Enrique is yet to introduce his father

Enrique Iglesias still hasn’t introduced Anna Kournikova to his father – even though they’ve been an item for 12 years.

But pretty tennis player Anna, 32, gets Julio Iglesias‘s approval.

You know I have to tell the truth, I have never met Anna,’ says Julio, 70.

Yes, my wife, and my kids and his brothers have, but I have never met her, no, no, never.

I don’t know how comes. My kids are very independent and it is difficult to see Enrique because he is all over the world.

But Anna is very beautiful – they have good taste, my kids.’

Spanish singer Julio might not get to see Enrique, 38, as often as he’d like but he fully supports his son.

I am very proud of Enrique – he is a super guy,’ Julio tells the Mirror.

You know it’s not as easy to follow in the same steps as that of the father. Like if you play tennis normally the kid doesn’t play tennis like the father.

But Enrique is in the same class of guys like Michael Douglas and Liza Minnelli.

The music is very different to mine and he has gone his own way. I don’t like to interfere with that.

I don’t have to say whether I like it or not. He is doing very well, he is a clever guy and he is very charming.’
