Shakira got to know about the former Barcelona FC player Gerard Piqué in 2010's FIFA anthem, 'Waka Waka'(This time for Africa).
In 2011, Piqué confirmed their relationship on Twitter and Facebook. In the same year, they were seen engaging in PDA during a live performance of Shakira on her 'The Sun Comes Out World Tour.'
In 2012, they looked dreamy on the red carpet of FIFA Ballon d'Or Awards in Switzerland. The same year they announced that they are expecting their first child, and they welcomed Milan Piqué Mebarak in January 2013.
Shakira and Piqué did not marry each other. In 2014, she said in an interview that they have all the essentials for a relationship post marriage, but if she has to marry, Gerard will be the one.
In 2015, Gerard and Shakira welcomed a baby brother to Milan, Sasha Piqué Mebarak.
Shakira released the MV for Me Enamoré in 2017 from her album El Dorado, a tribute to her love story with Gerard.
However, after 11 years of companionship, on June 4th, 2022, Shakira and Gerard both announced the news of their separation in a joint statement.
