Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova’s love story is no less than a fairytale! They met in 2001 while shooting a music video and have preferred to keep their decade-long relationship away from the spotlight, even after having three kids together. But the biggest question is why the couple preferred to keep their lives private in such a way that the former Russian tennis player keeps her distance from attending her husband’s concert.

The 48-year-old Spanish artist is currently in Canada for concerts and performing live, and in the midst of this, an intimate discovery has emerged. It explains why fans may not see his wife or children on his tour.

After releasing his new song ‘Space in My Heart,’ the 48-year-old Spanish singer is in the Maple Country. But the biggest question is why his kids or his wife are not a part of his concert, raising a lot of questions in fans’s heads. However, in an interview with PEOPLE, he opened up about how he has to leave his personal fan club, which is his kids, behind at home.

He stated, “When I go on the road, I miss them a lot. I feel like they’re still not old enough to go on the road with me. I like quiet and to be in my zone before I go on stage. I don’t like a lot of craziness going on backstage. It’s the complete opposite of Almost Famous.”
