New single "Finally Found You" available on iTunes.
Now i must explain first when i went to this concert i wasn’t a huge fan my friend Sophie asked if i would go and i said yes i`ll go, never seen him live i wasn’t that bothered who he was, i just love live music. We did make sure that Enrique`s greatest hits cd was playing all the way to Cardiff just so i didn’t look stupid ,but i knew all his songs anyway ,just never brought any of his albums. The only song i hadn’t listened to in a long time was “ hero “ and that song reminded me of my ex and every time it was played i use to turn the radio off! Too many memories , too hurtful to listen too.
So, we drive to Cardiff to watch Enrique in concert, it took us about 2 hours to get there traffic was good on this particular day thank god, when we arrived around 4pm it was a lovely sunny day.
We found somewhere to park quite easy right next to the Cardiff arena. We sat in the car wondering
what to do as we were so early, i said “well , we could walk into town go get something to eat, go shopping just to kill sometime then come back a little later on”.
We got out the car, we decided to check which way we had to go in to the arena we looked up & noticed a huge crowd had developed at the back of the arena, so went to see what all the fuss was about.Enrique had just arrived and he was running late as usual and i just saw the top of his hat, all these girls were screaming out his name to which i just laughed and shook my head, all of a sudden i heard some one call my name “June, June “over here i looked over by the barrier & noticed a guy waving at me, it was one of the Roadie`s that i knew called Jamie i knew Jamie from another gig he was doing ages ago. Jamie was 6ft with short Blonde hair not bad looking if i were honest.
He called me over & asked how i was, said i was fine said hello to my friend Sophie, i said to” Jamie what brings you here” he replied “the company i work for are doing the Enrique tour”, “wow that`s good for ya” i replied. Jamie then said to me “Are you still a keen photographer”
“yes i am why?” Looking really puzzled.
“Well Enrique`s resident photographer has had to go back home to Miami due to ill health & the management & Enrique are losing their minds because they desperately need someone to take photos for tonight`s gig & the rest of his tour”. I smiled & said “what has that got to do with me” acting a bit dumb and smiling at Jamie “well ,was wondering if your up to doing it i would have to go and speak to his people first” i blushed and i said “yeah would love too, but it wont Happen Jamie they wouldn’t want someone like me ,miss ordinary doing that sort of thing, he said “lets try yeah?”
I gave him my number & he said he would ring & let me know either way.
We walked off and Sophie was dead excited i said “don’t get your hopes up it aint going to happen lets walk in to town to get something to eat” by this time i was starving it was like 4.30pm we hadn’t eaten since 9am & that was at breakfast!
we got half way in to town when my phone rings its Jamie i gasp at Sophie, shaking i answered it & he said “where are you? Walking in to town why? “
“Well you better get your sorry little arse back here they want you to do some test shots of Enrique`s sound check & if your any good you`ve got the gig!!” I squealed with delight & went “nah Jamie your winding me up” he replied “i am not June, Enrique said he wanted to see what you were
made of! So, seriously get your arse back here now, but you have to be here
like now” he screamed. “Ok, ok” i said “we`re coming back right now but i warn you, you better not be winding me up Jamie! “I turned to Sophie & said “we`ve gotta go back they want me now!” smiling
really silly I said to Jamie “we`re be there in about 10 minutes”
I screamed, jumped up & down, said “we going to have to run back mate” she laughed & said “what in these heels” i said “yeah take them off “laughing.we ran as fast as we could back to the arena as it was getting late it was about 5.00pm and the doors were due to open at 6.30pm but Enrique hadn’t even done his sound check.
We got back to the arena and there was even more people waiting to see Enrique and as we were walking towards the barrier i heard some bloke say to these girls “oh they reckon they going to just walk up & go straight in” i smiled at the little cocky bloke as The security guy lifted the barrier up, i said “we`re here to see Jamie”, the guy look over at Jamie he gave The nod and the security guard let us through. The bloke blushed with embarrassment, i looked at him and laughed he put his head down because he knew how stupid he sounded, to be honest i don’t think he even knew we heard him say
what he did.
