However, he has insisted once again that they have no plans to tie the knot. There comes a point when you've been with someone for a certain amount of time that I believe that you are like, married," he insisted."I guess the only difference is that we haven't walked down the aisle." Enrique is currently promoting the remix of his song Subeme La Radio, which features Sean Paul and Matt Terry, the winner of Britain's The X Factor in 2016, and he told Britain's Daily Star newspaper he had no problem working with a singer who found fame on a TV talent show.The 42-year-old has been dating Anna on and off since 2001, after they played lovers in the music video for single Escape.They have been dogged by marriage rumours, especially in 2011 when Enrique referred to Anna, 36, as his "wife" during a concert and again last year (16) when she was spotted wearing a gold band on her ring finger."It's tough to be an artist and get signed to a record company these days," he explained."To me, whether you get signed because you are on X Factor or because you walk into the Sony building, it's not any different." Matt spent time living in Spain and can speak Spanish, and Enrique has praised his singing on the track, saying, "When I heard Matt sing in Spanish it’s crazy.
They met in 1990 at the airport in Jakarta, Indonesia."I saw her waiting for her luggage and I said, 'Ooh! She came a few days after Christmas and since then we are together."They have five children - Miguel, 16, Rodrigo, 15, twins Cristina and Victoria, 12 and Guillermo, six - but married only in 2010."She didn't want to marry me. Both older sons are successful singers and Enrique's stardom matches his father's.
But the love I feel is the same for all of them."You know, I see Enrique only one or two times a year because he is going all over the world."Sometimes we follow each other's plane. I am very privileged because my kids have amazing lives."Julio's own father was also a hard act to follow. "Julio Iglesias performs at the Royal Albert Hall on May 13 and 19. His album 1 The Collection is released on May 19 by Sony Music.
I land somewhere and they tell me, 'Oh your son will land in one hour' and I wait for him."But if they tell Enrique I will land in one hour he doesn't wait for me. Julio senior was an eminent gynaecologist in Madrid who was 90 when he fathered his last child."I miss him very much.
"You British started all this," he protests."I came to London and my manager told me, 'The papers are all saying Julio has been with 3,000 women'. Now we are in 2014 the number must be up to 20,000! Like everything there is the fantasy and the reality and the reality is that I am the pappy of eight kids.
But you cannot go from door to door saying, 'Look, it's not true what the papers say' and so the fantasy goes on."His first marriage to Isabel Preysler, a Filipina TV presenter related to Spanish nobility, produced three children - Isabel (known as Chabeli), now 42, Julio Junior, 41 and Enrique 38 - but ended in 1979 after eight years, supposedly because of his infidelities, which allegedly included Diana Ross, Priscilla Presley and Bianca Jagger. I arranged to send flowers - oldfashioned, very romantic. It turns out he means Miranda wanted to test the relationship before committing."After five years she says 'Let's prove more.'"After the last baby I said, 'Enough! ' But I have been mar- ried to her since the first time I saw her.
