How Did Reported New Mom Anna Kournikova Hide Her Pregnancy with Twins?

TMZ reported that Anna Kournikova and longtime partner Enrique Iglesias welcomed twins, Nicholas and Lucy, over the weekend

Anna Kournikova is reportedly a new mom of two — but how did she keep her double baby joy a secret?

The 36-year-old former tennis star and longtime partner Enrique Iglesias welcomed their first children together — fraternal twins named Nicholas and Lucy — over the weekend, according to TMZ. The babies were reportedly born on Saturday in Miami.

Kournikova and Iglesias are famously private, and rarely photographed out and about together — likely why there were no bump sightings ahead of the twins’ reported arrival.

The new mother did, however, share photos of her bare belly as recently as June. She posted a workout video on June 9 showing off her flat stomach, and, again, 10 days later.

In another workout video posted on Aug. 9, the former athlete’s shirt appeared to billow in the wind, successfully masking even a hint of a baby bump.

For the months that followed, however, Kournikova only posted chest-up selfies — and images of her pooches.

And on Saturday — the day she reportedly gave birth — Kournikova shared some more selfies to Instagram. She tagged the photos as taken in Miami.

Kournikova told Women’s Health in 2011 that kids were definitely on her agenda, but marriage wasn’t a priority.

“I absolutely want to have children, whether I have my own or adopt,” said the Russia native, adding, “I love taking care of people.”

Continued Kournikova, “[Marriage] isn’t important to me. I’m in a happy relationship – that’s all that matters … I believe in commitment. I believe in being open and trusting each other and respecting each other completely.”