Jamie said “here your both going to need these access all areas passes” as we were walking into the venue, we put them over our heads so that the hung from out necks, so that they could be scanned each time we went anywhere.
“Sophie, your going to have to sit this one out i`m afraid your have to wait in the lounge room as Enrique doesn’t want anyone else in the arena apart from the Band, sound engineers & his management and of course June” Jamie smiled at this because he knew that this could be the best thing that has happened to me. It did make me blush that Enrique only wanted me in there with the others, and i thought, yeah right as if Enrique would even give me a second glance.
Jamie took me through and i remember thinking this is too good to be true someone pinch me please, my heart was beating so fast i was shaking, the palms of my hands were sweaty and my mouth was dry, Dave one of the sound guys introduced me to everyone he said “you can go anywhere you like,
where would you prefer to take your pix?” I said sheepishly ,”can i go on the cat walk?”
Dave replied “yes you can”, smiling at me there was some small steps leading to end of the catwalk & i decided i was going to sit crossed legged at the end to take some pix just take a few then go nearer once i plucked up the courage to do so...Id never seen Enrique in concert let alone met him & i never really been nervous when i have met famous people before,but this time “oh boy”
Enrique popped out from the side of the stage saw me sitting on the end of the catwalk & waved said
in to the microphone “Hey June, you ok?”
The house lights were up so he could see me clearly He looked so handsome and so tall id forgotten how tall he was. He was wearing his trade mark cap jeans, white hoodie with a scarf to keep his throat warm. I thought my heart was going to stop beating, I could feel it miss a beat when i saw him standing there smiling. I was looking up feeling myself blushing a lot i waved back & smiled thinking my god he looks even more handsome in the flesh.
The band starting playing ring my bells just as Enrique started walking towards me i was laughing to myself because i was so nervous, i could feel myself going red as he walked up to me smiling and singing “ring my bells” He stopped singing, the band continued to play.
He came right up to me sat down in front of me crossed his legs and our knees were touching each other, he said “you ok”? too which i replied “well err no, if i am honest i am shitting myself,” too which
he burst out laughing “hold your hands out “i put my camera down & i held my hands out he said “turn your hands, so your palms are facing the floor”, i looked at him he said “wow, you really are shitting yourself “ he said laughing at me “ your hands are shaking like mad, just like mine”
he started to laugh as he made his hands shake. I laugh at him thinking you silly sod but he put me at ease really quickly.
Enrique then said “bet your heart is beating real fast? “To that i answered “yes, it is “ took his right hand & placed it on my heart without even thinking where his hand was, he looked me right in the eye for a good few seconds smiled and then moved his hand away slowly, he was still smiling at this point. I thought how embarrassing was that, i mean, I don’t even know the guy really & go and do that to him, stupid, stupid i kept saying to myself.
I also remember thinking how beautiful his eyes were while he looking at me for that split moment,the skin on is hands was so soft. He then took hold of my camera & came right next me put his to head to my head & took a photo,” smile” he said as he was taking it.
He then got up ,extended his arms ,pulled me up said “bet your not nervous now are ya”
kissed me on both cheeks gave me hug and said “go for it June , take as many pix as you like, the more the better lets see how good u really are!! Put it this way if these photo`s don’t come out very good Jamie is going to be in big trouble” laughing.
I took about 50 photos of him doing the sound check he was running late as usual but he needed
to make sure everything was good to go for tonight`s gig, he finished & i said “Thanks Enrique” he said “No probs June i`ll take a look at them now if that`s ok? Yeah of course”, I took the memory card out the camera and gave it to him he said “do you mind waiting in the lounge room with the band? Just while i take a look at these with Fernando and we won`t keep you in suspense too long i promise you” he said smiling & he gave me a wink.
Went into the lounge room & my friend Sophie was talking
to Laura Jane they both asked how it went i said “ok i think, their looking at them now” i said nervously. Laura said “he will love them June trust me, Sophie has showed me some other photo`s that you have taken & you are really good June, Don`t put yourself down”, “cant help it “”i replied “just don’t think i am that good if i am totally honest with you” i snapped and i apologise for snapping but she understood how much this meant to me.
