A Spanish court ruled yesterday that singer Julio Iglesias - whose hit songs include To All the Girls I've Loved Before - fathered a son, now 43, resolving a paternity dispute that had lasted three decades after the crooner refused to take a DNA test.

Javier Sanchez-Santos was born in 1976 to Portuguese dancer Maria Edite Santos.

The ruling that he's the son of Iglesias can still be appealed.

Madrid-born Iglesias, 75, has sold more than 300 million records in 14 languages, making him the best-selling Latin artist ever.

He turned to singing after a car accident in 1963 ended his burgeoning career as a football player. He has eight other children.

Three were born out of his marriage to Isabel Preysler, and five with his wife, Miranda Rijnsburger.
