While the couple don’t often open up about one another, 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 Russian retired tennis star, 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.”

“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.
