“It’s probably more sex now than ever,” Iglesias, 43, told U.K. paper The Sun in an interview published on Tuesday, October 9. “The sex has not diminished.”
The Spanish singer also opened up about other aspects of his more than 16-year relationship with the former tennis pro. “Like any couple, you still go through your ups and downs and it’s not always perfect,” he revealed. “But it is perfect in a way.”
Iglesias noted that parenting comes naturally to 37-year-old Kournikova. “It’s incredible to watch her be such a great mother,” he gushed. “It’s incredible to watch a mom do what she does, when a mother’s instinct kicks in.”
The chart-topping artist feels fulfilled by fatherhood, so much so that he would consider giving up his music career. “There are days when I’d be lying if I said that stoping didn’t cross my mind,” he admitted. “That probably could become a reality in the near future.”
He continued: “Maybe I don’t see myself anything anything other than a few albums and that’s it. Then, never doing anything again other than being a dad.”
Iglesias and the Russia native met in 2001 when she appeared in a the video for his hit song “Escape.” While Kournikova sports a yellow diamond on her ring finger and the pop star referred to her as his “wife” during a 2017 performance, he has insisted they are not married.
The pair surprised fans in January by announcing the arrival of their babies. The pregnancy had been kept completely under wraps.
