Enrique Iglesias Has Some Pool Time Fun On The 4th Of The July With One Of His Twins

Enrique Iglesias celebrated America’s birthday with one of his twins in the water! The doting father was in carefree spirits on the 4th and it looks like he knows how to bring out the giggles.

??? Happy 4th of July!

Iglesias posted a video via Instagram of one of his twins hanging out in a crab float while the Spanish singer provided all the entertainment. While in the water Enrique acted like a whale, spitting out water while his 6-month-old twin couldn’t hold back the excitement giggling uncontrollably.

“Happy 4th of July! ,” the 43-year-old singer captioned the previous post.

Wednesday was a day to honor America but Enrique and his longtime girlfriend Anna Kournikova have been front and center supporting their native countries during the 2018 FIFA World Cup. And what better way to root their countries on but with their two kiddos.

Kournikova has been ‘playing Switzerland,’ and sharing pics of her twins showing support for both of their parent’s countries. On Sunday, the 37-year-old tennis star posted a shot on her Instagram holding both of her babes wearing coordinating Russia shirts, one wearing blue while another wearing white.

But not worry, Nicholas and Lucy didn’t forget about their Dad and his native country of Spain. In a second snap, the twins are pictured cuddled up to each other on a chair wearing matching Spain jerseys.

The new parents have been uber private in the past of their relationship over the years, rarely speaking publicly about each other. Fans were floored when news broke that Anna had given birth to twins in December. The couple kept the pregnancy a secret during the entire nine months until Lucy and Nicholas’ arrival.

Since welcoming their twins the two can’t help but share the joy their twins have brought them, often sharing posts of their son and daughter. It’s been a nice change for the singer and tennis player’s fans that are now able to feel more connected to the pair.

Enrique performed at a concert in March in Budapest and gave a shout out to his twins passionately telling the crowd, “I became a father 12 weeks ago and I can absolutely tell you two things: I love my babies! I love them very much.”

Adrianne Haslet-Davis, Boston Bombing Survivor, Performs for First Time

Despite losing part of her left leg in the Boston Marathon bombing last year, a professional dancer is back on stage.

Adrianne Haslet-Davis, from Boston, performed Wednesday at the 2014 TED Conference in Vancouver, British Columbia – her first time dancing in front of an audience since she was injured.

Wearing a white, sparkling short dress, Haslet-Davis, 33, showed off her new high-tech prosthetic leg as she twirled across the floor with dance partner Christian Lightner to a shortened version of “Ring My Bells” by Enrique Iglesias.

“I’m thrilled to have danced again,” Haslet-Davis said in a statement released after her performance. “I was always determined to dance again, and I knew that I had to, that I would, and here I am,” she said.

Haslet-Davis and her husband, Air Force Maj. Adam Davis, are among the more than 260 people who were injured at the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon.

Hugh Herr, director of biomechatronics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said at the online conference that he started designing the bionic leg specifically for dancing after visiting Haslet-Davis in the hospital. Herr, himself a double amputee, said he wanted the dancer to be able to get back to what she loved doing.

“A human being can never be broken,” Herr said at the conference.

Herr lost both legs in a climbing accident in 1982, and climbs today with his own personally designed legs.

Herr said he spent hours in the lab studying dance to see what movements and forces were needed to create the prosthetic for Haslet-Davis.

Haslet-Davis said she hopes to dance publicly again soon on Dancing with the Stars.

After finishing her performance, Haslet-Davis sported a huge smile, wiped a tear from her eye and took a bow.

Nick Silverio Rescues Babies Through His Crisis Hotline

Florida Man Saves Infants Through His Crisis Hotline

When Miami businessman Nick Silverio answers the phone, often there’s a tiny little life in the balance.

As the founder of A Safe Haven for Newborns, a nonprofit he founded in 2001 to provide a 24-hour-bilingual referral hotline for new mothers on the verge of abandoning their infants, Silverio, 70, says each call can save a child.

“It’s an overwhelming experience to know a child can grow up,” says Silverio. “It feels just as overwhelming the first [time a child was saved] as it does the 206th.”

