Happy Birthday Julio Iglesias! Today the popular Latin crooner turns 70 years old, but he doesn't look a day over 50. Iglesias is known as the charming Spanish crooner with the hypnotizing romantic ballads and the suave touch. Although he and his son Enrique reportedly don't get along too well, it's clear that singing and smoldering looks run in the family genes.

What is it about Julio Iglesias that makes ladies swoon? I'm telling you, from our abuelas, to our moms, to some younger ones, many of us Latinas (and non-Latinas alike) don't mind listening to his timeless romantic words.
