Enrique Iglesias and his partner Anna Kournikova welcomed their third child on January 30, 2020, and they’re sharing their 5-week-old’s timeless name: Mary. The baby girl, who was born on Jan. 30, was called “Sunshine” by both of her parents in their respective birth announcements, but it turns out she has another nickname as well: Masha or Mary in Russian.
After months of speculation, the notoriously private couple shared moving pictures of their daughter’s arrival on social media and received congratulations from all over the world. Enrique Iglesias’ sisters – twins Cristina, Victoria, and Tamara Falco, and celebrities such as Steve Aoki and Annual AA have all sent their best wishes the happy parents.
Mary has been one of the most popular baby names for a long time. The name, which has Hebrew origins and means “bitter,” reached peak popularity in 2000, when it sat in the 46th top spot for girls that year. In both 2017 and 2018, the name was 126th most popular.
The couple began dating in 2001 after meeting on the set of his Escape music video. Enrique has kept his personal life – including his relationship with Anna – out of the spotlight for many years, and shares a few rare shots with his children on Instagram. Congratulations to Enrique, Anna, and big siblings Nicholas and Lucy on little Masha’s arrival!
