However, singer Shakira and her partner, footballer Gerard Pique are in some of the couples of the world who celebrate their birthdays together. Whether by coincidence or a stroke of luck that prophesied their loving relationship, Shakira and Pique share the same birthday 2 February. So today shakira is celebrating her 40th birthday whereas Gerard is celebrating 30th. So here’s we wishing the couple a very happy birthday.
How they met?
The Colombian crooner and the Spanish national team’s centre-back met in 2010 when Piquue appeared in the music video for “Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)”, which was the official song of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
The two initially dismissed talks about their relationship as false. However, there were talks in various Spanish media outlets about a possible affair. Several gossip magazines published photographs of the couple holding hands together and kissing in Barcelona.
Going public about relationship
The couple went public with their relationship in March 2011 when Shakira put the confirmation about them on Twitter and Facebook.She posted a picture of them together on twitter. The romantic snap shows the smiling pair in front of a beach setting, with bright sun beaming down on their faces and their arms wrapped around each other, with the simple message: ‘I present to you my sunshine.’ Later on, Shakira talked openly about their relationship and talked about how the two came together as a pair.
Family of four
The couple has two kids together .Their first child was born in January 2013, and he was named Milan.Their first child’s name has a special meaning, which Shakira pointed out in his birth announcement. It means dear, loving and gracious in Slavic, and in Ancient Roman, eager and laborious. In Sanskrit, it means unification.
They aren’t married
Yes that’s true they are not married yet and for them it’s not a big deal. In an interview with Primer Impacto, she said, “When you feel complete you don’t need to get married, and you don’t think about it.” She also reiterated this fact to Glam Belleza Latina, saying “We already have what’s essential, you know? We have a union, a love for each other, and a baby. I think that those aspects of our relationship are already established, and marriage is not going to change them. But if I’m ever going to get married, he’s the one.”
No Work With Hot Men
Now that’s really cute. Shakira has said that Pique doesn’t let her work with good-looking men in music videos. This is one of the reasons that she made the above sexy video for “Can’t Remember to Forget You” with Rihanna.
She told Billboard, “He’s very territorial, and since he no longer lets me do videos with men, well, I have to do them with women.” It’s more than implied in our relationship that I can’t do videos like I used to. It’s out of the question — which I like, by the way. I like that he protects his turf and he values me, in a way that the only person he would ever let graze my thigh would be Rihanna. She further added.
So once again a very happy birthday to the couple and here are some of the cute pictures together.
