I’ve ever seen you do.” In showbiz, it’s easy to be surrounded by people who tell you everything is great, and as a little kid, I developed a sixth sense about those people. It gave me a tremendous psychological advantage.
In other words ladies, there is still a chance. A very slim one. But there IS one!
