Baby for Iglesias' grandfather, 87
Enrique Iglesias
The new arrival will be uncle to heart throb Enrique Iglesias
Spanish superstar Enrique Iglesias is to get a new uncle - the baby of his 87-year-old grandfather.

Julio Iglesias senior - father of singer Julio- told Spanish magazine Hola! that he and his American wife Ronna Keitt, 40, were expecting a baby boy this spring.

The news follows Spanish media reports that Keitt had visited a US clinic providing artificial insemination.

The baby boy will be uncle to 10 nieces and nephews, including Enrique, 29.

He will also be a brother to veteran crooner Julio junior, now 61, who became famous in the 1970s.

Rumours

In his interview with Hola!, Julio senior finally confirmed some persistent rumours in the Spanish press of Keitt's pregnancy.

They had increased since he told reporters his wife was "in the hands of doctors having treatment", said AFP news agency.

The baby is expected in April.

As a gynaecologist, Julio senior helped deliver the first three of his son Julio's seven children.

He married Keitt in March 2002, at an intimate ceremony to which not even his children were invited, said the Mural.com news website.
