Colombian singer married to Gerard Pique. The soccer player is 10 years younger than her. They have known each other since the 2010 World Cup.
On June 11, Pique shared on Instagram and personally Twitter a video of Shakira performing in London, England. The program is part of her worldwide tour called El Dorado. The Spanish center-back praised the best performance he had ever seen. In the comment section, many fans expressed their admiration for the love of the couple.
Shakira and Pique first met in 2010. At this time, Shakira just broke up with his boyfriend Antonio de la Rua who was the son of former Argentine President Fernando de la Rua. However, the female singer has not disclosed information to the press. Later sources claimed that Antonio de la Rua deceived Shakira, which hurt her.
Shakira was chosen to perform the theme song of that year’s World Cup in South Africa. When filming the MV for the song in Madrid (Spain), she invited a number of players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Gerard Piqué, Dani Alves, Carlos Kameni, Lionel Messi and Rafael Marquez to illustrate. She did not expect that cooperation has changed her life.
Among the guests, Gerard Piqué expressed his special attention to the seniors. Later, Shakira went to South Africa to prepare to perform at the opening ceremony of the World Cup. In his home town of Spain, Pique kept thinking about his dream lover. He wanted to talk to her but couldn’t find a reason to start. Finally, he ventured to ask her about the weather in South Africa.
They chatted during the tournament. The two were happy to discover they had a birthday (February 2). Shakira said Pique had promised he would win the tournament with the team so he could meet her at the closing ceremony. Pique’s promise came true. In the final, Spain overtook the Netherlands thanks to the only goal in extra time. This is the team’s first world championship.
In March 2011, Shakira publicly started dating on Twitter. They gave birth to sons Milan and Sasha in 2013 and 2015. She often shares photos of her partner and children on social networks. Although many times entangled rumors of each other, Shakira and Pique still quietly together. Her love story is a testament to the special relationship between love and football.
