Who is Shakira’s husband or boyfriend?
Who is Shakiras husband? Piqué, Shakira’s longtime boyfriend, was born on February 2, 1987, in Barcelona, Spain. Piqué began his soccer career in 1997, when he was ten years old, at La Masia de Can Planes, or FC Barcelona’s youth academy (Barcelona’s youth football club). He trained at the school for seven years before joining the Manchester United academy at the age of 17 in 2004.
He rejoined FC Barcelona in 2008, and two years later, at the age of 23, he began dating Shakira. Her age was 33 years. Piqué has won four La Liga titles and two European Cups while playing for FC Barcelona. Piqué and Shakira aren’t married, despite the fact that they’ve been open about their relationship since 2011 and have been going strong ever since. In fact, Shakira stated in an interview with 60 Minutes that she prefers to remain Piqué’s girlfriend — at least for the time being.
“To tell you the truth, marriage scares the sh*t out of me. I don’t want him to see me as the wife. I’d rather him see me as his girlfriend,” she said, adding, “I wanna keep him on his toes. I want him to think that anything’s possible depending on behavior.”
How Did Shakira and Gerard Piqué met?
The couple met on the set of one of her music videos. Piqué and Shakira met in 2010 when he was in her music video for “Waka Waka (This Time For Africa)” which featured the Cape Town, South Africa fusion band, Freshlyground.
“It all started when we were together in South Africa and I wrote to her,” Piqué told Spain’s TV3 in 2016. “She was already there because she sang in the opening ceremony, and I asked her what the weather was like. It’s the typical stupid question, and the normal answer is to tell me to bring a jacket [June/July are winter in South Africa],” he explained. “But she started telling me what the weather was, like, every minute, and it got to the point where I told her we [Spain] would have to get to the World Cup final to see her again—she was singing at the final.”