To date, Silverio has helped 206 newborns find their way to loving adoptive homes in Florida. Looking to support the safe haven law passed by the Florida legislature in 2000 that enables desperate parents to leave infants up to a week old at hospitals and fire stations no questions asked, Silverio dipped into his own pocket the following year begin his organization.

“It’s my purpose in life,” says Silverio, who takes no salary from the nonprofit and who has also helped frightened moms get their babies back under the law’s 30-day grace period.

His outreach changed the life of 10-year-old Kristopher Terrell, who is now the youngest of five children to parents Aja Iglesias-Terrell, 44, and Richard Terrell, 53. Ten years ago, Silverio answered his 24-hour crisis hotline to discover a frightened teenage mother on the other end. A week earlier she’d given birth to a baby boy. Now, feeling in no position to raise a child, the distraught girl said she didn’t know what to do.

Calmly, Silverio told her he would be right over. Hopping in his car, Silverio purchased a baby carrier, then continued on to the girl’s apartment, where he found the anxious teen hovering over a sleeping infant clad in a blue and white jumpsuit – little Kristopher Terrell.

“Uncle Nick is my hero,” says Kristopher, now a fourth-grader. “He’s the one who introduced me to my mom and dad. It’s good that he helps babies.”

The nonprofit proved a lifesaver for Silverio, too. Married almost 32 years to his beloved Gloria, he was devastated when she was killed in a car accident in 1999. Godfather to 14 children, Silverio bore the loss without the companionship of any children of his own – his attempts with Gloria to start a family having ended one heartbreaking Christmas Eve after Gloria suffered her second difficult miscarriage.

“She loved kids,” Silverio says. “She loved seeing them grow and seeing them happy. We were always told we would have been wonderful parents.”

Looking to honor her memory, he found a fit when he learned about Florida’s safe haven law meant to protect babies from being abandoned.

“Helping give these babies a life,” he says, “has turned my tragedy into joy for others.”

Today A Safe Haven for Newborns, staffed by 300 volunteers, operates in all 67 Florida counties, partnering with fire chiefs, emergency medical services and hospitals to take in infants and then move them on to adoption agencies. Thanks to Silverio, other states look to Florida for advice on implementing infant-protection laws.

“When I was growing up, you’d hear of babies being abandoned in canals, in public bathrooms, in garbage dumpsters,” says Florida state senator Rene Garcia. “Since Nick got involved, you never hear of that. He took it upon himself to bring awareness to the rest of the state to show this law exists, to make sure teens and women and parents knew this law was out there.”

“He’s reaching people in their most desperate moment,” says firefighter Tammy Henghold, who was twice on hand when safe haven babies were left at her station in Lauderhill. “He’s saving a life every day.”

And he’s helping to build families as well, says Kristopher’s grateful mom, Aja.

“Because of Nick’s act of love,” she says, “we are blessed to have Kristopher in our home and our life. We consider Nick family.”

Fergie: The Holidays Have Been ‘All About Baby Axl’

12/29/2013 at 10:00 AM EST

The holidays are just a little bit more special for Fergie, now that she’s seeing them through the eyes of her baby boy.

“It’s all about baby Axl this year,” says the Black Eyed Peas singer, who welcomed her first child with husband Josh Duhamel in August.

She says her little boy quickly caught the holiday spirit.

“It’s really cute because he’s been looking at the tree and the lights in our house and he’s very fascinated by this and the ornaments,” she says. “He wants to touch it and feel the way that the bristles feel on his feet and hands and he’s very curious about it. It’s such a happy feeling as a parent to see the curiosity in your child’s eyes.”

Fergie is set to host the West Coast party on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest. This year the annual celebration will feature performances by stars including Ariana Grande, Capital Cities, Daughtry, Fall Out Boy, Florida Georgia Line, Jennifer Hudson, Jason Derulo, Enrique Iglesias and Robin Thicke.

The night kicks off at 8 p.m. ET on ABC with a two-hour countdown of the 30 greatest female artists in music, followed by the performances from L.A. and New York’s Times Square and the live countdown to the ball drop at midnight.
