Gerard Piqué and Shakira Split in June 2022

The power couple met in 2010 when he starred in her music video for the FIFA World Cup anthem “Waka Waka.” She made their romance official via Instagram in a romantic March 2011 post. The couple has two sons, welcoming Milan on January 22, 2013, and Sasha just over two years later on January 29, 2015. The family of four called Barcelona home, where they raised their sons and Gerard played soccer.

Shakira and Gerard stunned fans on June 4 by announcing they were parting ways after a dozen years together. “We regret to confirm that we are separating. For the well-being of our children, who are our highest priority, we request respect for (our) privacy. Thank you for your understanding,” they wrote in a joint statement. The pair never tied the knot, as Shakira made it known she didn’t want to be a bride. “To tell you the truth, marriage scares the out of me. I don’t want him to see me as the wife. I’d rather him see me as his girlfriend,” she revealed in a January 2020 60 Minutes interview.

While Gerard has moved on with Clara, the “She Wolf” singer admitted she was having a more difficult time with their split.

“I can only say that I put everything I had into this relationship and my family,” Shakira told Elle during an interview published on September 21, adding that “everything is so raw and new” in the aftermath of their breakup.

“The big dream of having a family forever, to see that dream broken or shredded into pieces is probably one of the most painful things that you can ever go through,” the “Whenever, Wherever” singer explained. “But I think that women, we are resilient. You know, we have this resiliency that is just innate in all of us.”
