Latin pop sensation Enrique Iglesias and retired tennis star Anna Kournikova met on the set of his video “Escape” in 2001 and have been together ever since. Fast forward to December 2017, and reports surfaced that they had welcomed twins. The news was pretty surprising since no one knew that Kournikova was even pregnant. But in January 2018, the pair confirmed that they were in fact parents by sharing photos of their little ones on social media.
The super-private couple did manage to confuse their fans though and left us all with one big question after they introduced the twins to the world. Here’s more on that and what we know about the new additions to their family.
Baby news confirmed
Several news outlets reported the Kournikova gave birth to the twins on Dec. 16, 2017, in Miami. According to TMZ, the celebrity couple had a boy and a girl who they named Nicolas and Lucy.
However, there was no confirmation from either party or their reps about the births until they chose to share photos of the babies.

No paparazzi photos
Iglesisas and Kournikova are so private that they are rarely seen in public together, and they have already gone to great lengths to make sure their children have privacy as well. This included having a 16-foot wall built around their Florida property to ensure that the paparazzi can’t take and sell pictures of their twins.
Therefore, fans knew the only way they would get a glimpse of little ones is if the singer and athlete shared pics of the twins themselves. On Jan. 16, 2018, they did share precious photos on each of their Instagram accounts.

He captioned the post simply with the words, “My Sunshine.”

Kournikova shared photo of other baby
Not long after Iglesias’ post Kournikova shared a pic of the other baby. In that adorable photo the happy mother is holding up the other twin and giving the baby a kiss on the cheek. She used the same “My Sunshine” caption the “El Bano” artist used.
But after they shared the pics, fans were left with one big question.
Next: One big question
Which baby is which?
The new parents did not share who’s who. So, the one big question fans were left wondering was which baby Iglesias was lying with and which baby Kournikova was holding.
The infants were each dressed in gray outfits, no hints of pink or blue. Therefore, it’s a mystery as to who Nicolas was and who Lucy was.
Next: Another major question
Another question raised
One can only speculate about who was who, but not identifying either baby in the posts has led to some speculation about the sex of the babies. Since the couple never confirmed their children’s names, some are wondering if they did in fact have a boy and a girl instead of two boys or two girls.
There’s also the possibility that they were showing off the same baby just in a different onesie or perhaps they only had one child, not twins. This is all getting confusing, so we’ll just have to wait for confirmation directly from the couple.
