Singer Enrique Iglesias and retired tennis player Anna Kournikova surprised fans late last month when they announced the birth of their third child, a daughter. However, they waited even longer before sharing the name they choose for her.
At the time of their initial announcement, the couple, who have been dating for nearly 20 years, did not share their daughter’s name, but in a recent interview with People, the singer revealed they had named her Masha, which translates to Mary in her mother’s native Russian.
Iglesias announced Masha’s birth on February 13, 2020, with a photo right of him holding his baby girl right after her delivery. Along with the photo, he wrote, “My Sunshine 01.30.2020.”

Masha joins her twin siblings Nicholas and Lucy, who were born in 2018. Iglesias told People that the sibling introduction went “very smoothly.” “They actually love it,” he told the outlet. “There’s a two-year difference so I was a little scared. I was like, ‘How are they going to react?’”
“And I have two dogs so my house is chaotic. When we first came home with Masha, I was like, ‘Oh, how is everybody going to react?’” In addition to his being a dad-of-three, Iglesias will next be touring with Ricky Martin.

It’s tough. It’s tough, but it’s doable. Obviously, we’re fortunate enough that if we want to do it, we can do it.”
