Enrique Iglesias Biography: Enrique Iglesias was born in Madrid, Spain, on May 8, 1975. His parents, superstar singer Julio Iglesias and model Isabel Preysler, separated when Enrique was three. Five years later young Enrique moved to Miami to be with father Julio. While his childhood was blessed to the extent that his parents were successful, Enrique was not spoiled or fazed by his privileged position. He grew up as a normal, well-adjusted teen with common growing pains.

Singer ENRIQUE IGLESIAS has been kicked out of his Florida home by girlfriend ANNA KOURNIKOVA - after a row over his pet dogs.
The Hero hitmaker, who has been dating the former tennis star for six years, moved out of the house they share in Miami after a heated argument over the pooches.
But the Spanish hunk insists the pair is still together - and says he will move back in as soon as Russian Kournikova agrees.
He tells Britain's Hello magazine, "We were living together for six months, but she kicked me out. We had a fight. We did make up, but she didn't let me move back in.
"It was a stupid fight - something about my dogs. I'll move back in when she lets me."
ENRIQUE IGLESIAS' anxiety forces him to take sleeping tablets at night - admitting he swallows pill after pill in a bid to beat his insomnia.
The singer struggles to doze off due to his hectic touring schedule, and is worried about the amount of sedatives he consumes.
But he is forced to take more and more drugs to nod off, leaving him feeling the side-effects the following morning.
He tells Britain's Daily Mail, "I know about addictions because I have to take sleeping pills and often I don't sleep after taking them. So I take more and more and I lie awake and then I have to get up with a horrible sleeping pill hangover."
However, the star insists he would never turn to illegal drugs to help him slumber - because smoking marijuana just increases his anxiety.
He adds, "I'm quite grounded. I've never taken hard drugs because I am scared of getting hooked on things.
"I have taken grass, hoping I would write better music, but it made my writing worse and I felt terrible and paranoid.08/05/2009 12:20

"Girls look at him. Guys look at me. It goes with the job, but it gets annoying when you feel....
Singer ENRIQUE IGLESIAS was destined to become a heart-throb - his lothario dad JULIO taught him how to charm fans.
The Hero hitmaker is always happy to chat and pose for pictures with his female admirers.
And he had the perfect coaching in making girls swoon - he studied his father's suave moves while he was a schoolboy.
Iglesias tells Britain's Hello! magazine, "I consider myself a very affectionate person. I personally would never stand around for seven hours waiting for my pop idol to turn up. But that's why, when fans do just that, the least I can do is reward them. I learned this from my father, who has always treated his fans with the greatest respect and as equals. There are no two ways about it: You have to spoil your fans because without them, you're nothing.
"By the time I left home at the age of 18 there was nothing I needed to ask (my father). I'd learned it all growing up as a child by his side."
British pop star ALESHA DIXON was left seething after her tourmate ENRIQUE IGLESIAS' minders accused her of emptying a portable toilet at a concert venue.
Dixon, currently supporting Iglesias on his U.K. tour dates, first ran into trouble with the Spanish singer after his managers banned her from using his on-stage catwalk during her performance.
And she later fell foul of the star's security team - after they blamed her for making a mess by emptying the waste tank of a toilet.
She explains, "They summoned my manager down and said, 'Have you just emptied the chemical toilet outside the production centre?'
"(But) it was soapy water. We're not hillbillies."
IGLESIAS' BOY-ON-BOY SMOOCHENRIQUE IGLESIAS once thrilled a male fan by pulling him onstage and kissing him in the middle of a concert.
The sexy Spanish singer regularly invites female admirers from his concert audiences to share a kiss onstage during his hit Hero - but Iglesias insists he has no problem sharing the steamy moment with male fans.
He says, "I brought up a guy once. It was a bet - my manager said I didn't have the guts to do it. I'm not homophobic at all. The kiss was good, but there were no tongues."
The pop star admits he has been trying to cut out the act - but he continues to find himself drawn to certain fans in the crowd.
"I know it's a bit cheesy. I try not to do it and then I see someone in the crowd that wants to come up so desperately."

