E!online reports, Colombian singer Shakira expressed her views regarding her long term relationship with Spanish footballer Gerard Piqué, who is seemingly unwilling to marry the best defender.
Co-headlining the Pepsi Super Bowl LIV Halftime Show with Jennifer Lopez this Sunday, Shakira told 60 Minutes, “To tell you the truth, marriage scares the sh-t out of me,” sitting next to Piqué. “I don’t want him to see me as ‘the wife.’ I want him to see me as his girlfriend. Lover, his girlfriend, a little forbidden fruit, you know? I want to keep him on his toes. I want him to think that anything’s possible, depending on behavior.”
Balancing Between Career & Parenthood
Shakira told Parents in 2016, “Becoming a mom forced me to re-prioritize and make room for the things that are most important while recognizing that there are things I can let go of and the world won’t crumble around me.” On the other hand, she has taken her stand to nurture a complete family as dedicated parents to the couple’s two boys who eventually hail from distinguished fields.
“Growing up with a working mom is a start. I also think their dad is a good example of a modern man to emulate. Gerard and I pretty much share all parenting responsibilities, although I’m definitely the disciplinarian.”
Milan being the first issue of the duo, Shakira surged to Us Weekly saying, “Thank God the father is very involved. He has been amazing. The baby spends as much time with me as he does with his dad. He’s the kind of dad who’s full hands-on. He changes diapers, he bathes him, he enjoys playing with the baby, he enjoys feeding him, all of that stuff. So that’s a great help for me, you know. I can’t imagine doing all of this and not having the father do his part of the job. So that’s a huge help to me.”
Going Beyond Legal Marriage: Destiny
The lovebirds who rarely speak in public about the dynamics of their relationship, however, keep everyone well posted in social media in their stratagem. And Shakira’s recent reference of Piqué as her husband has served beyond a denotation ironically.
The philanthropist said “I want to reproduce. I’m semi-married. I used to believe I had to be married to have kids…The culture kind of gives us tunnel vision. But we function as a married couple; we don’t need papers for that”, whose Barefoot Foundation funds schools in Colombia. After being with Piqué for a few years, in 2014 she considered marriage not to be “a necessary step in a couple’s life.”
She told Glam Belleza Latina, “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.”
When asked how she and Piqué managed to handle two kids besides their demanding schedules, Shakira told Hello! in 2017, “We try to do the best we can. There’s a lot of love, that’s the foundation of any family. You have to take care of it and dedicate time. Family is the most important thing for me. The rest is secondary.”
The Journey Of Endurance
However, she told The Guardian in November, “At least, we are normal people but our lives are very unnatural in away. We try to hide all the unnatural things and pretend we’re a regular family. I don’t want to overload them with every single detail of my career, or every victory. I’m more interested in them learning about the obstacles, my difficulties and their dad’s. They weren’t born when I was back in Colombia and every single door was shut in my face. Those are the stories I want to tell them because life isn’t always easy. Not everything happens as you planned.”
At least after almost a decade together, when she played “Me Enamoré” for Piqué, Shakira recalled to ET Canada saying, “he looks at me with those eyes, like awww…really appreciating the fact that I, almost, paid a homage to that moment in our lives when we met each other—that turning point in our lives where everything changed.”
The family spent Christmas in Miami ahead of the Super Bowl at Hard Rock Stadium who were spotted watching Sasha and Milan’s soccer practice in December, wearing T-shirts in the balmy winter in Florida.
Shakira told The Guardian, being a mom “is the hardest job I’ve ever done. I’m never sure if I’m doing it right. I’m always second-guessing myself. I love being a mother but it’s challenging to keep the balance—to not let motherhood prevent you from reading a good book, going out with your boyfriend-slash-husband, having an adult conversation.”
