Enrique Iglesias has been dating Anna Kournikova for the past 12 years, but he's yet to introduce the retired tennis pro to his famous father, singer Julio Iglesias. What's keeping them apart? "My kids are very independent and it is difficult to see Enrique because he is all over the world," the 70-year-old living legend tells the U.K.'s The Mirror. "But Anna is very beautiful—they have good taste, my kids."
Julio, who vows to never retire from music, tells the newspaper, "I have to tell the truth—I have never met Anna. Yes, my wife, and my kids and his brothers have, but I have never met her, no, no, never."
He may not be privy to his son's love life, but Julio is "very proud" of Enrique's accomplishments. "He is a super guy," he raves. "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 [Kirk Douglas' son] Michael Douglas and [Judy Garland's daughter] Liza Minnelli."
