The former tennis pro and singer is particularly deprived of his family and his life in Miami, but since arriving, Masha has shared more photos of his growing family.
The couple welcomed their third child on January 30, after welcoming twins Nicholas and Lucy in December 2017.
Earlier this year, Iglesias posted a cute video to his social media accounts in which he holds baby Masha and makes her dance for the camera. The singer, 45, captioned the clip with a simple heart emoji.
Masha – a Russian diminutive named Mary – sat in her father’s lap as he moved his hands to the beat of the music. She was wearing a cute little navy blue dress with red and green stripes.

Enrique told People on March 4 that the twins’ transition to a new sibling went “very well”, adding that “they really love it.”
He explained, “There is a difference of two years, so I was a little scared. I thought to myself, “How are they going to react? And I have two dogs, so my house is chaotic.
Adding, “When we got home with Masha, I was like, ‘Oh, how is everyone going to react? “

Iglesias also told Entertainment Tonight earlier this year that he was happy to change diapers and bottle-feed the baby.
“I really am. I’m pretty practical, ”he says.
He added that he hoped his children would follow in their tennis mother’s footsteps, rather than opt for a music career like his.
“I can honestly tell you that if I had to pick one, definitely sporty,” he explained. “Yeah, I would say yes, just because I love sports. I love golf, I love tennis, and I wouldn’t mind seeing one of my little girls playing tennis.

He said: “It’s one of the best feelings in the world. [I’m more responsible]. I drive more slowly. I think about stupid things a few more times before I do them.
Adding, “Hope to be a cool, easy going dad. “
