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.”
And according to Iglesias, Kournikova is more than the right fit for the job of mom. Speaking to PEOPLE en Español in 2007, the singer admitted, “The only thing I can say is that, in my opinion, Anna, whether we are together or not, would be an ideal mother.”
“I think she’d be the perfect mother, and I say it regardless of whether I’d be with her or not,” added Iglesias of The Biggest Loser alum.