ANNA KOURNIKOVA ENGAGED?Anna Kournikova has sparked rumours she has got engaged to singer Enrique Iglesias after she was spotted wearing a diamond band on her ring finger.
Anna Kournikova has reportedly got engaged.
The tennis player - who has been dating Enrique Iglesias on and off for eight years - has been wearing a large diamond ring on her wedding finger, sparking rumours the couple are set to wed.
When asked about the ring's significance by one reporter, she snapped: "I thought you were the good press."
She then quickly put her hand behind her back.
Last year, Enrique - who began dating the blonde beauty after she appeared in his music video for 'Escape' in 2001 - gushed that Anna is the love of his life but claimed he had no plans to marry her in the immediate future.
He said: "Anna is amazing, she's the ideal woman. She's the woman of my life now and, though I don't really believe in eternal love, it sometimes does happen.
"I believe in marriage but I don't think you need to be married to be happy. I've seen blissfully happy couples who aren't married and I've seen married couples who are miserable.
"It's hard to keep a relationship healthy and stable - you only have to look at divorce figures."
The couple are often the subject of engagement rumours and Enrique once joked they had got married and split up.

KOURNIKOVA COY ABOUT ENGAGEMENT RUMOURSANNA KOURNIKOVA is playing coy about her rumoured engagement to singer ENRIQUE IGLESIAS - after the tennis star was photographed wearing a diamond ring on her wedding finger at a recent match.
Rumours the couple is planning to exchange vows have swelled since the 28-year-old blonde beauty was snapped wearing a sparkler on her left hand while boating with her beau along the coast of Miami, Florida earlier this year (Jan09).
But Kournikova refused to confirm or deny whether Iglesias had asked her to be his wife after she was again spotted with the ring at Monday night's (06Jul09) World Team Tennis match in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.
Remaining coy with reporters, she said: "I thought you were the good press."
The couple, together for seven years, has shared a home in Miami for the last 14 months.

COHEN HIRES IGLESIAS MINDER FOR TERRORIST TRIPFunnyman SACHA BARON COHEN had to hire ENRIQUE IGLESIAS' British minder for a comedic interview with a real-life terrorist - because no one else would take on the potentially life-threatening job.
The star thought it would be hilarious if his outrageous Austrian fashionista, Bruno, filmed a chat with a wanted Middle Eastern killer for his new movie - but he realised the stunt wouldn't be all funny when security agencies refused to work with him.
Cohen says, "We called around some security firms and everybody said no way and eventually I found one guy... who had done the Enrique Iglesias Hero tour.
"His main job had been protecting Enrique from flying underwear. I knew, if it came to it, this guy would take a bra for me."
To make sure he was safe at all times, Cohen and his security guard came up with a weather-related code, which would alert the star if weapons entered the location - but the minder forgot the code and the interview started with an awkward discussion about the weather.
Cohen might need the services of his forgetful minder again, however - if the unnamed terrorist ever sees new film Bruno.
He says, "I pray to God (they won't see the film)."

KOURNIKOVA & IGLESIAS PLAN FAMILYANNA KOURNIKOVA is planning to start a family with her boyfriend ENRIQUE IGLESIAS - once she has reached the pinnacle of her career.
The couple, dating since 2002, sparked rumours of a possible engagement earlier this year (09) when the tennis ace was snapped with a sparkler on her left hand.
Both stars played coy and refused to confirm the rumours - but the blonde beauty has revealed she'd love to settle down with her singer boyfriend and have kids.
She tells Britain's Glamour magazine, "We try to keep out relationship as private as possible. I don't read all that stuff about 'Anna's pregnant/married/broken up'.
"I would like to have kids, but years from now. I'm only 28 and there are still things I want to do first."
And Kournikova has revealed the secrets to the longevity of her relationship with the Hero hitmaker - laughter and respect.
She adds, "We have a mutual respect. We're both very independent but we try not to go too long without seeing each other. When he's away I miss his humour. He's a complete joker. He knows how to make fun of himself, which is very cool."
