Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova have been an item for more than 12 years now, but there's one thing they haven't done -- besides getting married, that is. The couple, who says they're happy not making things official, have not met together with Enrique's famous father Julio.
In fact, Anna's never even met her boyfriend's dad. The Latin pop star told the April 2014 issue of Billboard magazine, "The last 14 years, 15 years of my life have flown by. And that's the only way I can truly explain it ... there's no reason why -- it's not his fault, and it's not my fault."
Huh. Seems like it's somebody's fault! Doesn't this sound abnormal to anyone else? I mean sure, don't bother introducing the parents until you're in a committed, secure relationship, but you think after more than a decade together, it would be time?
Or maybe this is just one of those things that goes on for so long that it turns into a bigger deal than it needs to be, so everyone just avoids it.
Or it could have something to do with Julio's refusal to collaborate with his son on any projects. The star, who is the best-selling Latin music artist of all time, said last year, "Singing with my son is something that would come off as very commercial ... I think that he and I will never sing together. If we sing, it will be at a dinner, when he has kids and wants his kids to sing, just like my little ones do. I don't believe in a public commercial duet between my kids and me."
Well, if Julio is going to sing with his grandchildren, I suggest he at least try to meet their potential mother.
How long do you think is an appropriate amount of time of dating before meeting the parents?
