[Enrique Iglesias] Biography

Enrique Miguel Iglesias Preysler is a Spanish singer and songwriter who has enjoyed immense success in both the Spanish-language and English-language markets. He signed a multi-album deal with Universal Music Group, followed by Sony Music, and has released 27 Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart number-ones, 24 Latin Pop Airplay chart number-ones, and 14 number-ones on Billboard Dance charts, leading to him having the title of King of Latin Pop, as well as being named the 14th most successful top male dance club artist of all time, with estimated sales of over 70 million records worldwide.

[Enrique Iglesias] Early life

Enrique received the majority of his education in Miami, and also briefly attended St. Brendan High School, a private Catholic school in Miami.

Enrique Iglesias is a world-renowned singer, songwriter, and producer hailing from Madrid, Spain. Born on May 8, 1975, he is the third and youngest child of two iconic figures in the entertainment industry, Spanish singer Julio Iglesias and Filipina socialite and magazine journalist Isabel Preysler. Iglesias also found out later in life that he was born with an extremely rare congenital condition known as situs inversus, which causes the organs in the body to be situated on the opposite side from where they should normally be. In December 1981, Iglesias' grandfather was kidnapped by the Basque group ETA, prompting Enrique and his brother Julio to move to Miami, Florida with their father and his then-girlfriend. Iglesias spent the majority of his childhood in Miami, where he was raised primarily by their nanny Elvira Olivares and attended St. Brendan High School, a private Catholic school.

[Enrique Iglesias] Personal life

Enrique Iglesias began a relationship with Russian tennis player Anna Kournikova in late 2001. The two are now living in Miami, Florida and are proud parents of three children: fraternal twins born on the 16 December 2017, and a daughter born on 30 January 2020. Additionally, in 2003, Iglesias had to face a minor medical issue having a surgery to remove a circular mole from the right side of his face, citing concerns that over time it could become cancerous.
