Julio Iglesias - Julio Iglesias' Shock At Grandfather News
Julio Iglesias became a grandfather for the second time earlier this year (12) - and he knew nothing about it.
The veteran Spanish singer's eldest daughter Chabeli gave birth to her second child, a girl named Sofia, in January (12) but it was six weeks before she told her father about her baby news.
And although Iglesias admits he was "a little angry" Chabeli had kept the birth a secret for so long, he's adamant he backs her decision not to go public with the news after she miscarried twins in 2010.
He tells Britain's Hello! magazine, "I haven't seen her yet. She's in North Carolina. But I imagine that within a few days she'll come to (my home in) Miami and we'll all meet her... I think it was a surprise for everyone. I knew she was pregnant, but I must confess that I didn't know of the birth until a month and a half later."
Asked if he understood why Chabeli decided to keep the birth under wraps, he replies, "Yes. And you have to respect your children, even if you don't understand them. I love my daughter very much, and she loves me. I fully support her.
"She called me a few weeks ago and said, 'Dad, you've got a granddaughter. She's beautiful.' At first I was a little angry... well, fairly angry. But I eventually understood her reasons."