I smiled at her but i wasn’t convinced kept thinking he wasn’t going to like them & that they would be wasting their time testing me when they could have got a professional photographer in for one night.
About half an hour went past and i have to say it was the longest half hour of my life i was walking up & down the room thinking to myself he won`t like them, bet they turned out blurred. Everyone kept telling me sit down don’t worry, but i couldn’t i was worrying big time.
Then the door swings open i stop dead in my tracks, Fernando says “June, come with me”...Gulp i looked at everyone in the room they wished me luck. Enrique`s dressing room was at the end of the corridor my heart was beating so fast, i was so sure that Fernando could hear it going boom,
boom boom, Fernando knocked on Enrique`s door walked in & said to me “come in, sit down next to Enrique” i smiled and said “thanks” as i did Enrique kissed me again on the cheek & said “well
I was really blushing at this point my heart was pounding, my hands a little sweaty, my mouth was so dry & i honestly thought i was going to cry.........

A Fun But Silly Story Part 2
2 months later
We had no more dealings with Jane; she never called or wrote to us via email, which pleasantly surprised us both, Olivia had settled in really well, she was a helpful little girl. I still remember her first night with us she woke up crying in the early hours of the morning, Enrique got up to see to her, she said she had a bad dream & Enrique soothed her worries & she went back to sleep real quick.
It was Now April 3rd I was becoming increasingly uncomfortable, it was getting a lot warmer now, Enrique could now see I wanted these babies out of me as soon as possible, i was getting really grumpy I cried at everything, even him going away for one night to do a concert in Mexico, made me cry for an hour after he had gone. I never cried in front of Olivia i didn’t want to worry her, she was still settling down & I didn’t want to her to worry about me.
The morning of the 4th April I woke up early around 5am, I went to the bathroom, made plans to have a shower, as i was getting in the shower My waters broke! I shouted for Enrique twice & he came running “what`s wrong?” I stood there said “Its time to go Hun” he looked at me said “what are you on about?” I rubbed my belly & he then went in to panic mode he grabbed me made me sit on the bed sorted out some clothes for me to wear, dressed himself & then he sorted my bag out. Meanwhile I called May asked her if she could come in early and she said “I am on my way” she was ever so excited for us. May came through the door 10 minutes later I asked her if she could look after Olivia & Ella she said “No problems good luck” I smiled at her.
Enrique had taken both car seats to the car & I was carrying my bag “No, you can`t do that June” I laughed at him said “Yes, I can” he took it off me made sure i was comfortable in the car & we drove to the private hospital.
I telephoned Jacob he said “he would meet us there” we all arrived at the same time a nurse was waiting for me with a wheelchair to wheel me in to my room, I was asked to change in to a gown Enrique helped me do so, I was ready & the contractions were 10 minutes apart, it wasn`t long before these Two would be out of me!
Jacob came in said “I told you these would arrive early June, I said “are they going to be alright?” he smiled nodded “4 weeks is pretty good for Twins June a lot of the time they come a lot early than this”. Enrique sat down beside the bed holding my hand every time a contraction came along i would squeeze his hand so tight it would go White where no blood could circulate around it.
About 2 hours later the contractions were 5 minutes apart Jacob listened to their heartbeats, making sure they were not getting distressed, he said “I think your ready to push now June” & push i did with some screaming going on I blamed Enrique for every thing he was laughing at me, my nails dug in to his hand just to remind him how much bloody pain I was in!
At 8.02am Amber Isabel Rose Iglesias was born she weighed in at 5lb 70z she had gorgeous Black hair just like her father, then at 8.17am Cruz Miguel Enrique Iglesias was born he too had Jet Black hair they were crying as they were being cleaned up. Enrique kissed me hard on the lips said “well done baby, you have made me so proud” I had tears in my eyes, happy tears as i was smiling stupidly at him I said “No more babe, it would kill me to have any more” He laughed kissed me on the lips “If that`s what you want then we wont have any more June, I`ll stay away for a week or Two” laughing he kissed me once more on the lips.
