Who is Ana Boyer?
Ana Boyer Preysler is a Spanish socialite, Instagram star, and social media influencer. She is the daughter of the economist and politician Miguel Boyer and socialite and television host Isabel Preysler. Through her mother, she is the younger half-sister of pop star Enrique Iglesias. Boyer grew up in a powerful and affluent family and went on to study law and business administration and management as she possessed the same interest for finance and administration as her father. Boyer subsequently took up an internship in New York and another in Sao Paolo. Despite hailing from one of the most prominent families of Spain, Boyer had maintained a low profile for the most part of her life. She did attend various events with her mother and half-sister, Tamara Falcó, but that had been the extent of her exposure to the spotlight. However, that changed after she began dating tennis star Fernando Verdasco, who is a very popular athlete in Spain. In 2017, they got married. Boyer is quite popular on Instagram and receives thousands of likes on each of her posts on the platform.
