TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) — Pop star Enrique Iglesias misses his newborn twins "like crazy." But he says performing for his fans is the next best thing to being home.

While the Spanish singer has traditionally kept his personal life private, he and his wife, former tennis player Anna Kournikova, took to social media last week to share photos and videos of themselves and their children. He said he wanted to open up to his fans because they have given him so much.

"I don't mind sharing part of my life with them," he said. "I always have, in a way, through my music."

Iglesias performed to nearly 50,000 fans in Tel Aviv Sunday night. Some wore T-shirts proclaiming their love for the 43-year-old pop star, and held signs declaring him the "sexiest father alive."