They passed the babies to us both I held Amber & Enrique held Cruz, Fernando was outside they let him in after they cleaned me up; he took lots of photographs he had tears welling up in his eyes he was very proud too!
Jacob said to Enrique & Fernando “I think we should let June sleep for a bit after all these wont be able to leave the hospital until they have soiled their first nappy” They put both babies in the cribs, & Enrique & Fernando kissed me on the cheek & Enrique said “If you need any thing just shout i`ll be just outside” I smiled closed my eyes.
Fernando patted Enrique on the back said “well done kiddo those babies are beautiful” Enrique looks at him says “You know I didn’t think she would have these today, June has made me so very happy & the proudest person on this planet” Fernando smiles at him says “I`m guessing here that June doesn’t want anymore does she? Enrique shook his head “No I did say I would stay away from her for a week or Two” Fernando just laughed at him said “Yeah, ok”
Enrique said to Fernando “I am going to call June`s parents then I`ll ring my mum tell them all the good news” he walks out the door of the Hospital walks out in to the grounds to make the phone calls. About 25 minutes later he walks in to my room goes to look at both babies, walks round to my bed sits on the bed with me, he hugs me I wake up & we have a cuddle & kiss & he falls asleep with me.
An hour later the babies are awake & boy didn’t we know it, I laughed as Enrique was like “whoa this is too loud” The Nurse brought in Two Bottles Enrique gave me Cruz to feed & he had Amber they took their first bottle`s really well.
After their feed I started laughing because they needed their nappies changing Enrique said “Oh my god June is that smell what I think it is?” I roared with laughter “Yes babe, but your going to have to changed them as Jacob told me complete bed rest”, I called for the nurse I told her that Enrique would need a hand. He decided he was going to change Cruz deep inside i knew what was going to happen, he started changing him & all I heard was “OH MY GOD, oh yuck” I had the covers over me as i was laughing so much he turned round & his T-shirt was soaked Cruz had weed all over him. The nurse was in Hysterics she said “hang on a minute let me finish Amber`s nappy” which she did quite speedily she placed Amber in her cot walked out & came back with some scrubs for Enrique to put on.
The nurse walked away as she did i mouthed “Thank You” to her she smiled back at me, Enrique stripped off his T-shirt washed his chest & put the scrubs on, “You, You knew he was going to do that didn’t you?” he came over to me kiss me I said “Yeah, there is a knack in doing that Hun, when we get home I`ll show you” he rubbed his nose against mine said “I love you, you rotter but i certainly wouldn’t be without you June” I smiled kissed him on the mouth just as Jacob walked in. He smiled said “Well, their nappies are fine nothing to worry about although Enrique I hear you had a bit of a shock didn’t you?” He nodded his head Jacob said “well, June if you want you can go home, but I want you to stay in bed for the rest of today & see how you feel tomorrow”
We put Amber & Cruz in to their car seats & Enrique helped me get dressed, we gathered all our belongings up & the nurse wheeled me out Enrique had one baby, Fernando had the other, we settled them in to the car & Fernando followed us home.
We pull up and May & Olivia was there waiting to greet us all I got out the car Olivia runs over hugs me gently, as Enrique gets Amber out gives her to Fernando & May makes a fuss, I said to Olivia “go and have a look at Amber” May takes Olivia`s hand & they have a look at her then Cruz comes out & they have a good look at them both. Olivia smiles she says “Mummy, I love them both” I look at Enrique with tears welling up in my eyes & I smiled said to her “Do you that`s good because these are your brother & sister”
Enrique & Fernando took the babies inside as it was really warm in the afternoon sun Olivia held my hand I said to her “I have to go & lie down do you want to come with me?” she shook her head & said “Can I stay with daddy & the babies?” Enrique scoops her up & said “Of course you can, you can help daddy feed them when they wake up” I walked up to them both kissed Olivia she kissed me back, i stood on tip toe to kiss Enrique he kissed me full on the mouth as Olivia laughed.
