Speaking to Hollywood Reporter, he hinted Erica may have returned to her artist roots herself as he cryptically said: ‘there’s a connection there in some aspect of her view of life.’ 

Enrique is a painter, photographer and sculptor who was born in Nueva Paz, Cuba and lived in Spain and Puerto Rico as a child before moving to New York City in 1982. 

‘Just the very fact that someone else has an interest in trying to hold emotions or hold what they’re going through in the world with songs, with words, and lyrics — that in itself is a point of connection,’ he added.

Erica, who was previously married to businessman James Packer, said her partner was ‘cool, calm and collected’ while he worked, adding: ‘It’s a very personal thing for him. But I think he draws from real life.’

Erica sparked engagement rumours in November last year after debuting a diamond ring on her wedding finger, and was still wearing the sparkler in March.  

The 41-year-old has even been the subject of chatter that she may have secretly walked down the aisle with Enrique.

The Sydney Morning Herald’s PS Sydney reported Friday that the column is, ‘unable to verify rumours that they are actually already married’ however the talk persists. 

The paper goes on to claim that Erica has so inspired her new love that she has, ‘been his muse for his latest collection’. 

Enrique’s works are owned by high profile stars such as Ridley Scott and Ellen DeGeneres, PS Sydney claims.

Erica apparently met the divorced father during the school run one morning.

Her three children, and Enrique’s four children, all attend the same school in Los Angeles, where the couple are now based.

‘They are very much in love and together,’ a friend told The Daily Telegraph earlier this year.
