Anna Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias welcomed twins over the weekend – a boy and a girl.


The professional tennis player gave birth on Saturday in Miami, giving the first-time parents Lucy and Nicholas. The couple tends to stay very low-key with their private lives, and managed to keep Kournikova’s pregnancy under wraps for all nine months. She, 36, and Iglesias, 42, have been together for 16 years.

The couple met in 2001 when the tennis star appeared in the singer’s music video for “Escape.” “I’m sure a lot of guys want to meet her, you know. I’m one of them,” he said at the time. “She’s beautiful, talented, great tennis player. And I’m sure she’s going to be great in the video.”
