Anna Kournikova is planning to start a family with her boyfriend Enrique Iglesias - once she has reached the pinnacle of her career.
The couple, dating since 2002, sparked rumours of a possible engagement earlier this year (09) when the tennis ace was snapped with a sparkler on her left hand.
Both stars played coy and refused to confirm the rumours - but the blonde beauty has revealed she'd love to settle down with her singer boyfriend and have kids.
She tells Britain's Glamour magazine, "We try to keep out relationship as private as possible. I don't read all that stuff about 'Anna's pregnant/married/broken up'.
"I would like to have kids, but years from now. I'm only 28 and there are still things I want to do first."
And Kournikova has revealed the secrets to the longevity of her relationship with the Hero hitmaker - laughter and respect.
She adds, "We have a mutual respect. We're both very independent but we try not to go too long without seeing each other. When he's away I miss his humour. He's a complete joker. He knows how to make fun of himself, which is very cool."
