Yet again, former professional tennis player Anna Kournikova and her long time partner singer Enrique Iglesias added to their family without letting the public know they were expecting at all.
After welcoming a set a twins, Lucy and Nicholas without any advanced notice to the masses back in January 2018, the young couple said hello to their brand new baby daughter on January 30, 2020.
Iglesias took to Twitter to announce the news. “My Sunshine 01.30.2020” he captioned the photo of himself in a surgical mask, scrubs and protective hair covering, signaling the newborn arrived via C-Section.
She took to Instagram to share a photo of herself right after the delivery, with the same simple caption as dad. The super private couple are among a long list of celebs who have kept their entire or most of their respective pregnancies or birth out of the public eye such as Kylie Jenner, Eva Mendes, Blake Lively, Jennifer Hudson, Helen Laschichan, and others.
Congrats to the couple that have been a pair since 2001!
Real Housewives of Atlanta alum, Kenya Moore Daly continues to be dogged with and by rumors that she is faking her pregnancy and it seems no matter how many bare bump photos or pics of her cast mates cradling her belly she posts, there are always people in her comments expressing disbelief that the 47-year old former Miss USA is really expecting her first child.
Even recently, when she posted a cute Instagram photo of her hubby restauranteur Marc Daly feeling her baby kicks, she still had haters decrying the authenticity of the moment. Ugh!
She was all smiles in the photo captioned, “#marcdaly wasn’t ready for #babydaly’s kicks today ?❤️#babybump#babykicks #ThatsMrsDalyToYou.”
It is amazing to me. She is not the only one. Beyonce and Danielle Jonas both were trolled all Pregnancy and beyond when they each had their first kid.
Kim Kardashian was too and was BravoTV‘s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills former cast member Adrienne Maloof but way after the fact.
One season of the hit series focused on a rumor that Maloof had used a surrogate to birth her children so as not to “ruin” her body, but lied about actually being pregnant and going through labor and delivery to save face and not come off as being a superficial and vain person.
Meanwhile, who aren’t accused of faking their pregnancy?
Celeb women who barely look pregnant even at 5-months along like Remy Ma or who undergo an entire 40 weeks pregnant undetected and just crop up with a set of twins like Anna Kournikiva did!
It is quite interesting to me who gets the suspect treatment and who escapes it.
It’s Father’s Day weekend and a few celebrity dads who became fathers for the first time will be enjoying their first celebratory holiday Morrow. This list includes:
John Stamos waited until his 50s to become a dad. The Full House star and wife Caitlin McHugh welcomed son Billy in April
Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian welcomed daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. with his wife Serena Williams this year.
Also, rock star Enrique Iglesias and his wife Anna Kournikova quietly welcomed twins, his first children, after keeping the entire pregnancy secret.
Rapper Travis Scott and his girlfriend also kept their pregnancy under wraps until the end when he and Kylie Jenner become parents to daughter Stormi this February.
Reality TV star, game show host and recording artist Ray J and his wife Princess Love welcomed their first child, daughter Melody Love, together.
TMZ reports that tennis star Anna Kournikova and her long time partner and possible spouse Enrique Iglesias welcomed a pair of boy-girl twins over the weekend.
The names of the new arrivals are Nicholas and Lucy. Congrats to the happy couple who have dated for over a decade and were reportedly engaged or married, though no one knew for sure. Um just like no one knew home girl was even pregnant.
As TMZ notes, the gorgeous blonde has been out of the public spotlight for a while and was last spotted on a boat in November 2016.
Shout out to her family and friends for not spilling the beans. They’re the real MVP!
Kournikova is not the first celebrity to escape public awareness of a pregnancy. Among others who kept it mum until giving birth are Laura Linney, Lost star Evangeline Lily who kept her pregnancy secret for close to nine months before paparazzi spotted her pregnant in Hawaii. Similarly, back in 2009, Jennifer Hudson managed to conceal her pregnancy until she was about 8 months along before a snoop with a camera spotted her with a massive pregnant. Adele, Jennifer Lopez and several others kept it quite for 5 months or more.
They also join our growing list of celebrities who have twins list!
