Not everyone at the age of 75 would be ready to accept an adult son. Julio Iglesias is no exception and he wasn't too happy with this news.

One way or another, on July 10, 2019, the Madrid court ruled that the popular singer is, in fact, the biological father of 43-year-old Javier Sánchez Santos, who had been trying to prove his relation to the musician for a long time.

The legal proceedings on this case started back in 2017. Then Javier claimed that the results of the DNA-test, which Iglesias had numerous times refused to give, would back his story. Santos promised to prove it in court, which he finally did.

The mother of Julio's newly-acquired heir is former ballerina María Edite who claimed that she had a fleeting romance with the star in 1975, which resulted in Javier's birth.

Interestingly enough, at that time, the singer was still married to journalist and TV presenter Isabel Preysler, Enrique Iglesias' mother.

By the way, Julio Iglesias has eight more children, apart from Santos. Three of which were born in his marriage with Preysler and five were born by model Miranda Rijnsburger.
