The 'Hero' singer welcomed twins Nicholas and Lucy into the world with his longterm partner Anna Kournikova - whom he was been with for 17 years - 10 months ago, and has said that whilst he's doing things to make sure he's "more responsible" now that he's a dad, he still wants his kids to think he's "easy going".

Speaking during an appearance on ITV's 'Lorraine', he said: "It's one of the best feelings in the world. [I'm more responsible]. I drive slower. I think about stupid things a few more times before doing them.

The news comes after 43-year-old Enrique previously gushed over his twins during a concert in Budapest, just 12 weeks after his tots were born.

He said: "I became a father 12 weeks ago and I can absolutely tell you two things: I love my babies! I love them very much. Actually three things [I love]: I love my girl and I super f***ing love you guys for being here tonight. This is for your loyalty."

And his mother Isabel Preysler says Enrique is "extraordinarily happy" with life as a father to his "perfect" twins.

Isabel said: "Enrique is extraordinarily happy. The children are perfect, beautiful and growing phenomenally well."

Whilst his sister Tamara added: "Lucy looks more like Anna, she is blonde and has blue eyes, and Nico looks more like Enrique." 

Enrique has kept his personal life - including his relationship with Anna - out of the spotlight for many years and he previously admitted he doesn't think "perfect relationships" exist as there can be "bad times" between every couple.

He shared: "You go through your good times, you go through your bad times. It's a tough thing for me to believe there's such a thing as the perfect relationship. I don't think that exists ...

"Firstly, she's the coolest girl in the world. And she understands who I am, to the point where she's willing to sacrifice her personal time with me and let me do my music. It's a huge sacrifice and I respect that tremendously."
