Julio Iglesias: My wife's soul is commanding

Julio Iglesias

Julio Iglesias has joked his wife's soul often likes to give his orders.

The Spanish singer is famed for his extravagant sex life, having previously denied reports he's slept with over 3,000 women.

Julio has been with Miranda Rijnsburger for over twenty years, with the pair marrying in 2010. He couldn't be happier with his spouse, saying they were made for each other.

"I love women and they give it back to me quite well. I really love them, but one more than the others: the one with who I have shared my life for 23-and-a-half years [Miranda]. I love her today even more than when I met her the first time," he told

"Our souls are the one and only. Even though sometimes her soul is commanding mine. This is a precious thing and with her I built a huge part of my family."

The 68-year-old star has been re-recording some of his old songs and has been astounded with the results. He believes his voice has improved with age, which he says is common among singers.

"I recorded my old songs again because I sing better today than when I recorded them. Plus, I would like to give another chance to the songs I sing in French and which didn't work well," he explained.

"The age [is what has improved my voice]! Ask Charles Aznavour - he is someone I admire: the older he gets, the better he sings. I also sang with the best singers, [Frank] Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross... They taught me everything."
